In a city of humanoid animals, a hustling theater impresario's attempt to save his theater with a singing competition becomes grander than he anticipates even as its finalists' find that their lives will never be the same.
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her friends Brainy, Clumsy, and Hefty on an exciting race through the Forbidden Forest, leading to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history.
In the movie, it shows both (in Paris) a nearly completed Statue of Liberty and the start of the construction of the Eiffel Tower. In reality, these two world'famous landmarks were never in the same continent at the same time. The Statue of Liberty was given to the United States in 1886, before the start of the Eiffel Tower's construction, which commenced in 1887 (and was completed in 1889). Both were constructed by Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel. But Eiffel only started construction work on the tower bearing his name after the Statue of Liberty has been shipped to the United States.

Ballerina is a great french-Canadian animation film about 2 waifs who escape their orphanage and go to Paris to reach their dreams & never give up, Félicie (Elle Fanning) with a passion a natural talent for dance & Victor (Dane Dehaan) an inventor. Beautiful music, landscapes & sceneries, a Belle Époque tale that involves the construction of the Eiffel Tower & the Statue of Liberty. A kindly maid & a distinguished professor manage her to succeed. A movie for the whole family.
