We’ll see a more mature Smurfette when The Smurfs 2 opens in theaters later this month, according to the woman who voices the character, Katy Perry .

In the sequel, Smurfette is kidnapped by the villainous Gargamel and taken to Paris. There, he hopes to harness a spell she knows to transform Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties into actual Smurfs.

Calling the story line “really heartfelt,” Katy tells Entertainment Tonight , “It's like everybody goes through these, kind of, coming-of-age growing pains, questioning existence.”

She adds, “In some ways, she's almost, like, turning into a teenager. She's like, 'Why am I here? What am I doing?'”

The Smurfs 2 debuts July 31.
