Matt Groening Says There's No Doubt There Will Be Another SIMPSONS Movie
During an appearance ta last week’s Comic-Con, The Simpsons creator, Matt Groening revealed that there will be a Simpsons movie sequel in the future. After the success of the 2007 Simpsons movie, this doesn’t come as too much of a shock, but it is surprising it took so long! Here’s exactly what he had to say about it:
“No doubt there will be another Simpsons movie one of these days. I think Disney wants something for its money.”
As for why we didn’t get another movie sooner, Groening explained:
“This is a true answer. The first Simpsons Movie almost killed us. We didn’t have a B-team waiting to do The Simpsons Movie, so the same people who wrote, animated, voiced and did the music for The Simpsons TV show also did the movie. That was in 2007. We’re almost recovered, almost.”
That is pretty crazy to think that the people who write and draw and voice the weekly TV show were the same people who added the movie to their schedule and busted it all out. But it’s fun to know we will get another one. I remember being so surprised at how much I enjoyed the first movie, so I’m confident this will be great as well.
Are you excited for another Simpsons movie?!
