Hype is building a year in advance for this crowd pleaser!
The Simpsons are coming to a theater near you, gracing the silver screen for the first time in Simpsons history.
Voice actors from the series have been hitting the talk show circuits, most recently on the Conan O'Brien show, bringing their wit, characters, and creative genius to the fore of North American culture once again.
Are you in the mood for a The Simpsons Movie prescreening teaser?
This animated film will feature the voice talents of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Harry Shearer, Pamela Hayden, and Tress MacNeille. Guest starring in the movie are Erin Brockovich, Minnie Driver, and Albert Brooks.
Producer Matt Groening has been quoted as saying "We are very excited about the performances in this movie. Come next Oscars, we think it's going to be Milhouse's night". Another producer, Al Jean says, "I can absolutely guarantee that this film will far exceed the wildest expectations of every Simpsons fan. Start lining up at the theater now, preferably in costume."
The Simpsons Movie will hit the box office on July 27th, 2007.
Read a complete cast listing of the original Simpsons series (1989) and see how the creation of cartoonist Matt Groening has become so popular and coined by many as the best cartoon series ever, and the longest running primetime show on television. 17 years in the business is a long time, and quite the steady voice-over job!
