The Simpsons Movie, as we covered last year, is now out on the big screen featuring the voice over talents of people we've let into our homes for over a decade, including the voice of the eternal 10 year old boy, Nancy Cartwright, also known as the Simpsons character, Bart Simpson.
Other cast mates include Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Harry Shearer, Pamela Hayden, and Tress MacNeille. Guest starring in the movie are Erin Brockovich, Minnie Driver, and Albert Brooks.
While the movie is sure to please, the companion website is just as much of a crowd pleaser. You can make your very own Simpsons avatar, take a tour of Springfield and play interactive games as well.
One of my favorite parts of the site was that your character gets to go along for the ride with Homer to different destinations of your choice in Springfield.
In each location, you get to meet characters that are commonly found in that place. I went to Moe's Tavern where the usual crowd was hanging out and to the Kwik-E-Mart.
If you click on a character, they are prompted to say a signature line from the show. The use of voice over on the website is just phenomenal.
If you'd like to have a Simpsons experience and create your own avatar, go to SimpsonsMovie.com and register for a free account.
