Simpsons Lego, Simpsons Noir, But No Simpsons Movie Sequel… Yet

Last Sunday’s new episode of The Simpsons had another Bill Plympton-animated couch gag. Good. Anything that keeps funding Plympton’s own projects.

Here it is, for the majority of you who missed it.

So I don’t think most folk – or at least most Bleeding Cool readers – watch The Simpsons any more. Doesn’t mean we don’t hold it close to our hearts.

And like all these things we’re so nostalgic about, there’s an odd appeal to seeing it rendered in Lego.

As reported in The Wall Street Journal, Fox and Lego have been negotiating a deal that will see Springfield’s first family reduced to minifig scale, their four-fingered mitts most likely replaced with those odd little claw things. Adorable.

Well, I’m glad they’re planning it – and surprised that there haven’t been any Simpsons sets submitted to Cuusoo, Lego’s user-initiated product development scheme. Where’s your imagination, people? They’re yellow already. Is it really that much of a leap to make?

Matt Groening and David Silverman recently talked at UCLA’s annual entertainment symposium and while they haven’t recounted anything else from the one-hour talk, THR did report back that if we do ever get a sequel to The Simpsons Movie, it won’t be any time soon.

“It took us four years [to make] and it killed us,” Groening said… “Maybe another 10, 15 years” Silverman added.

There’s something wrong somewhere in the infrastructure when a 87 minute movie takes as long to produce as 80-some 20 minute-plus episodes, particularly when this results in “the loss of life.”

I’m not sure when The Simpsons‘ days on Fox will finally be over, but I’m reckoning it will most likely be well within that 10 to 15 year bracket. I’m not wishing the show dead but, really – how long can it possibly go on for?
