Um... do you have a source on this or did you hear it from your father's uncle's cousin's barber's former roommate?

Al Jean on Cinescape, Monday:

"So while it sounds as though a SIMPSONS film will happen eventually, fans of the show might have to content themselves with the regular episodes of the program for the time being."

Sounds like someone who has a definite release date planned, doesn't it?

Why? Movies based on TV shows are always great! There's Star Trek, and... um... Star Trek II... and...

Why do you want a movie based on a sitcom? Did you ever think there'd be a Seinfeld movie? Or a Drew Carey movie? The Simpsons is a sitcom first and an animation second. There's no way it could work. They can't even seem to come up with a worthwhile 20 minute plot these days, let alone a 100 minute one.

Now, a Futurama movie, that could work...

Well, yeah, Futurama has nearly limitless possibilities, as the show is based on (mis)adventures in the largely-unknown (and largely-artistically-defineable) expanse of space.  There is so much more depth that could be explored about any of the worlds already visited in the series.  The Simpsons has all but exhausted the feasable plots lying in and around Springfield.

I want a Simpsons movie, I like to think it will turn out like the golden era of The Simpsons, seasons 2-8. I doubt it will get done until after the TV series ends, which at the moment, doesn't look soon.

From the (very) recent BBC interview with Matt:

 
Quote
Matt Groening:
MG: The idea of doing of a Simpsons movie is quite daunting to us because we basically pack a feature length movie's worth of incident and jokes and side gags into a single half hour episode of the show so how do you pad it out to an hour and a half?

That's a question that, creatively, has been something we've been struggling with for a number of years now.

Just two reasons. How do you do it? How do you expand and remain true to the show?

And the second thing is what's the artistic reason for doing it? Is there something we can do on the big screen that we don't do on TV?

The bags of money that have been dangled in front of our faces are very enticing, but again coming back to the creative thing, we haven't figured out the exact way to do pursue this.

However, we are starting to talk about it seriously and I imagine there will be a Simpsons movie sooner rather than later.

I dont like the idea. The simpsons should never end... It should just fizzle out...

I'm not sure if The Simpsons would work as well though as SP went further than TV would permit, typical Simpsons viewers might not like that so it would just be like an extended episode rather than something breaking new ground for the show.

One good thing about a Simpsons movie is that they'll probably have a big budget to play with. Although money doesn't make a good movie, it helps. If the writing is good then they'll be able to do something cool and new to go with it. For example "Homer 3", if they do something different and fresh while using their large amount of loot, it could be pretty damn cool.
