*respeco a la comic-con a parte del capitulo que dirige guillermo del toro y que tambien habrá un crossover con futurama (además del de family guy)
It may be hard to believe, but "The Simpsons" is going into it's 25th year on the air. To celebrate, the creator, producers and writers arrived at Comic-Con 2013 to have a good time with the fans.
The panel starts with a sneak peak at the 2013 "Treehouse of Horror" intro, directed by Guillermo Del Toro, which includes homages to nearly any thriller or horror movie or book you could think of. Everything from zombies, to Stephen King, to even Cthulhu gets a little tribute. There's even a moment of Lisa in "Alice in Wonderland" and an appearance by "Futurama's" Hypnotoad.
The Hypnotoad was also used as an introduction to announce a full crossover happening between "The Simpsons" and Futurama. The casts will record the episode in August and it will be used as either the season 25 finale of season 26 premiere of "The Simpsons." The crossover was alluded to in the "Futurama" panel that preceded "The Simpsons.".
Additionally, a slew of guest stars were announced for season 25. Among the names that will appear in Springfield ate Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Elizabeth Moss, Stan Lee and Rachel Maddow. Sounds like a lot of exciting things are on tap for the upcoming season.
Next, creator Matt Groening introduces musical group "We Put the Spring in Springfield," a "Simpsons" cover band. That's right, they performed a medley of songs that have appeared in the show, from the Mr. Plot jingle to the Flaming Moe's theme.
The second clip is from the episode guest-starring Moss. Homer helps her character delver a baby in an elevator. She names the baby Homer Jr. in tribute, which Marge isn't too excited about.
Groening and executive producer Al Jean also talked about the "Simpsons: Tapped Out" game. They say the game's script is written by the writer's on the show and will continue to work hand-in-hand with episodes of the series.
When asked about the :South Park episode "The Simpsons Did It First," Jean says they love the episode and are now finding fans who are saying the same thing about "Under the Dome," as a huge glass dome was over Springfield was a plot point in "The Simpsons Movie."
The panel wraps with another performance by "We Put the Spring in Springfield."
With The Simpsons entering their 25th year on the air, creator Matt Groening, executive producer Al Jean, supervising director Mike Anderson, consulting producer David Silverman and actor Tress MacNeille sat in on the panel in front of a packed auditorium.
First up was a special opening sequence directed by Guillermo del Toro, which packed in virtually every horror movie character or scenario in a few minutes along with parodies of several of del Toro's own films. Set you DVR now, since it'll take many viewings to try catching all the jokes.
On the heels of finding out that the Simpsons will appear on Family Guy, the big announcement today is that there will be a Futurama crossover episode of The Simpsons, which was welcome news to attendees. That episode of The Simpsons will record next month and either air as the Season 25 finale next May or the Season 26 premiere fall 2014. Other guest stars for the upcoming season will include Kristen Wiig, Zach Galifianakis, Elisabeth Moss, Stan Lee and Harlan Ellison.
In other news, Groening said that there would also be more crossover between the show and The Simpsons: Tapped Out, while Jean teased a "Holidays of Future Passed" sequel episode where Homer dies so many times he eventually appears as a hologram, and Maggie still doesn't talk. He also mentioned that a "very musical episode" is in the works but couldn't offer any more details yet.
As far as another Simpsons Movie is concerned, Jean said there was "nothing imminent", with Groening saying that everyone's still recovering from pulling double duty for four years on the first one.
A second clip was played from an episode where a mom voiced by Elisabeth Moss names her son Homer Jr., with the footage showing Homer playing with "HJ" and even dreaming of him while bouncing Maggie on his knee (Maggie dreams of Flanders bouncing her on his knee).
In addition to audience questions there were a couple musical numbers. Four performers came out on stage to sing a medley of songs from the show in the middle of the panel and to close things out at the end.
