Matt Groening confirms there will be a sequel to The Simpsons Movie 'one of these days'

"The first Simpsons Movie almost killed us."

Matt Groening has confirmed that there will be another The Simpsons Movie at some point because why not, may as well continue to capitalise on all of this hype until they can't no more.

The show's creator said that although the team weren't at all prepared to make the first film back in 2007, he wouldn't be surprised if they end up making another.

And tbh, neither would we.

NME reports that Groening told this year's Comic-Con that Disney would very much be into the idea of making some more money in the form of a sequel to the first film.

"No doubt there will be another Simpsons movie one of these days," he said. "I think Disney wants something for its money.”

“This is a true answer. The first Simpsons Movie almost killed us.

 “We didn’t have a B-team waiting to do The Simpsons Movie, so the same people who wrote, animated, voiced and did the music for The Simpsons TV show also did the movie.

“That was in 2007. We’re almost recovered, almost.”

The first The Simpsons film saw the inhabitants of Springfield trapped inside a giant glass dome that also housed a Spider Pig and a plot that was eerily similar to a popular Stephen King novel.

It was the eighth highest grossing movie of the year making $527 million worldwide. It was also he highest-ever grossing film based on an animated television series.

While we have no word yet as to when the aforementioned sequel to the movie will be, it's not looking like it'll be any time soon.
