Simpsons sequel talk

09.12.2007
Apparently there are no plans for a SIMPSONS sequel. Apparently. The film is the sixth biggest grossing of the year, it's hard to see that the money men won't want to crack at least two more of these babies out. Still, executive producer Al Jean says that: “We would only do a sequel if we believed it was a movie that had to be made, just like we did with the first one... We wouldn’t want to do it just because the first one was successful, or because we wanted to make money off of a movie. We’d only do it if we had a script that we thought was great [and] there’s no script at this point.”

If this is true then it's great. Whether it is or not? I don't know. I'm in support of sequels, but I hate it when studios take something good and churn out something bad just to make a little scratch (a la MORTAL KOMBAT ANNIHILATION). Still, I loved SIMPSONS and I'd totally welcome another. What about you guys?
Extra Tidbit: On September 23rd, when the 19th Season premieres, apparently the intro will feature Bart writing "I will not wait 20 years to make another movie" on the blackboard.

Definitely

I loved the movie. It was one of the greatest theater experiences I've ever had. Of course it could have been better, but overall it was awesome. I'm absolutely FOR a sequel.

I am shocked by people saying this was a letdown. It is hard to make a good movie, period. To make a good movie from a tv show that has done pretty much every storyline possible, I thought the movie was great. I laughed a lot and the audience did too.

Meh

The first movie was a real letdown. I can't see a second being any different.

There should be a sequel, if they get the original and best writer's back like the first movie. I'd love a Treehouse of Horror movie.

BTW, another tidbit about the upcoming season, apparently Homer's pig who's fate was left in question when he basically disappears from the story of the movie halfway through, will appear. Sweet.

It's true

This movie was awesome, but the creators are right. It will only be made if it needs to be. That's exactly what Trey Parker and Matt Stone say when being questioned about a second SP movie. They gotta have a decent storyline, and all around awesome writing for it to work. I'm perfectly fine with just one movie for each though.

Sequel

I enjoyed the Simpsons Movie and would welcome a sequel. I wouldn't be surprised if they waited to bring it out after the TV series ended.

Ummmmm....

I think everyone is forgetting the fact that this movie was absolutely horrendously bad. I'd rather get another Deuce Bigalow sequel than another awful Simpsons movie.

While the movie was Springfield populous lite (Burns actually had a few good appearances, especially during the end credits) I thought it was, at the very least, exactly what a Simpsons movie should be. I think there is room for a sequel (the movie, after all, was just an extended episode). But, if it took this long for the right script to come along, what are the chances of lightning striking twice? If it did, I think it would make back at least a good bit of what it did here, but I'm not sure

But, if it took this long for the right script to come along, what are the chances of lightning striking twice? If it did, I think it would make back at least a good bit of what it did here, but I'm not sure if it would do as well, because unlike, say, Bourne or Spider-Man, people knew the characters and how they acted on a small screen already. If they were underwhelmed by this movie, then the chances of coming back for more would be much slimmer. And they couldn't do the chastising television-to-big screen joke that they did at the beginning of this one.

It wasn't just Burns that was missing from the movie--it was every supporting character. Homer and Bart, Homer and Bart. It was worth a chuckle or two, but it was too much like the later seasons-Batting avg @ 250. And would it have killed them to make the President Ranier Wolfcastle (since he does represent Schwarzenegger anyways.)SOS

SURE...

I would have less of a problem with more movies if the show was over. I don't think the show will go one much longer (even though it could). If another one happens, they need to get Conan involved. I mean, come on.

SEQUELISH SIMPSONS

In this case, nobody really cares if there's a sequel or not. The Simpsons will always be on TV for people to see, so a sequel would be fun but not something people would crave like Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 or something. Hehe...

No need...

The Simpsons guys dont need to do another movie, i loved The Simpsons Movie thought it was amazing and one of my fav. of hte year...i dont want a sequel just because they could make one.

Unless it was an awesome script and the Simpsons guys liked it, i dont need one.

The thing about a movie is that writers et al that have left are more willing to come back than they would be to do a 24 episode season.

Just look at the writing credits on the movie...

Besides, they need a Sideshow Bob movie... Stepping on a rake for 2 hours=GOLD!!!

The Simpsons movie was great, but lets leave it at that. Concentrate on the show and make it funny again.
