I too can't wait to see it. But I'm curious why they waited so long to do a Simpsons movie, when the show is a good 3 or 4 years past it's prime? Simpsons has gotten buried among other shows in recent years, and doesn't have the same must see appeal that it used to. Of course I still want to see the movie though.

This was August of last year, and they were working on the episode JABF04 which aired 2 weeks ago. The episode involved Bart getting his drivers license, saving the town from burning down, and dating a girl voiced by Natalie Portman. It takes 6 months to do one episode of The Simpsons. When I was there, the episode was complete, they were doing cuts to it and adding others. Once it is complete, they send the film off to Korea to add the color to it. So I got to watch it in its uncolored version.
People are going to see the movie anyways but I find their trailer is very lacking. It's just a bunch of random shots, I wish they really tried to show what the story was about. By the way that studio is right next to Burbank Airport.
