If you can’t get enough of “The Simpsons” on the big screen but can’t afford the tickets to Universal Studios (or all that whiplash), then Matt Groening has some good news for you.
If you want to see “The Simpsons” on the big screen once more, it’ll only cost you a movie ticket and the slight inconvenience of having to sit through the next Ice Age movie. Actually, you don’t even have to stay for Ice Age if you don’t want! Let me explain…
Following in the footsteps of animation giants Pixar, who are known for the Oscar-worthy short films that precede all their Oscar-winning feature length films, Fox is jumping on the bandwagon to merge two of their most profitable properties – “The Simpsons” and Ice Age franchise. To that end, they will be screening the short “The Longest Daycare” before every showing of Ice Age: Continental Drift. The short will focus on Maggie Simpson, the same little dickens who, at the end of The Simpsons: The Movie, posed the omnipresent question, “Sequel?” Well, not yet, it seems, but this short could be a (baby) step in the right direction.
Check out the teaser for “The Longest Daycare” below, followed by the trailer for Ice Age: Continental Drift to decide if you’d like to stick around and get your money’s worth…
