While there is no official release date or time-frame, The Simpsons is the longest-running cartoon TV show in history and Disney's recent acquisition of 20th Century Fox will likely prompt the studio to try and make the most of it.
News of a sequel has been a long time coming with rumours first swirling in 2018 when the Wall Street Journal reported that a follow up to the hit first flick (which remains the eighth-highest-grossing film worldwide) was in the works.
The first film, which was released in 2007 saw the dysfunctional family face a threat like never before when Springfield became victim to a giant glass dome.
It was no easy feat bringing the TV classic to theatres as Groening revealed it almost destroyed the show.
"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 Simpsons is now gearing up for its 31st season (!!!) and currently airs on FOX8.
