What Is The Simpson Movie About?
The Simpson Movie just like the sitcom follows the tales of the Simpsons family. This time main protagonist and father of the Simpsons family, Homer Simpson, dumps his new Pig’s waste which filled up a silo in just 2 days. By doing this, Homer unknowingly pollutes the lake in Springfield which causes the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to lockdown the town under a giant glass dome. After several attempts, Homer along with his family escapes but they return to Springfield to prevent the town’s demolition by the evil Cargill.
In an attempt to promote The Simpsons Movie, many 7-Eleven stores in North America temporarily changed their names to “Kwik-E-Marts,” after the convenience store that the Simpsons regularly shop at. In the movie, there were over 300 characters who made cameo appearances. The Simpsons Movie had quite a few big-name actors whose scenes ended up cut in the final movie. The movie features cameo roles from famous names such as Erin Brockovich, Minnie Driver, Isla Fisher, and Edward Norton. American actor Kelsey Grammer also reprised his role as Sideshow Bob. However, the appearances by Erin Brockovich and Isla Fisher themselves were recorded, but ultimately never made the final cut.
