The Simpsons Movie Teaser Trailer
Our second story on the Simpsons movie is running today:
Producer James L. Brooks suggested to the studio that the surprise
teaser would be a better way of announcing the long-awaited theatrical
version of "The Simpsons" than using a conventional press announcement.
With just three weeks to assemble it, the studio worked under a veil of
secrecy with Brooks, "Simpsons" creator Matt Groening and writers Al
Jean and Mike Scully.
David Silverman, co-director of Pixar Animation Studios' "Monsters, Inc.," is directing the movie. He has also helmed numerous "Simpsons" episodes and was recently upped to the series' supervising director. The film is being produced in 2-D animation by 160 animators at Film Roman in Burbank.
