Simpsons Movie & Clerks II

So, that teaser for The Simpsons Movie is now online. I've downloaded it. My thoughts? It actually reminds me a lot of the teaser for South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut from way back in December 1998. Same narrator doing a very dramatic reading...same variation on the joke...now, if The Simpsons Movie can be as good as South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, then we really have a movie to look forward to!

And actually, we've got some more information about the behind-the-scenes of The Simpsons Movie today. They're just about finished storyboarding. The script was written over the past two years in absolute secrecy. The script was co-written by Simpsons creator Matt Groening, Simpsons executive producer (and legendary director) James L. Brooks, and pretty much the entire current writing staff of the show. The director is David Silverman, who is the supervising director of the show, and he was also one of the co-directors of the Pixar classic Monsters, Inc..

In addition to the entire voice cast of the show, they also have signed on Albert Brooks, Minnie Driver, and the real Erin Brockovich.

They're still on track for that July 2007 release!

And, if you're a big Kevin Smith fan like me, then you'll want to swing by The Official Clerks II Website to check out the new Internet exclusive trailer!

My thoughs on the new trailer? I love that new angry version of the Clerks: The Animated Series theme. And I now have a new favourite Randall line:

"There was only one return, and it wasn't of the King, it was of the Jedi!"
