The Simpsons - Briefly Turning to the Box Office: Simpsons: The Movie DVD Date, Extras

DVD Debut one week before Christmas

Posted by David Lambert
Here at TVShowsOnDVD, we rarely turn our attention to anything in the box office, even when it's related to a TV show, no matter how popular. Still, every once in a while we DO bend the rules about that, and this is one of those times! Our friends in the industry have passed along info to us about The Simpsons Movie on DVD; a jewel we just cannot resist. We think we're the first ones with these details, so we want reward all the Simpsons fans among our readers with the scoop on this:
    Homer accidentally causes an environmental catastrophe which could doom Springfield forever. Homer now must save the city and rescue his family. Springfield's usual characters and new favorites all turn up in the first ever movie length version of the hit TV show, 18 years in the making.
The 87-minute big-screen feature will arrive home in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions (get the Widescreen) on December 18th. Besides the film itself, it's loaded with these extras, all for $29.98 SRP:
  • Animators commentary: David Silverman, Mike B. Anderson, Steven Dean Moore, Rich Moore.
  • Producers Commentary: James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, Richard Sakai, Al Jean, Mike Scully, David Silverman, Dan Castellaneta, Yeardley Smith
  • Deleted Scenes:
    • Levels
    • Springfield News
    • DMV
    • Sausage Truck
    • Animals Painting
  • Promos:
    • Jay Leno Promo
    • American Idol Promo
    • American Idol Cold Open
    • Lobby Promo
    • THX Spoof
Audio is going to be English Dolby Surround 5.1 and also English DTS 5.1 ES, plus there will be Spanish and French soundtracks in Dolby Surround. Subtitles are English and Spanish, and the film is rated PG-13.

Our thanks to our friends in the industry who provided this to us; they did so on condition of anonymity. They do not have box art for this DVD release, nor have they yet received any information about a potential Blu-ray Disc hi-definition release of the film. We expect these to come later on. Please bear in mind that this info does NOT come from a public announcement, and is therefore subject to change.
