For many diehard fans of the classic seasons of The Simpsons, the big screen version of Springfield's favourite family was a major event and 12 years since its release, the general consensus is that it's still very good.

Granted, it's not even close to matching the episodes that aired the show's golden years, but the film is definitely miles better than some of the recent seasons.

Truth be told, we still have some love for President McBain - "I was elected to lead, not to read" - while Tom Hanks' cameo and the strained relationship between Marge and Homer still really hold up.

Moving the Simpson family to Alaska, Lisa's relationship with Colin, and Bart cozying up to Ned Flanders were massive missteps that still gripe with hardcore fans but all things considered, it's still a good watch.

However, after making a bajillion at the box-office, it's clear that the appetite for The Simpsons is still there and Fox's recent merger with Disney could see another big screen adaptation of Springfield's finest.

During a recent chat at Comic-Con, Matt Groening was very optimistic that The Simpsons Movie will get a sequel: “No doubt there will be another Simpsons movie one of these days. I think Disney wants something for its money," he said.

In the panel discussion, the creator of Futurama and Disenchantment also said that The Simpsons Movie almost killed the show because the staff of animators were stretched to the brink.

“This is a true answer. 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.”

While we're not completely against the idea of another Simpsons movie, they really do need to get the script right. Also, just a suggestion, but hanging the main plot around one of the supporting characters like Moe or Krusty would be a really clever idea.

Krusty in Hollywood, perhaps?

Who wouldn't want to see a film about seedy dealing like this?
