‘Simpsons’ Back on the Big Screen: ‘Ice Age 4’ Debuts 3D Short


MaggieThe Simpsons are going to the movies! Again. Well, one of them is. Here’s a hint: she has shot a multi-billionaire, several Mafiosos and Albert Brooks.

Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D is coming to theaters July 13. Along with it, fans will be treated to the 3D animated short “The Longest Daycare,” featuring young Maggie Simpson in what appears to be a prison movie spoof of some kind. This will mark the Springfield family’s first foray to the big screen since their feature film in 2007.

The news is somewhat surprising, considering the 2011 chatter about the show potentially coming to an end. Although The Simpsons is locked in for two more seasons, the fate of the long-running Fox comedy is shakier than it has ever been. Could Maggie’s partnership with Manny, Sid and Diego represent a resurgence in Simpsonian popularity?

Check out the clip below to get excited over “The Longest Daycare.”

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
