The Simpsons heading back to The Big Screen in 3D

No it isn’t a sequel to 2007’s blockbuster hit, but rather a four and a half minute anmated short which will air before Ice Age 4: Continental Drift….. oh and it is in 3D!

The short, entitled “The Longest Daycare”, was teased during the season finale, and looks to focus on the littlest Simpson, Maggie!

This might just persuade me to check out Ice Age 4 in the cinema, as Maggie has always been one of my favourite characters and her diminished role as the series has progressed has been frustrating, so it is great that this character is getting a breakout adventure, even if it is only 4 minutes.

In The Longest Daycare, Maggie is sent back to the Ayn Rand School for Tots, where her lone friend is a butterfly. Each baby is put through an airport security-style testing machine to measure their future and hers says ‘Nothing Special,’ so they put her in an area that’s not great.
