Season 34 of The Simpsons Parody ‘It’, ‘Eileen’ and ‘Death Note’ and Guest Feature Melissa McCarthy

Krusty the Clown as Pennywise, Stephen King’s evil character from the movie It, has become a popular tattoo image. Now, you will become part of the “The Simpsons” canon. One of two episodes of this fall’s “Treehouse of Horror” will be a complete parody of “It,” “The Simpsons” executive producer Matt Salman revealed Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con.

As mentioned earlier, The Simpsons will air a double dose of “Treehouse of Horror” episodes in the upcoming 34th season. This is the first time in the show’s history that there have been two episodes marked “Treehouse” on a Halloween. The first episode will take the traditional form of three different excerpts, but the “It” simulation will be the first time Treehouse has focused on one story for a full half hour.

“We have never done a single fairy tale, bloody, scary, dark, told over the twenty minutes and forty seconds that is an episode,” Salman said. diverse. “I think fans will be really excited. Sure, tattoos are already in Krusty as Pennywise. So we’re just writing toward tattoos right now. You want as many tattoo moments in your rings as you can.”

As for the three-story regular Treehouse of Horror, one of the parts this year will be a grit about the popular animated series Death Note. An entirely different studio is dealing with animation, with The Simpsons turning into a full-fledged anime, which Salman described as “incredibly authentic The Simpsons” anime. So I really think people would freak out about that. We don’t try to handle every anime, It’s an incredibly rich and diverse genre within itself. We don’t try to do 20 shows and drift them all in six minutes. It’s just one lovable thing, the “Death Note” show.

Salman said the other parts are confidential, but hints that in “one of them, we’re breaking a rule that we haven’t broken before. I’ll say that’s a rule we’ve never broken. I’m 100% sure we’ve never broken it.” (Last year’s “Tree House of Horrors” parodied “Parasite,” “The Ring,” “Tik Tok,” and “Bambi.”)

Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch, a big fan of “The Simpsons,” has been chosen to moderate this year’s Comic-Con panel. “I am excited about his vitality,” Salman said a few days before the session.

For the “Simpsons” fall 2022 guests, Salman focused on one: Melissa McCarthy, who plays Homer’s rival in love with Grandfather in the “Step Brothers” scenario.

“We like it a lot and it’s a great portion of meat and juicy,” Salman said. “And it’s really funny. To have a big comedian movie star in their prime, it’s great.”

Fans hoping for a new movie trailer, video game trailer, or DVD trailer would have been disappointed. “These movies are not fun,” Salman said. “The show is fun. The movies are tough. The show is hard too, but the movie requires a level of audience involvement in the stakes, the emotion, the character, the comedy. It’s relentless. It kind of stops being kind of fun, the silly thing that The Simpsons is. It doesn’t mean that That we didn’t do it once and we can’t do it again. It’s just another kettle full of fish.”

Among the upcoming conceptual episodes: In the season premiere, Homer gets involved in online conspiracy sets. In another movie, Krusty the Clown becomes a daytime host much like Ellen DeGeneres, and learns that being a cheerful host is always tough. “It is much more difficult to do a beautiful TV show than to do a bad one,” Salman said.

The Simpsons emerges from a busy year that included the show’s first use of ASL and its first deaf cast; The first time the four main creative roles directing the animation in the episode “The Simpsons” were women; Prestigious two-part TV parody of “A Serious Flanders” and more.

“I am proud of our pursuit of innovation and freshness and not just doing the same old thing over and over,” Salman said. “It’s our main creative goal.”

Meanwhile, despite no such announcements at Comic-Con, Salman said he’d like to see Disney+ turn “The Simpsons” into a streaming world. “We can do like six episodes whatever,” he said. “Whatever character can go on in a six-episode plot, or shorts or a movie about a side character. I like to do all those kinds of creative and funny things. But right now, thinking about new episodes for the mid-’70s takes a lot of work.”

“It’s the big ‘Simpsons’ world out there. And there are so many people and so many directions we can go in.” “It’s a crazy canvas for sure. Right now, our main goal is, let’s make every episode special and make every episode epic. Instead of announcing a movie, make each episode its own little movie in terms of emotion, concept, and thought. If not for every episode. A movie-level poster, don’t do it as an episode.”

At the session, Hirsch asked the writers how The Simpsons continues to predict the future, his interpretation being that the show “imagines the dumbest future possible.” Executive producer Al Jane notes that now that Donald Trump becomes president – as predicted by the show – the show plans only to predict good things from now on. Jean also revealed that in that 2000 episode, Johnny Depp was originally president, not Trump. “And then Trump was going to marry Amber Heard,” Jean said sarcastically.

Jane also revealed that The Simpsons is producing an upcoming Disney+ short film about Disney princes.
