The Simpsons Are Returning To The Big Screen THIS SUMMER!

No, Matt Groening isn’t surprising us with a sequel to The Simpsons Movie, but he did make a brand new short film that will hit theaters with Ice Age: Continental Drift this summer.

The Longest Daycare is a four-and-a-half minute 3D short that stars one of the most underrated members of the famous family — Maggie Simpson!

Producer Al Jean says they decided to make the short because “we appreciate how much people have stayed with the show and watched it for 25 years.”

With such wonderfully written characters and episodes, it’s hard NOT to keep watching!

We can’t wait to watch the short when it premieres in theaters on July 13, but until then, we’ll have to settle for a teaser (above) that aired with the season 23 finale.
