The Simpsons Movie

The Simpsons Movie is a feature-length cinematic release from our favourite family, The Simpsons. Its official release date was Friday July 27, 2007 but it opened in the U.K. two days earlier.

We opened this section a few weeks prior to the film's release and have been stuffing it with information since. There are detailed descriptions of the trailers and pre-release clips, the full script, credits, deleted scenes, posters and more!

Movie logos

The original logo for the movie was some simple yellow text, in the normal Simpsons font, on a purple background. This was used in the first teaser.

When the first movie clips rolled around, the logo had been changed to a different version with MOVIE in bold capital letters and a donut for the 'O'. The teasers also featured a black and white 'techinal drawing' version where Homer complains about the color fading. Another version - used on various posters, promos, and as seen in the design for this page above - has Homer's arm reaching for the donut.

A modified version of the above was used for the final trailers. This one is in 3D.
