I got the above poster free with the purchase of a Simpson's comic. Woohoo!

What...like the pure white and slimmer case against the multi-disc colored cases of the season sets isn't enough!?

I'm not sure I would say I "despised" the pig...I just think it's been taken way out of context for what was basically, something non-original and a riff on something else that's big in the population's consciousness at this time. And them picking up on it and now going into overkill (Simpsons of long ago would have left it at that and it would have been a landmark event) by having him on the cover, in the intro to the new series...and he'll keep "plopping" back now and then. Can you milk a pig? They sure are trying...

Well yes, there's that, but from early rumors; the DVD's box will blend in with the season sets, only, like you said, it will be skinnier and probably white. That's why I would prefer Plopper on the spine, to make it unique and stand out more. :)

That's fast, thanks, K3vin!

Interesting screen grabs, they confirm that alternate American Idol opening the DVD will have -- which I'm not really looking forward to, and I bet Vi isn't either. The fourth pic, I don't remember that guy, does anyone else? I like the general look of the menus, very spiffy.

The character in the fourth pic is placed in the deleted scenes menu so naturally, he's a character cut from the final film.

I will probably pick this up.

It's the extras that have hooked me, but I sure can see a two-disc coming right around the corner.

Yes, me too. Yup, I've lost hope. :(

About the fourth pic... oh, I didn't even notice it was for the deleted scenes. Makes sense now.

This is actually from last summer but thought you guys might like this. The cool thing is they talk much more to the voice cast here;





Check out Matt's shirt!! :P :roll:

Also, this was linked to on Animation Nation:

Stephen Hawking on The Simpsons!!! :) (as in: talking about them in an interview)

The man in the fourth picture is Russ Cargill.
But they change his face and his new face is the one we can see in the movie.

Revised artwork ... hmm, they barely changed it; just the lost of the color and Plopper really. Glad he's still on the spine, though!

Good...glad they saw the sense in not going overboard on the pig.

See, the hoo-hah over the silly thing has died down anyway...it was just a random gag in one feature film. Putting him on the spine works, but going nuts on the front cover was pretty desperate.

Even if it was just a sticker? ;)

Yeah, I know, even though I do love Plopper, it did seem a bit much... Kinda hoped they would've included the whole family, though.
