Lego Dimensions – The Simpsons Confirmed Sets

Lego Dimensions, a new Lego video game, comes out at the end of September and The Simpsons is represented in the game with three different sets and a level in the starter pack.

Lego Dimensions features collectible real life sets that can be used in the game to get new content, including characters, vehicles and levels. Each set has to be bought separately from the base game, which has some content in already.

The three sets include one level pack and two fun packs. The level pack includes Homer Simpson and the two fun packs have Bart Simpson and Krusty the Clown.

The Simpsons will have a level in the starter pack where Lord Business from The Lego Movie teams up with The Joker from DC Comics to take over Springfield. No The Simpsons characters are playable in this level without the expansion sets.

It is unconfirmed at the moment whether any more The Simpsons sets will be released but a character list that had blurred characters has one blur resembling Maggie Simpson. So it is possible that she will become playable in a later set.

Season 27 News: Bart’s new teacher has been announced!

A new teacher has been announced for Bart after the former teacher, Mrs. Krabappel, was retired after the death of Marcia Wallace.

Executive producer Al Jean says “She’s more forgiving than Mrs. Krabappel was of Bart. She pays special attention to him.”

Seymour Skinner also has an interest in her. Al Jean notes “We thought it’d be interesting if both Bart and Skinner have a crush on the same woman. She feels Skinner is a wounded soul that she wants to take care of. She is a vet like Skinner, and that’s his attraction.”

Jean also adds that it’s possible she can return in future episodes. “We have a situation where Bart doesn’t have a regular teacher,” referencing Mrs. Krabappel’s death, “so she may or may not come back. [Sofia] was really funny and we were glad to have her, and as she said, ‘I’m just 100 yards away on the Fox lot.’” 

The episode she’ll appear in, titled “Teenage Mutant Milk-fed Hurdles” will air in the middle of season 27.

Vergara also voiced characters in two other Fox animated series: Family Guy and The Cleveland Show.
