12:12 – David Silverman talks about evolving with technology.
“We’ve always had a great ability to go many places. We’re still hand drawing. Because we’re doing computer painting we can make even more beautiful settings…- David Silverman @tubatron#TheSimpsons#SDCC
“One I thought was fantastic was Anne Hathaway. She did all her own singing. She is a real life Disney princess in the best sense of the word.” – @AlJean on favorite guest star #TheSimpsons#SDCC#SDCC2018
When asked about an ideal ending for the #Simpsons, Al Jean said ideally they’d want to go back to the Christmas pageant from the 1st ep. But “now that I’ve said it, it won’t happen.” #SDCCpic.twitter.com/EYiALFXxjF
The San Diego Comic-Con 2018 started last Thursday and today will take place most of the panels of FOX’s shows, including The Simpsons. The panel will take place between 12pm and 12:45pm (San Diego time).
We’ll do some kind of “live report” of the panel in a post that will be created shortly after it starts, collecting info from lots of sources. Minutes after the panel ends, a post that will have the highlights of the event will be published.
The Simpsons’ team looks ahead to their 30th(!) season with creator Matt Groening, executive producer Al Jean, legendary director David Silverman, actress Tress MacNeille, and moderator Johnathan Fernandez. Warning: There will be prizes!
In “My Way or the Highway to Heaven”, he will voice himself in Heaven, a reference to his car accident and coma in 2014, when after waking up he said God told him “Your room ain’t ready. I still got something for you to do”. In”Baby You Can’t Drive My Car” he will voice a tow truck driver, who drives past Homer and Marge.
