The Simpsons is on to its 30th season, with another two series confirmed by Fox and no signs of it being cancelled.

So what else do you expect than another big screen jaunt?

Creator Matt Groening confirmed that another Simpsons Movie will be made, following the critical and box office success of the shows first big screen outing in 2007.

Speaking at Comic-Con, Groening discussed Disneys acquisition of 20th Century Fox, and reckons that the new owners will be commissioning another Simpsons film soon.

The 65-year-old said: No doubt there will be another Simpsons movie one of these days. I think Disney wants something for its money.

The Simpsons Movie saw Springfield encased in a plastic dome after Homer accidentally caused a pollution crisis by dumping a silo of his pet Spider-Pigs poo in Lake Springfield.

The film featured cartoon cameos from Green Day (who were killed off in the opening minutes) and Tom Hanks, and went on to receive critical acclaim from fans and reviewers.

The Simpsons movie was also a smash at the box office, becoming the eighth highest-grossing film of 2017 after raking in $527 million (£422 million) worldwide.
