The Simpsons, a major hit animated television show, is set to appear in movie theatres. It has been confirmed that The Simpsons Movie will appear in theatres July 27, 2007.

The Simpsons has been on television for 17 seasons and FOX confirms that it will run at least two more seasons. The show is currently contracted through FOX until 2008 and is the longest running television show on prime-time in the United States. An estimated over nine million people watch the show every Sunday night, but that number is down from earlier peak viewer numbers.

Moviegoers that go to see Ice Age: The Meltdown will get to see a 25-second 'teaser' trailer of the upcoming movie.

The Simpsons first began on the The Tracey Ullman Show in 1987 and in 1989 they started their 30-minute series on FOX.
