Are cartoons too violent for children? Most people would say, ‘No, of course not; what kind of stupid question is that?’ But one woman says ‘yes’... Marge Simpson.— Brockman
This final theatrical trailer came out around June 2007.
The trailer starts with a few clips and a voiceover.
Twentieth Century Fox presents... the greatest Simpsons family adventure of all time.
Ralph stands inside the zero of the 20th Century Fox logo, singing
Da-da-da-da! along with the music.
Homer and Bart are fishing.
Dad, Bart moans,
it's not fair to use a bug-zapper to catch the fish.
Homer drops the bug-zapper into the lake; it electrifies the water, and all the fish float to the top, dead.
I think I have a nibble, Homer rejoices. He reaches in to take a fish, but is shocked by it.
On July twenty-seventh, begins the voiceover as we cut to the White House.
The President's aide speaks to the man in charge.
President Schwarzeneggar, he starts.
That is me, replies Arnie (though he looks more like Rainier Wolfcastle).
Springfield has reached crisis levels, the aide warns.
I've narrowed your choices down to five unthinkable options.
I was elected to lead, not to read.
The voiceover carries on.
When disaster threatens our world...
The Simpsons are inside a wooden cabin, watching teleivison.
They're going to destroy Springfield! Marge cries.
One family will show everyone what they're made of.
Bart skateboards naked but falls off, flying into the window of a diner where Flanders is eating. Next, Bart is wearing a T-shirt covering his body.
This is the worst day of my life, he whines.
Homer consoles him:
The worst day of your life so far.
At the town hall.
I declare a state of emergency! Quimby announces.
Dad, do something! Lisa cries as she runs into the main bedroom.
In church, Homer flicks through a bible.
This book doesn't have any answers!
What?! questions Moe, angrily.
Tell us! entreats Barney.
Running out, the voiceover finishes.
Homer collapses amongst some rubble.
Did I save the day? he asks wearily.
Actually, you doomed us all, Bart responds.
Several clips follow to reach a climax, after which we see Marge at home, gazing upward.
How did the pig tracks get on the ceiling? she wonders.
We then see Homer holding Plopper above his head, upside down. Homer sings,
Spider-Pig, Spider-Pig, does whatever a Spider-Pig does.
The film logo zooms onto screen.
The Simpsons Movie, the narrator announces.
Back to Homer and Plopper.
Look out, he is Spider-Pig!
