FIRST LOOK: Simpsons LEGO episode

April 21st, 2014 by Marc Comments

With The Simpsons LEGO sets hitting shelves on May 1st it’s not surprising that the long-talked about LEGO episode wouldn’t be far away… May 4th in fact.

And, thanks to EW, here’s the first two images from it…

Co-executive producer Brian Kelley and executive producer Matt Selman spoke with EW about the episode:  “We thought it was cool to start off in the world of Lego and have all the characters think that this was their normal life. Then through a series of bizarre flashbacks, Homer starts to suspect that the Lego world isn’t where he belongs. So he starts tearing away at the fabric of what he thinks is reality, which is never a great idea. At the end of the day, he has to choose between the world of plastic and the world of meat.”

So, will you be tuning in on May 4th? Let us know your thoughts in the usual ways…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
