The Simpsons Movie is a 2007 American animated comedy film based on the popular long-running Fox animated television series The Simpsons (1989â€“present). The film was directed by David Silverman, and stars the regular television cast of Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Harry Shearer, Tress MacNeille, Pamela Hayden, Russi Taylor, and Albert Brooks. The film follows Homer Simpson, who irresponsibly pollutes the lake in Springfield after the town has cleaned it up, causing the Environmental Protection Agency to imprison the town under a giant dome. After he and his family narrowly manage to escape, they ultimately abandon Homer for his selfishness and return to Springfield to prevent the townâ€™s destruction by Russ Cargill, head of the EPA. Soon after his family leaves, Homer works to redeem his folly by returning to Springfield himself to help save the town and its citizens.
Although previous attempts to create a Simpsons film had been made, they all failed due to the lack of a script of appropriate length and production crew members. Eventually in 2001, producers James L. Brooks, Matt Groening, Al Jean, Richard Sakai and Mike Scully began development of the film and a writing team consisting of Brooks, Groening, Jean, Scully, Ian Maxtone-Graham, George Meyer, David Mirkin, Mike Reiss, Matt Selman, John Swartzwelder and Jon Vitti was assembled. They conceived numerous plot ideas, with Groening's being the one developed into a film. The script was rewritten over a hundred times, with rewrites continuing after work on the animation began in 2006. Consequently, hours of finished material was cut from the final release, including cameo roles from Erin Brockovich, Minnie Driver, Isla Fisher, Kelsey Grammer and Edward Norton. Tom Hanks and the members of Green Day voice their own animated counterparts in the final cut of the film, while Albert Brooks, a frequent guest performer on the series, provides the voice of the villain Cargill.
In Springfield, as rock band Green Day perform on Lake Springfield, the band members fail to engage the audience in a discussion about the environment. They are killed when the pollution in the lake erodes their barge, causing it to sink. At their memorial, Grampa Simpson frantically prophesies the destruction of the town but only Marge takes it seriously. Lisa and her new friend Colin, whom she has fallen in love with, hold a seminar where they convince the town to clean up the lake. Meanwhile, Homer adopts a pig from Krusty Burger, which causes his jealous son Bart (who is now fed up with his father's carelessness) to look to their neighbor, Ned Flanders, as a father figure.
Homer stores the pig's feces in an overflowing silo, which disgusts Marge. Homer attempts to dispose of it safely at Marge's request, but is in a rush and instead dumps the silo in the lake, critically polluting it. Moments later, a squirrel jumps into the lake and becomes severely mutated. Flanders and Bart discover the squirrel during a hike, and the EPA captures it. Russ Cargill, head of the EPA, informs President Arnold Schwarzenegger on Springfield's pollution crisis and presents five countering options. The President randomly picks the action of enclosing Springfield in a giant glass dome. When Homer's silo is discovered, an angry mob of townspeople ransack the Simpsons' home. The family escapes through a sinkhole in Maggie's sandbox and flee to Alaska. Homer wins a motorcycle contest and is awarded a truck, which the family use to restart their life.
