For those that have already seen this, you could probably disregard, but I caught this for the first time yesterday and thought it was worthy of your attention. With the Toronto International Film Festival in full swing (have you checked out our coverage yet?), movie news is pretty scarce. So, this gives us time to point you toward a few fun little nuggets hanging around on the internets. Have you ever wondered what it would look like if the opening to The Simpsons was changed to include Star Wars characters, and was set inside the Star Wars universe? Well, that's exactly what I've posted above -- a re-creation of The Simpsons opening, with folks like a young Luke Skywalker (as Bart), Darth Vader (as Homer), Obi-Wan, C-3P0, Han Solo, Chewbacca and R2D2 (as Marge and Maggie, although Ned Flanders makes a cameo as Solo and that Chewbacca looks very much like Barney). The video was created by a guy named Rich Cando, and if you're a fan of either, it's a pretty fun watch.
In related news, will Bart tease a Simpsons Movie sequel in the opening episode of the show's 19th season later this month? Apparently, during that oh-so-classic opening (as mocked in the above video) Bart will scribble "I will not wait 20 years to make another movie" on the blackboard. However, as the NY Post points out, don't go holding your breath thinking those Simpsons freaks are already knee-deep in planning a second installment. According to exec producer Al Jean, "We would only do a sequel if we believed it was a movie that had to be made, just like we did with the first one. We wouldn't want to do it just because the first one was successful, or because we wanted to make money off of a movie. We'd only do it if we had a script that we thought was great [and] there's no script at this point."
