‘The Simpsons’ 3-D Short To Play Before ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift’

Maggie Simpson

For the first time since 2007’s ‘The Simpsons Movie’, America’s favorite four-fingered family is hitting the big screen. Actually, as far as we can tell, mostly just the oft-ignored Maggie Simpson will be appearing in theaters all over the country come next week.

The youngest Simpson is the star of the four-and-a-half-minute, dialogue-less 3-D short ‘The Longest Daycare.’ It will air before the movie ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift,’ which drops on July 13. Check out a trailer for the short below.

As you can see, trailers for shorts are — appropriately — very short. But Simpsons’ executive producer Al Jean gave a little more insight into ‘The Longest Daycare,” which takes place at the Ayn Rand School for Tots, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“They put each baby through an airport security-style testing machine to measure their future and [Maggie’s] says ‘Nothing Special’, so they put her in an area that’s not great,” Jean explained. “If they put her in a good area, it wouldn’t be much of a plot. For a four-minute plot, it has a number of twists and turns… It’s very sweet but funny.”

What do you think? Does this Simpsons bonus make you want to see ‘Ice Age?’
