This past week at San Diego Comic Con a Family Guy/The Simpsons crossover was announced. We now have news that the Planet Express crew from Futurama will also be meeting The Simpsons. Check out all the details after the jump…
Creator Matt Groening and writer/producer Al Jean also revealed while at Comic Con that the cast of Futurama will be headed to Springfield in 2014. Needless to say those in attendance at the panel were very excited to hear that the crossover episode will be recording next month. The crossover event will either air as the season 25 finale of The Simpsons next May or the Season 26 premiere in the fall of 2014.
Also revealed at The Simpsons panel was never-before-seen footage from an episode directed by Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim). The sequence shown was apparently chock full of monster movie references, even including bits from Del Toro’s own films such as Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth.
