From worstpreviews, Matt Groening spoke to Reuters, revealing that "The Simpsons Movie" will offend people, as it targets organized religion and environmentalists."
In America there's someone willing to pretend to be offended by everything and so we annoy people and that's part of the appeal," said Groening. "[The Simpsons Movie is meant] to entertain people and also to annoy a certain segment of the audience as well." (He also revealed that Homer will fall in love with a pig!)
Writer Al Jean added, "They are big themes, especially the environmental theme, but we always like to approach it from both sides, so later in the film when Lisa's giving a lecture about the pollution, the label of the lecture is An Irritating Truth.
"Reuters got the chance to see a ten minute clip from the film, which they described in full detail. May contain SPOILERS!
"Rock band Green Day is booed and pelted when it starts speaking about the environment to a Springfield crowd, while Homer's daughter Lisa is a green campaigner shunned by the town's inhabitants who simply don't care. She may also find love, however, after she swoons upon meeting a fellow campaigner from Ireland who insists he is not the son of U2 frontman and celebrity campaigner Bono."
