Have you heard about this?
Some cities named Springfield are fighting because they want the movie to be filmed there

The Simpsons Very Happy

As far as I know, "Springfield" is the most common and popular name of the towns in the USA. There are places named "Springfield" in 34 different states, at least four in Wisconsin and not less than nine in Pennsylvania.

I wonder which one will succeed... Laughing

That's the interesting point Cool
Which one of those cities is going to have that kind of privilege? Rolling Eyes

I've heared that real actors will be replaced with the animated characters so as to avoid sewing special costumes which are obviously very difficult to made. As far as I know, the worst thing was to create a mask imitating Simpson's face. I can't imagine how stupid would they look like... Laughing

I think they will look like the Flinstones in their movie or something similar to that.

Exactly! I suppose that's the reason the movie producers had given up this idea. People in the cinema would laugh their heads off and the cause of their reaction wouldn't be witty dialogues between the characters of the movie but their silly appearance. Very Happy

There has been a basketball movie by warner bros. movie world, with bugs bunny etc. I forgot it's name, but I watched it in cinema. It's very good. It's also a combination of real characters (basketball players) and cartoons.

You probably mean "Space Jam". I've seen it too, very funny one especially when I watched it for the first time as a child. Although the movie is quite old (11 yrs old) I must admit that computer animation and special effects were of pretty high quality.
