J.J.Abrams, one of the most successful filmmakers in Hollywood in recent years, will make his cameo in the next episode of The Simpsons. The director and producer behind the latest films from successful franchises like Star Wars and Star Trek will be in Springfield to thwart a plan outlined by Homer.
The episode that will feature J.J. will air next Sunday (14) and is titled “Do Pizza Bots Dream of Electric Guitars”. In the plot, “Homer tries to reunite a band formed by robots from his youth, however, Abrams manages to catch them first”.
20th Television took the opportunity to publicize the first image of the episode, revealing what J.J.Abrams will look like in The Simpsons.
In the picture, we can see that Homer is apparently trying to lie or hide something from the director – perhaps the Star Wars droids that appear under the singing bull lying on the sidewalk. Lisa and Bart also appears in the image, standing next to Abrams and visibly concerned about the situation. Check out:
