Last year, Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told fans they’d be killing off a character in the upcoming season. He even gave a tease of who it may be, hinting the person voicing that character won an Emmy for voicing that character. At the time, we tried to narrow it down but the season came and went without that death. The reason was the tragic passing of voice actor Marcia Wallace, who voiced Ms. Krabapple. The Simpsons team thought gracefully killing that character as a tribute to Wallace was enough death for one year.
That was last year. This year, Jean promises the previously hinted character will still die, and even added to his initial hint. Read the quotes about the Simpsons character death below. Read More »

Jean also discussed the origin of the project, its plot, who may or may not cameo and the possibility of another feature film. Read all that and more after the jump. Read More »
