Homer Is Going To Be Live In An Upcoming Simpsons Episode; Here's How
There's a reason most cartoons aren't broadcast live. It has a little something to do with the fact THEY ARE GODDAMN CARTOONS.
It's not actually possible - we totally tried once - to animate a character in real time. Well, that is, until now.
Homer is going live in a three-minute segment in an upcoming slot on The Simpsons. The episode, which airs on May 15, will feature Homer answering viewers' questions.
Producer Al Jean told the Hollywood Reporter that they will use motion capture technology to get Homer moving an talking about things he "could only be saying live on that day". We imagine it will look a bit like this:
"As far as I know, this is the first time that’s been done by any animated show," he said. Pretty neat, eh?
If you want Homer to answer your wildly inappropriate questions on air, use the hashtag #HomerLive between the 1st and 4th of May.
