Problem, as we can discover through the works of Disney, the target audience of its films and series is mainly family, where The Simpsons has on the contrary an adult target, evidenced by its diversions, criticism of society, its double-sided jokes and his incisive humor.
The Simpsons soon to be censored?
So the question we can ask ourselves is: are Disney and The Simpsons compatible or, now that the series is available on Disney +, should we expect to see the series gradually being censored in its ambitions? ? Michael Price – historical producer of fiction, was reassuring to CBR.
” The series has been broadcast on Fox from the start and we continue to work with the channel, even if Fox Studio is now owned by Disney ” he recalled initially. Then, in order to make us understand that Disney has no intention of disrupting the Simpsons recipe that has worked so well for 31 seasons (soon to be 32), the producer revealed, ” I had no contact with whom be it from Disney. They just let us do what we've always done with this show for 32 years. They know full well that everyone here knows what they're doing . ”
Words that can already be verified on Disney +. Despite a recent quack from the platform about the format of the old episodes, none of them have been changed / censored, not even those that criticize … Disney.
The ever stronger series
Better, where part of the public could fear to see Disney interfering in the creation of The Simpsons , Michael Price was finally satisfied with the integration of the series within the catalog of the studio, ” They were of a great help and it's great of them to add us to Disney +. (…) It's amazing how popular the show is now on the platform . ”
Yes, even in 2020 The Simpsons still manages to find a new audience. Suffice to say that the cult series with many records is really not about to end.
