“The Simpsons” Producer Reassures Fans After Disney Censorship Cases

Following the deal between the Walt Disney Company and 20th Century Fox, many fans were worried about the future of projects that were not in line with Disney’s family policy. Especially after viewers noticed studio censorship in Splash and Lilo & Stitch. Recently, The Simpsons producer Michael Price in an interview with CBR urged not to worry about the series, because there is no censorship from the new owners:

As far as I can tell, I have not had direct contact with anyone at Disney. They just let us do what we have been doing and what we have been doing for 32 years. They know that everyone knows what our show should look like. They helped a lot and it’s great that the series is now coming to Disney +. In terms of content, I haven’t noticed any difference since I purchased it. More or less we are allowed to do what we want. The show was originally on Fox, and we continue to work for Fox Network, even though they are now owned by Disney.

While one of the creators of the PG-13-rated series has reassured fans, they continue to fear for the future of the R-rated projects. The future of Deadpool’s Marvel character and the Alien franchise is still unknown. In both cases, the success of the projects depended on a plot that did not fit into the Disney family policy.
