The Simpsons Movie is set to get a sequel but it could take years.

In 2013 the creator of The Simpsons Matt Groening said the 2007 film was a laborious film to make, taking animators from the show and being extremely time consuming, and a sequel was not a priority.

However, according to the Wall Street Journal a sequel is in development, but Director David Silverman says it could be another 10 or 15 years before it hits the big screen.

Alongside a potential Simpsons sequel there are reports of a Bob's Burgers film and a Family Guy film, the latter a mix of live action and animation.

The Simpsons Movie was a huge hit at the box office, making US$520 million.
