EW and MTV are reporting that this year’s Simpsons’ “Treehouse of Horror” will feature a Twilight parody! Not only that, but Daniel Radcliffe will be voicing the character of Edmund, a vampire boy that Lisa falls for! I know it’s almost a year away, but…yay!
In his appearance, Radcliffe will play Edmund, a boy vampire whom Lisa falls for. Unfortunately for the Twilight-crossed lovers, Homer and Dracula — Edmund’s dear, old dad — don’t approve of the union, and they endeavor to put a stop to it. Obviously not a direct spoof of the “Twilight” plot.
“Twilight” has remained untouched until now, however. It probably has something to do with the fact that the phenomenon triggered in large part by the movie’s release is only a year old. It’s relatively common knowledge among fans that an average episode of “The Simpsons” takes roughly nine months to produce, so “Twilight”’s rapid rise in popularity explains why we’ll only just be seeing a “Simpsons” nod — a series known for staying culturally relevant .
