The film was theatrically released in the United States on July 27, 2022, by 20th Century Studios.

Plot[]

As rock band Green Day perform on Lake Springfield, the band members fail to engage the audience in a discussion about the environment. They are killed when the pollution in the lake erodes their barge, causing it to sink. At their memorial, Grampa Simpson frantically prophesies the destruction of the town but only Marge takes it seriously. Lisa and her new friend Colin, whom she has fallen in love with, hold a seminar where they convince the town to clean up the lake. Meanwhile, Homer adopts a pig from Krusty Burger, which causes his son Bart to look to their neighbor, Ned Flanders, as a father figure.

Homer stores the pig's feces in an overflowing silo, which disgusts Marge. Homer attempts to dispose of it safely at Marge's request, but gets distracted and instead dumps the silo in the lake, critically polluting it. Moments later, a squirrel jumps into the lake and becomes severely mutated. Flanders and Bart discover the squirrel during a hike, and the EPA captures it. Russ Cargill, head of the EPA, informs President Arnold Schwarzenegger on Springfield's pollution crisis and presents five countering options. The President randomly picks the action of enclosing Springfield in a giant glass dome. When Homer's silo is discovered, an angry mob of townspeople ransack the Simpsons' home. The family escapes through a sinkhole in Maggie's sandbox and flee to Alaska. Homer wins a motorcycle contest and is awarded a truck, which the family use to restart their life.

After three months of failed escape attempts, cracks start to appear in the dome and Cargill, not wanting news of what he has done to become international, plots to destroy Springfield. In Alaska, the Simpsons see an advertisement featuring Tom Hanks for a new Grand Canyon on the site of Springfield. Horrified that their hometown is in danger, Marge and the kids decide to save it, but Homer objects to help the people who tried to kill them. The family abandon Homer but are captured by the EPA and placed back in the dome. After an encounter with a mysterious Inuit shaman, Homer has an epiphany that he must save the town in order to save himself.

Homer learns his family are in Springfield and a helicopter lowers a time bomb suspended by rope through a hole in the roof of the dome. Homer climbs to the peak of the dome using superglue and descends the rope, knocking the escaping townspeople and the bomb off. After reuniting with Bart, they use a motorcycle to travel up the side of the dome and Bart throws the bomb through the hole, seconds before detonation. The bomb explodes, shattering the dome. Cargill attempts to kill Homer for thwarting his plan, but Maggie knocks him out with a boulder. The townspeople praise Homer, who rides off with Marge on the motorcycle into the sunset as Springfield begins restoration.
