As we reported earlier this week, Universal has added several new characters from The Simpsons to Springfield USA! Acting on the promise originally made by Springfield’s Project Director Jon Corfino that the land would evolve with time, Universal has added Ralph Wiggum, Nelson Muntz and Lisa Simpson to the “Welcome to Springfield” community sign.
Observers can also see Snake Jailbird escaping from the Springfield Police Station – a scene that was originally included in the Springfield USA concept art but notably absent when the land debuted in 2015.
In addition, Chief Wiggum and the Simpsons family have also received a fresh layer of paint in preparation for a private Simpsons event held earlier this month. Since Springfield debuted, the land has received several changes, including modifications to Krusty Burger and Duff Brewery among several others.
