The following are theories and predictions on The Simpsons film that made a commotion with scenes that have occurred in the real world:
- September 11 tragedy

- White Tiger Pounced on Circus 2003
In 1993, there was also a scene in The Simpsons that featured the circus performance duo being pounced on by their white tiger.
Exactly 10 years later Siegfried and Roy were attacked by their white tiger while performing in Las Vegas, United States.
- Neymar’s injury.
The Simpsons in the 16th episode of season 25 entitled ‘You Don’t Have to Live Like a Referee’ which aired on March 30, 2014, featured a scene of a soccer player named El Divo from Brazil who suffered a severe injury.

- Ebola Virus

- Trump’s Victory As President.
One of the craziest theories on The Simpsons was in 2000 in episode 17 of season 11 entitled Bart The Future. In that episode there is a scene where Donald Trump becomes President.
Nessie revealed, at that time in 2000, it sounded ridiculous considering Donald Trump is a host, billionaire and crazy businessman who likes to fire people. Donald Trump is more known as a celebrity than a politician and not many thought he would become a politician so many laughed at the episode.
Until finally in 2017, Donald Trump actually became a President.
Not only that, when the map of the presidential election area was shown on The Simpsons, it was widely believed that the map was said to be the same as the map in the real election of Donald Trump’s victory.
- Three-Eyed Fish
In 1990, The Simpsons through the character of Bart caught a fish that had three eyes in a river in the city where he lived.
It is known that this three-eyed fish is the effect of pollution from nuclear power plants in the city. 20 years later in 2011 a 3-eyed fish was discovered in Argentina, which is close to a nuclear power plant.
Those are some scenes in The Simpsons series whose scenes are similar to those that occur in the real world.
