SAN DIEGO, July 24 (UPI) -- A bevy of guest stars including Joan Rivers and Kiefer Sutherland is lined up for the new season of "The Simpsons," the creators said at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Gordon Ramsey and Michael Cera are also on the guest list for the Fox animated series, which will include one episode that takes the family to the South Pole.

The Hollywood Reporter said Sunday the plans also include a look at a Simpson's Christmas 30 years in the future, but don't look for a crossover episode with sister series "Futurama." Matt Groening, who created both series, told the Comic-Con crowd: "'Futurama' is real. 'The Simpsons' is just a cartoon."

In the real world, a new Simpsons-themed ride has opened at Universal Studios. Groening assured the audience "your minds will be blown within the first three seconds."
