"Springfield is certainly NOT ready for its close-up but it's happening anyway! Polystar Pictures has returned to film their next new original idea - a reboot of the reboot of 'The Sands of Space.' Just one problem - Krusty is signed on to direct. Little does he know (since he hasn't read the script) that Polystar plans to retcon Marble Universe characters into the film. Can Krusty deliver a hit or will it be egomaniac vs egomaniac until the studio calls cut on the entire production?"
