DeLisle-Griffin is well-established as a voice actor. She played Catwoman in the video game Batman: Arkham City, voiced Arcee in Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen, as well as a number of characters in Netflix’s new She-Ra reboot.

Her predecessor Taylor was also known for playing Disney’s Minnie Mouse for over 30 years, and was married to Wayne Allwine, the voice of Mickey Mouse, until his death in 2009.

DeLisle-Griffin’s first series of The Simpsons features an episode themed around Marvel’s The Avengers, set to air next year. It follows episodes that focused on Game of Thrones and Stranger Things.

In other Simpsons news, it has been confirmed that Olivia Colman will appear in the new series, portraying a character who falls in love with Homer.
