It so happened at the Comic-Con, that team The Simpsons was in attendance.

Director Mike Anderson playfully submitted that “We could do an actual rock.”
The Simpsons series writer Carolyn Omine even admitted to having a story ready for Dwayne Johnson’s appearance on the show. “There is a story that we came up with, Lisa and The Rock, but we don’t know yet,” she explained. “We’re still hoping The Rock will hear us. If anybody knows The Rock, tell him that we want that!”
An excited Yardley Smith jumped in again and said how she has been wanting to have Dwayne Johnson on The Simpsons for years. “I’ve only been saying this was a great idea every time I do an interview for about the last two years,” the star began. “They’re like, ‘So what guest star would you like to have on The Simpsons?’ and I’m like, ‘Well, I would like to have Dwayne Johnson. I would like him to befriend Lisa Simpson. Duh.’”
