The Simpsons Pay Tribute to Legendary Japanese Animator Hayao Miyazaki

thesimpsons-miyazaki-01 thesimpsons-miyazaki-02 thesimpsons-miyazaki-03

I haven’t watched The Simpsons in years but I might have to this Sunday. The teaser for the next episode reveals it to be a tribute to Japanese director, animator, Hayao Miyazaki. It will be an entire episode brimming with references to Studio Ghibli films.

*Edit – it was not an entire episode, it was just this sequence unfortunately.

The teaser has glimpses of My Neighbor TotoroHowl’s Moving Castle, Princess Mononoke, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, well, you get the idea.

I was thinking though, how cool would it have been to have Studio Ghibli actually produce the episode of The Simpsons? In their style! I guess, this is the next best thing.

Watch the video below!

    On the same page, haven’t watched any episodes in years. That being said, it’s cool to see them create thematic episodes. I haven’t seen the street art episode they did, but it definitely makes the show worth watching if they can change it up a little bit. Because apart from that, The Simpsons really shouldnt be on air anymore.
