The Simpsons gets the Studio Ghibli treatment

It looks like two of my all time favourite animations are coming together this Sunday in a very special episode of The Simpsons. Referencing such classic films as Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro and Howl’s Moving Castle. The most recent iterations of The Simpsons have certainly had an air of the surreal about them, so perhaps penning a tribute to the work of Hayao Miyazaki isn’t wholly unexpected…

The special edition airs under the title ‘Married To The Blob’, unsurprisingly focusing on the exploits of the beloved Comic Book Guy. Apparently the episode is to commemorate the release of ‘The Wind Rises’, which is Miyazaki’s final film – coming to cinemas this February. See the trailer below.
