A Simpsons homage to iconic Japanese animation studio

With the announcement of The Simpsons Lego (opens in new tab), we're become a bit obsessed with one of televisions most popular and longest running shows. Here, they pay homage to another animation great - Studio Ghibli (opens in new tab)'s Hayao Miyazaki.

We see nods to films such as Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro and Howl's Moving Castle among others. Witnessing one legendary animation team paying tribute to another is an inspiring watch and Matt Groening's minions don't disappoint.

Who would have thought Miyazaki's creations would look so great in the land of Springfield? We don't know about you but we'd like to see more Simpsons tributes! Who could be next?
