Watch The Simpsons’ amazing tribute to Hayao Miyazaki online now

The latest movie tribute from The Simpsons has arrived online, and it's an absolute treat, paying homage to Studio Ghibli animator, Hayao Miyazaki.

The sequence begins after Homer has over-indulged at a Japanese meal, and begins to find himself hallucinating some bizarre goings on.

What happens next is a glorious take-off of Spirited Away , as various members of the Simpsons universe crop up as Miyazaki-esque oddities.

Take a look at the clip, below...

Everything is note-perfect here, from the music down to the other-worldly atmosphere. And we particularly like that strange Skinner-kite!

The sequence will air as part of this Sunday’s episode in the US, with a UK air date set to follow in due course.
