Fox has released the first photos from The Simpsons annual Halloween special, Treehouse of Horror XXXI. The images give fans a preview of the episode that will parody Pixar’s Toy Story and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
- Treehouse of Horror XXXI will feature three segments, directed by Steven Dean Moore from a script written by Julia Prescott.
- Toy Gory is animated like a Pixar film and sees Bart pay the price for treating his toys badly.
- Into the Homerverse unleashes different Homers from across the multiverse on Springfield – including Disney Princess Homer.
- Be Kind, Rewind has Lisa trapped in a Groundhog Day-like experience as she celebrates her birthday over and over again.
On-air for more than 30 years, The Simpsons has become a worldwide cultural phenomenon.
Created by Matt Groening in the late 1980s, the series is a satirical depiction of American life, epitomized by the Simpson family – Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television and the human condition.
