In the episode, Homer wakes up in a Springfield. But everything is different; everything and everyone is Lego. He has to figure out what’s going on. The show creators have mixed multiple forms of animation and teamed with Lego to create a unique episode.
New images from The Simpsons Lego episode featuring the characters as regular animation, Lego animation, a blend of the two, and a little bit of the plot which might involve a Lego playset.
The Lego episode of the Simpsons has been in development before producers even knew a similar idea was happening in The Lego Movie. Here’s how producer Matt Selman described the development:
We didn’t know about the movie [when this episode started developing]. For the record, we still don’t know about the movie. [Laughs] Brian and I had been dreaming of doing a Simpsons Lego episode for as long as we could remember, and in early 2012 we started seriously talking about making it happen. Then we found out that Lego was into doing a Simpsons couch gag. So it was a magical coming-together of pretend yellow people.
