They’re redrawing pages from the manga also with Simpsons characters for a while now (and it’s really good!), but making an animation like this is something special.

Based on an idea by Ryan Humphrey articulated through comics, the concept was expanded with the Bartkira project, a comic collaboration of Simpsons fans, curated by James Harvey. In association with the comic, Moon Animate Make-Up producer Kaitlin Sullivan pitched the idea of an animated trailer to match and with the work of over fifty artists, produced the Bartkira animated trailer.

That’s why, even after ~30 years, the movie is still one of the best anime ever made.

(edit : at that time, there was no or very few CG stuffs ... everything was hand drawn)
