Episode featuring Homer and family as Lego characters to be part of show's 25th season including Futurama collaboration

Thanks to heavy marketing including an entire ad break recreated with bricks, The Lego Movie enjoyed a bumper weekend at the box office, raking in $13.4m in the UK and $69.1m in the Us. Now Lego is going one step further by recreating an entire episode of The Simpsons out of the building blocks. For the 550th episode of the show, titled Brick Like Me, Homer wakes up to find that everyone in Springfield is made of Lego. He then has to "put together" how he got there and work out how to get home. Other episodes to mark the show's 25th season include a Halloween special directed by Hellboy film-maker Guillermo del Toro and a collaboration with Simpsons creator Matt Groening's other series Futurama.
