Maggie Simpson is Katniss Everdeen

The official poster to celebrate The Simpsons’ annual Treehouse of Horror Halloween episode features Maggie Simpson going all Katniss Everdeen.


This year’s episode also marks the show’s 600th episode.

According to USA Today, the episode opens with a short segment in which Simpson foes, including Sideshow Bob, try to kill the family.

The three main segments include a satire of dystopian movies in which evil Mr. Burns controls the only water in a Springfield gone dry.¬†A story in which an imaginary friend (Sarah Silverman) from Lisa’s younger days returns to kill her real friends; and a James Bond-themed segment with accents of Kingsman: The Secret Service that features bartender Moe running a secret society that tries to keep order in the world.

As well as Maggie going all J-Law, the poster features¬†Homer “wearing a homemade Bender costume,” a nod to Simpsons’ creator Matt Groening’s Futurama, producer Al Jean says.

“Bart is a raptor. Marge is an ice cream cone and Lisa is a recycling bin.”

Treehouse of Horror XXVII broadcasts in the US on October 16.
