New Simpsons short arrives on Disney+ today

Good news for Simpsons fans who have Disney+ today as a new short hits the streaming service.

Since Disney now own Fox, this is the big welcoming over everyone’s favourite yellow family to the family and it focuses on… Maggie?!

Called Playdate With Destiny, the short was originally set to appear with Pixar’s Onwards movie but due to that damned virus, that all got thrown off course, very few actually saw it on the big screen and with Onwards hitting digital a couple of weeks back, now we have this too.

The film begins on a day that seemed like just another day at the park for Maggie Simpson. But when Maggie faces playground peril, a heroic young baby whisks her from danger — and steals her heart. After a blissful first playdate, Maggie can’t wait to see her new baby beau again the following day, but things don’t go exactly as planned. Will fate (or Homer) get in her way?

Check out the announcement on Disney+’s social media:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
