Disney+ Celebrates ‘Star Wars’ Day With ‘Simpsons’ Crossover Short
Disney+ celebrated Star Wars Day 2021 on May 4 with a short titled “Maggie Simpson in ‘The Force Awakens From Its Nap.'” This short is now available on the platform along with the animated series Star Wars: A Bad Batch, two bundles of virtual artwork for fans.
The title of the short refers to the latest in the Star Wars trilogy, however, the crossover takes inspiration from many different moments throughout the franchise. The poster shows the image of a Springfield Darth Maul, with a death star in the background and BB-8 right by little Maggie’s side.
Disney+ promises that this short is not going to be the only crossover between the Simpsons and Star Wars franchises, and plan to release plenty of other shorts throughout the year, possibly with the idea of other special occasions in mind.
