April is in full swing, which means Disney+ is full of new content. Even though Disney+ announced it’s April line-up last month, they still have a few surprises up their sleeve. In fact, they just announced that a new The Simpsons’ short, “Playdate with Destiny” would be available to stream starting today. Isn’t that exciting?
Disney+ shared the news via a handwritten note from The Simpsons creator Matt Groening and the team of creators that worked on the short.
“Playdate with Destiny” released initially alongside Pixar’s Onward in theaters. Of course, with everything going on in the world, many fans weren’t able to make it out to see the film or the short. Neither Disney or The Simpsons team were okay with letting their hard-work go unnoticed, which is why they’re releasing it globally on Disney+.
“Playdate with Destiny” centers on the youngest Simpson family member, Maggie, who has found love on the playground. After being saved by the love of her life, the two share a first date before being whisked off by their parents. Maggie is eager to get to the park the next day, but unfortunately, Homer is in charge of her that day and takes her to the wrong park! Maggie spends the remainder of the short, trying to find the love of her life so they can go on another perfect date together.
While Maggie might not take part in a lot of the action on The Simpsons, she’s had her fair share of adventures in the short film world. In fact, in 2012, Maggie Simpson was featured in The Simpsons short “The Longest Daycare.” The short was a hit and even earned The Simpsons team an Academy Award nomination. Luckily for us, “The Longest Daycare” will also be joining Disney+ line up later this month!
And don’t forget, you can watch all 30 seasons of The Simpsons and the original movie on Disney+ right now. I guess we know what you’re going to be doing this weekend!
