Special short from The Simpsons to be released to mark Star Wars Day on May 4
A special short from The Simpsons will be released on Disney+ in celebration of Star Wars Day on May 4.
Maggie Simpson in Rogue Not Quite One will see a coming together of two of the biggest Disney-owned franchises to mark the occasion.
Star Wars Day takes place annually on May 4, in a nod to the films’ famous phrase “may the Force be with you”.
The upcoming special will see Homer Simpson lose track of Maggie, who jumps into Baby Yoda’s hovering pram and heads off on a hyperspace- hopping adventure across the galaxy.
Maggie will bring an explosive space battle to Springfield in the short, which celebrates all things Star Wars.
