The Simpsons animated short Playdate with Destiny was first shown ahead of Disney and Pixar’s Onward when it had its brief run in theaters. It stars Maggie Simpson and not surprisingly features her playdate. Playdate with Destiny will be arriving on Disney+ on Friday April 10, 2020.  It follows the success of the first animated short by The Simpsons: Maggie Simpson in ‘The Longest Daycare.’ This short will be arriving on Disney’s streaming service later in the month. The Simpsons have had a successful run of 30 seasons and is also on Disney+, along with The Simpsons Movie.

Creator of The Simpsons, Matt Groening shared the announcement with a handwritten note on social media.

Playdate with Destiny Description

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?

Originally released in theatres before Disney and Pixar’s “Onward,” “Maggie Simpson in ‘Playdate with Destiny’” builds on the success of the franchise’s 2012 Academy Award-nominated film, “Maggie Simpson in ‘The Longest Daycare,’” which will also begin streaming on Disney+ later this month. Both films join the service’s impressive “The Simpsons” collection including “The Simpsons Movie” and 30 seasons of the Emmy Award-winning television series.
