When Disney and Pixar released ‘Onward’ in the theaters, definitely gave the audience a new story to love. However, although many walked out of the cinema talking about the film starring Tom Holland and Chris Pratt; another not stop talking about the short that was released prior to the tape.
As is usual, Disney not only launched a new film that day, but he also premiered his first short film, ‘The Simpsons’ –which comes thanks to the agreement that is already closed between the company of the mouse and 20th Century Fox–.
Entitled ‘Playdate With Destiny’, the short has as its protagonist the child of the family, Simpsons, Maggie; and, understanding that the season premiere of ‘Onward’ was disrupted by the quarantine, preventive by the coronavirus, Disney not only has already raised the film to Disney Plus, they are also about to premiere the short at the platform.
Just today, as a kind of gift of Easter, Disney Plus announced by his Twitter account that the short – ‘The Simpsons: Playdate With Destiny’ will be released tomorrow, 10 April– on the platform to all its subscribers, who have not had the opportunity to see it in the cinema, can enjoy it all from the comfort and safety of their homes.
This short addition to the rest of the content of ‘The Simpsons’ that is already exclusive to Disney Plus, such as: the thirty seasons of the series anima, the film ‘The Simpsons Movie’ and, soon, they will be joined by another of the short films of the franchise, ‘The Longest Daycare’ (2012).
“It started because two of our writers, Tom Gammill and Max Pross, presented the basic idea as part of one of the stories from the Simpsons [para el programa] a couple of years ago. When we did the episode, [el productor ejecutivo] Jim Brooks thought they could convert that part in a short theatrical. Then, we delay the episode, which will now be aired on the 19th of April.”
So as I said one of the producers of the series, ‘Playdate With Destiny’ was born as a scene that should become a part of one of the full episodes of ‘The Simpsons’, but, Maggie Simpsons deserved it’s short-in a particular way, and both Fox and Disney gave it.
