Simpsons, Star Wars Unite

Two of Disney+’s big franchises have joined forces to celebrate Star Wars Day, with Maggie Simpson starring in a new short, The Force Awakens From its Nap.

Maggie, seeking her stolen pacifier, comes face-to-face with young Padawans, Sith Lords, droids, Rebels, and a battle against the dark side, while in Springfield.

Disney+ today also debuts Star Wars: The Bad Batch, Star Wars Biomes and Star Wars Vehicle Flythroughs.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch, a 14-episode series, follows the experimental clones of the Bad Batch (who were introduced in Disney +’s The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy. After today’s premiere of the first episodes, new episodes will debut on Fridays from May 7 to July 30.

Star Wars Biomes promises to take Disney+ subscribers on flyover tours of such Star Wars locations as Hoth, Tatooine and Sorgan, while Star Wars Vehicle Flythroughs promises explorations of the interiors and exteriors of the Millennium Falcon and an Imperial Star Destroyer.

May the Fourth be With You!
