'Star Wars' Comes To 'The Simpsons' In New Short For Star Wars Day

Disney+ is celebrating Star Wars Day with an all new The Simpsons short!

Titled The Force Awakens From Its Nap, the short film will bring together the two beloved franchises for the iconic holiday.

Here’s the summary for The Force Awakens From Its Nap: “In a daycare far, far away… but still in Springfield, Maggie is on an epic quest for her stolen pacifier. Her adventure brings her face-to-face with young Padawans, Sith Lords, familiar droids, Rebel scum, and an ultimate battle against the dark side, in this original short celebrating the Star Wars galaxy.”

The short will feature characters from the Star Wars galaxy to the fictional town of Springfield, and is just the first of several Simpsons shorts that the streaming service plans to release this year.

The Force Awakens From Its Nap will be available on Disney+ beginning at Tuesday, May 4 at 12:00 AM Pacific time.
