The Simpsons Short ‘Playdate with Destiny’ Will Play Before Pixar’s Onward Film

While Pixar films normally feature original shorts ahead of new releases, Disney’s recent acquisition of Fox has created a new universe of properties.

Onward will feature a Simpsons short entitled, “Playdate With Destiny”  centered on the youngest member of the iconic animated family, Maggie!

Set in a suburban fantasy world, Disney Pixar’s Onward introduces two teenage elf brothers who embark on an extraordinary quest to discover if there is still a little magic left out there. The cast will feature the voices of MCU stars Chris Pratt (Avengers: Infinity War), and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Far From Home), portraying the roles of elf brothers Barley Lighfoot and Ian Lightfoot, respectively. The film will also star Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) as Laurel Lightfoot, Octavia Spencer (The Shape of Water) as the Manticore, Mel Rodriguez, as Officer Colt Bronco, Lena Waithe as Officer Specter; and Ali Wong as Officer Gore. The feature will be directed by Dan Scanlon (Monsters University) and produced by Kori Rae. Scanlon said that Onward was inspired by his own relationship with his brother.

Onward will arrive in theaters on March 6, 2020.

The Simpsons Release Avengers: Endgame Parody Poster

Matt Selman has revealed a Simpsons Avengers: Endgame Parody Poster that is promoting the upcoming episode on Sunday March 1.

The episode will feature cameos from Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo, and Avengers‘ Cobie Smulders. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will also make an appearance. The Russos will be appearing as themselves, while Feige will voice Chinnos, a sort of Thanos with too many chins.

According to the official synopsis, in Bart the Bad Guy, Bart manages — by way of a massive misunderstanding — to see an advance cut of the unreleased sequel of the extremely popular Vindicator superhero movie franchise. And he quickly discovers that he can leverage his recently procured spoiler knowledge as blackmail material. But when the studio execs behind the film learn of Bart’s scheme, they vow to stop at nothing to silence him.
