Disney+ has announced that The Good, The Bart, and The Loki, a new Marvel-themed short from The Simpsons, will premiere on the streaming service on Wednesday, July 7.
In the short movie, Loki is banished from Asgard once again and must face his toughest opponents yet: the Simpsons and Springfield’s mightiest heroes. The God of Mischief teams up with Bart Simpson in what's described as "the ultimate crossover event paying tribute to the Marvel Cinematic Universe of Super Heroes and villains."
Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role from Loki, and The Good, The Bart, and The Loki arrives on Disney+ the same day as the penultimate episode of the iconic villain's solo series.
This will serve as the second in a series of Disney+ shorts from The Simpsons that tie into other Disney-owned franchises (the last effort, The Force Awakens from Its Nap, was based on Star Wars).
It'll definitely be fun seeing Loki take centre stage in an animated crossover like this one, and it's clear Disney is looking to bring as much exclusive content based on The Simpsons to its streaming service as possible. Ultimately, it's likely the series will move to Disney+ on a weekly basis, while it's definitely surprising that another feature-length movie hasn't arrived on that yet.
