THE SIMPSONS and MCU Collide in New Disney+ Short

The Sacred Timeline has more Lokis  than it can handle. That’s a problem for the TVA, but not for us. We’ll take as many versions of the God of Mischief as we can get. Now Disney+ is giving us yet another one. Odin’s troublemaking son is taking a break from his MCU series and heading to Springfield, USA. Tom Hiddleston is appearing in a new short with The Simpsons as the trickster god.

Disney has announced it’s next big special for The Simpsons, “The Good, The Bart, and The Loki.” The Marvel-themed short arrives on Disney+ on Wednesday, July 7. It will follow the chaos-creating prince—voiced by the MCU’s own Tom Hiddleston—after he is banished from Asgard. Again. That will lead him to “face his toughest opponents yet,” the Simpsons and their fellow town folk.

Fortunately for Loki, he’ll find a kindred spirit in Springfield in Bart. The two will team-up in what Disney calls the “ultimate crossover event paying tribute to the Marvel Cinematic Universe of Super Heroes and villains.” In a special that will include lots of characters fans know and love from The Simpsons. The short’s official Avengers: Endgame-style poster gives us an idea of which famous denizens will serve as Springfield’s mightiest heroes. (Moe as Vision is our favorite, just barely edging out Incredible Ralph.)

“The Good, The Bart, and The Loki” will be the second Disney+ short to combine the iconic animated series with another famous Disney franchise. Not that long ago, in galaxy pretty close to us, The Simpsons met Star Wars, in the delightful “The Force Awakens from Its Nap.” That short featured Maggie trying to survive the Dark Side of daycare. It’s a special featuring tons of great Easter eggs for fans of both franchises.

We expect this latest crossover event to have just as many. But exactly how many versions of Loki it includes remains to be seen.
