The new Simpsons/Loki crossover Marvel short The Good, The Bart and the Loki drops Wednesday, July 7 on Disney+.
Springfield and Asgard will collide on screen when Disney+ launches its The Simpsons–Loki themed crossover short film, The Good, The Bart, and The Loki, on Wednesday, July 7, the streaming service said Wednesday.
From its official description: “In the new short coming exclusively to Disney+, 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 the ultimate crossover event paying tribute to the Marvel Cinematic Universe of superheroes and villains.”
Loki star Tom Hiddleston will naturally be doing the voice of Loki in the new animated Simpsons/Loki crossover short, and will be joined by multiple beloved characters from The Simpsons.
Along with the announcement of the short on Wednesday, Disney+ released key art for The Good, The Bart, and The Loki, which you can view above. As you may notice, the image is inspired by Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame poster, with Bart in Iron Man’s spot, Lisa as Thor, and more “Simpsons” characters taking on “Avengers” roles.
The Good, The Bart, and The Loki marks the second in a series of Disney+ shorts from “The Simpsons” team that are based on iconic Disney titles. The first was The Force Awakens From Its Nap, a “Star Wars”-themed short starring Maggie Simpson. The short was released on May 4, 2021 on Disney in celebration of Star Wars Day The idea was presented in January 2021 by Simpsons executive producer James L. Brooks who proposed to do a series of shorts where the show interacted with other franchises available in the streaming service.
New episodes of the Hiddleston-led Marvel Cinematic Universe series Loki drop Wednesdays on Disney+, with only two more remaining before the series ends.
