The longest-running primetime scripted show in television history, THE SIMPSONS, created by Matt Groening and developed by James L. Brooks and Sam Simon, exploded into a cultural phenomenon in 1990 and has remained one of the most groundbreaking and innovative entertainment franchises, recognisable around the world. THE SIMPSONS, which is now in its 32nd season, has won 34 Emmy Awards, 34 Annie Awards, 9 Environmental Media Awards, 7 People’s Choice Awards, and 13 Writers Guild of America Awards.
It was also the first animated series to earn a Peabody Award, and it got the Institutional Peabody Award in 2019. It was nominated for an Academy Award in 2012 for the theatrical short “The Longest Daycare.” This was followed by the theatrical short “Playdate with Destiny” (2020) and the Disney+ exclusive “The Force Awakens From Its Nap” (2021).
“The Good, The Bart, and The Loki,” a new Marvel-themed short from “The Simpsons,” will premiere today, July 7, on Disney+ Hotstar. Loki is banished from Asgard one more in the new short, which will be available exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar, and must confront his hardest opponents yet: the Simpsons and Springfield’s mightiest heroes.
In the greatest crossover event honouring the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Super Heroes and Villains, the God of Mischief allies up with Bart Simpson.
In the new animated short, Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki. The God of Mischief will appear alongside several “The Simpsons” fan favourites.
Key art for “The Good, The Bart, and The Loki,” was inspired by the poster for Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Endgame.”
“The Good, The Bart, and The Loki” is the second in a series of “The Simpsons” Disney+ Hotstar films highlighting the service’s major brands and content. The previously published Star Wars-themed short film “Maggie Simpson in ‘The Force Awakens from Its Nap'” is now available to watch on Disney+ Hotstar.
