Onward arrived at Disney Plus a week back, which implied that the animated movie’s accompanying short made certain to follow.
Other Than, when Onward remained in theaters about a month back, in lieu of the conventional Pixar short, a Simpsons animation, entitled Playdate with Fate, played prior to it. That’s some sweet business synergy right there.
The short focuses around the youngest member of the Simpson family, Maggie, who has a meet-cute with a dashing complete stranger at the park and invests a joyous day doing infant activities with him on the play area (which in her creativity develops into a glamorous romantic affair). The playdate is soon over and Maggie invests the rest of the short yearning for her missed out on connection and practically however not rather reuniting with him. The stress! The drama! The pining!
Playdate with Fate consists of a couple of background gags to please any Simpsons fan, however the bulk of the funny originates from the enjoyable juxtaposition of how Maggie sees the world in her infant eyes and what the word is in factlike While Maggie images dining on chocolate-covered strawberries in a fine restaurant, her infant partner is in fact pushing sand into her mouth.
While Playdate with Fate is the first Simpsons short connected to a Disney motion picture, it’s not the first Simpsons short connected to a cartoon animation. In 2012, another Maggie-focused short entitled The Longest Daycare, premiered prior to Glacial epoch: Continental Drift (and likewise … The Life of Pi), and even made an Oscar election in the Animated Short classification. While it’s definitely odd to see the Mickey Mouse logo design turning into Homer’s smiling face, The Simpsons team loaning characters to more family- friendly bites isn’t something distinct to their new Disney family.
Playdate with Fate is readily available on Disney Plus.
