  • Originally released in theatres before Disney and Pixar’s Onward, “Maggie Simpson in ‘Playdate with Destiny’” builds on the success of the franchise’s 2012 Academy Award-nominated film, “Maggie Simpson in ‘The Longest Daycare,’” which will also begin streaming on Disney+ later this month.
  • Both films join the service’s impressive The Simpsons collection including The Simpsons Movie and 30 seasons of the Award-winning television series.

About “Maggie Simpson in Playdate with Destiny’” 

  • “The film begins on a day that seemed like just another day at the park for Maggie Simpson. But when Maggie faces playground peril, a heroic young baby whisks her from danger — and steals her heart. After a blissful first playdate, Maggie can’t wait to see her new baby beau again the following day, but things don’t go exactly as planned. Will fate (or Homer) get in her way?”
  • While it’s a bit strange to show a non-Pixar short in front of their film, that doesn’t mean we didn’t love it! Find out how Laughing Place rated this short in Alex’s official review.
