This will be the second Disney Plus short that combines the characters from The Simpson with another popular company property, after it debuted earlier this year The Force Awakens From Its Nap, Star Wars-themed material.
Formerly the producer of The Simpsons, Al Jean, He had already shown his interest in doing a crossover event between the Springfield and Marvel characters, so, without a doubt, the next short will be a careful and well-planned work that will pay a worthy tribute to both properties.
I won’t say what it is, but it’s also very exciting in different ways. The only goal is to walk through the mosaics of Disney Plus, from Star Wars to Nat Geo and plant our seed everywhere. I am a huge Marvel fan. We have dealt with them in a couple of ways. We have parodied them a lot. We’ve even had a couple of them, including Kevin Feige, on the show. So our relationship with them has been fantastic. Just like I’ve been inspired by Star Wars for 40 years, I grew up reading Marvel Comics. And I still have a lot. If someone told me that I would grow up to write for Star Wars and Marvel, I would be very happy.
