The Simpsons Celebrates Star Wars Day With A New Short Film Featuring Maggie

Maggie is on an epic quest to find her pacifier and she'll face Sith lords, droids, Rebel scum, and more.


As part of Disney's celebration of Star Wars Day--May the 4th--the company produced a new The Simpsons short featuring Maggie. It's called "The Force Awakens from Its Nap," and it will stream on Disney+ beginning tomorrow, May 4.

"In a daycare far, far away… but still in Springfield, Maggie is on an epic quest for her stolen pacifier," reads a line from the movie's description. "Her adventure brings her face-to-face with young Padawans, Sith Lords, familiar droids, Rebel scum, and an ultimate battle against the dark side, in this original short celebrating the Star Wars galaxy."

Based on the key art, it appears Maggie will once again do battle against her nemesis, the evil baby Gerald.

The Force Awakens from Its Nap is just the latest Simpsons short themed around Maggie. It follows The Longest Daycare (2012) and Playdate With Destiny (2020). The Longest Daycare was nominated for an Oscar, but it ultimately lost out to Paperman.

May 4 also marks the premiere of the newest Star Wars animated show, The Bad Batch. Additionally, new specials called Star Wars Biomes and Star Wars Vehicle Flythroughs will debut on Disney+ tomorrow to celebrate the Star Wars holiday, according to Variety.

Star Wars Day is also bringing with it a number of special deals and promotions on media, merch, and more for the sci-fi series. For more, check out GameSpot's roundup of the best Star Wars Day deals.
