Springfield’s number one family, the Simpsons, paid homage to Star Wars this year in the form of a new animated short. In Maggie Simpson in “The Force Awakens From Its Nap”, the youngest Simpson finds herself in a Star Wars-themed daycare centre and among its staff is a familiar-looking Togruta who has zero patience for disobedient younglings but, thankfully, uses far less extreme methods of keeping kids in check than her former master did.
Directed by David Silverman, this delightful three-minute animated short is perfect for Star Wars fans of all ages and is jam-packed with amusing visual gags and playful jabs at the beloved space-fantasy franchise. You might find yourself pausing and replaying certain scenes in order to catch all the fun Easter eggs scattered throughout the short.
So be sure to add Maggie Simpson in “The Force Awakens From Its Nap” to your watchlist this Star Wars Day. You won’t regret it!
Official synopsis: “In a daycare far, far away… but still in Springfield, Maggie is on an epic quest for her stolen pacifier. 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.”
Maggie Simpson in “The Force Awakens From Its Nap” is streaming now, exclusively on Disney+.
