The Simpsons are set to collide with classic Disney characters in an upcoming short film.
The animated short, titled ‘The Simpsons in Plusaversary’, will be released exclusively on Disney+ on November 12 to coincide with Disney+ Day.
An official synopsis reads: “The Disney+ Day celebration is headed to Springfield in ‘The Simpsons in Plusaversary!’ In the new short, The Simpsons host a Disney+ Day party and everyone is on the list… except Homer.
“With friends from across the service and music fit for a Disney princess, Plusaversary is Springfield’s event of the year.”
So @TheSimpsons threw us a party and things got… Goofy. Celebrate #DisneyPlusDay with the all-new short, The Simpsons in Plusaversary, streaming November 12 only on #DisneyPlus. pic.twitter.com/Xs8mAtBM7Y

This isn’t Springfield’s first crossover short, with The Simpsons clashing with Star Wars on ‘Maggie Simpson In The Force Awakens From Its Nap’ and Marvel on ‘The Simpsons: The Good, The Bart, And The Loki’.
Disney+ Day is set to feature a number of new premieres on the streaming service, including Frozen shorts, Pixar’s Ciao Alberto spin-off short from Luca, the second season of The World According to Jeff Goldblum, a Boba Fett history special and the streaming debut of Shang Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings.
In NME’s four-star review, Shang Chi is described as a “smart and satisfying superhero romp that suggests Marvel is nowhere near ready to relinquish its hold on the genre”.
