The first piece of content from The Simpsons under the ownership of Disney is finally on its way. Creator Matt Groening announced that a new animated short called “Playdate with Destiny” will arrive on Disney+ tomorrow.

According to a press release:

“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?”

“Playdate with Destiny” originally released in theatres before Disney and Pixar’s film Onward earlier this year. Maggie’s latest animated short builds on the success of The Simpsons‘ 2012 Academy Award-nominated film, Maggie Simpson in “The Longest Daycare,” which will also drop on the platform later this month. Recently, The Simpsons released an episode parodying Disney’s Avengers Endgame and spoiler culture in general.

Catch The Simpsons’ “Playdate with Destiny” April 10 on Disney+.

In related news, Disney+ recently hit 50 million subscribers.
