Maggie Simpson in Playdate with Destiny

Maggie Simpson in Playdate with Destiny ★★½

This Simpson's animated short featuring a romance for Maggie came and left with no fanfare before Onward played. It was cute, but forgettable. Actually got to see it twice because there was a screw-up in the theater issuing the correct 3D glasses for Onward (this short is not in 3D, which was a bummer).

I stopped regularly watching The Simpsons many years ago, but from time to time enjoy checking in on the famous adult animated family. My favorite Simpson stories tend to focus on side characters like Barney and major events happening in Springfield (the gambling one is a particular favorite).

Now that Disney owns 20th Century Fox, maybe we'll get more Simpsons tie-ins to other Disney owned studios, but we'll see. How about a Star Wars Mandalorian Simpsons short? Baby Yoda could rock it with the Simpsons family.

We can always dream!

This short is fine as a quick diversion, but can't say I recommend it. Merely OK.
