Releasing at July 7, 2021 on Disney+
The Simpsons: The Good, the Bart, and the Loki, or simply The Good, the Bart, and the Loki, is an American animated short film based on the television series The Simpsons produced by Gracie Films and 20th Television Animation for Disney+. It is the fourth short film in The Simpsons franchise, and the second promotional short after The Force Awakens from Its Nap (2021) that ties in with Disney+’s brands and titles. The Good, the Bart, and the Loki is directed by David Silverman and celebrates the Marvel Cinematic Universe, particularly its television series Loki, with Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. The short was released on July 7, 2021, on Disney+, alongside the fifth episode of Loki.
Odin banishes Loki to Springfield, where he lands at the Simpson’s home. Bart Simpson welcomes him inside, and while at dinner, Loki banishes Lisa Simpson to Asgard. There, Lisa comes across Mjolnir, granting her to powers of Thor. Lisa returns to Springfield with the “Springfield Avengers” (other citizens dressed as various Marvel Cinematic Universe characters) to exile Loki, who has since switched guises with Bart. Later that night, while in Bart’s room, Loki is happy to finally be part of a functional family.
In a mid-credits scene, Loki disguised as Moe Szyslak gives patrons at Moe’s Tavern free drinks. In two post-credits scenes, Ralph Wiggum as the Hulk smashes Loki similarly to a scene from The Avengers (2012), and Loki stands before Ravonna Renslayer at the Time Variance Authority, where she finds him guilty of his various crimes, such as crossing over to the Simpsons universe.
