The Simpsons drops new surprise special on Disney Plus focussing on Maggie

THE Simpsons has dropped a new surprise special which focusses on everyone's favourite yellow toddler today.

The new animated short film, called Playdate with Destiny, follows Maggie and her journey's around Springfield with her new beau Hudson, and it is now ready and available to watch on Disney+.

The new instalment comes after the Academy Award-nominated film, The Longest Daycare, which is due to hit our screens on Disney+ in the coming weeks.

Some of you may have already seen Maggie's crazy adventures in Playdate with Destiny as it was shown in cinemas before screenings of Disney's Onward movie.

The toddler embarks on some new and exciting adventures with her new pal Hudson and soon falls head over heels for the young tot.

Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons, took to social media to write a short note about the special surprise.

He wrote: "Greetings friends! Earlier this year we made a nifty little short film called 'playdate with destiny'.

"The response was so gratifying we wanted everyone to see it at home.

"So here ya go - stream it starting on April 10th on Disney+!"

Last month it was revealed that Disney+ UK launched 600 episodes of the much-loved cartoon for everybody to watch and enjoy on its service.

The new on-demand streaming service offers subscribers unlimited access to its mammoth catalogue, which includes over 500 films and more than 350 TV series.

But despite the good news, fans were left raging after they decided to cut out classic jokes from old episodes and reduce the screen ratio, which affected some of the punchlines.

Fans took to Twitter to slam the changes, with one asking: "is the Simpsons aspect ratio fixed yet? Waiting to re-subscribe until it’s fixed. As soon as the ratio is fixed I will pay for my year. If it isn’t fixed yet, do we at least have a date?"

Another disappointed fan posted: "hey. Why do The Simpsons early episodes look weird? I heard about aspect ratio issues but the whole animation seems to wobble. Strange and off-putting."

"Disney+ off to a good start by making classic Simpsons unwatchable by cropping to 16:9 instead of it’s original 4:3 aspect ratio @DisneyPlusUK #DisneyPlusUK,” raged a third fan.

Playdate with Destiny is available to watch on Disney+ from today. 

Customers in the UK can subscribe to the Disney+ streaming service for the introductory annual price of £49.99
