Disney+ Announces Loki-Themed Simpsons Parody Starring Tom Hiddleston
Disney+ is launching a Loki-themed parody starring Tom Hiddleston that recruits The Simpsons into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Good, The Bart, and The Loki premieres Wednesday, July 7 and sees Tom Hiddleston voice Loki, who is banished from Asgard and finds himself in Springfield, home of The Simpsons. The God of Mischief will team up with Bart Simpson that pays tribute to the MCU.
The key art for The Good, The Bart, and The Loki is inspired by the poster for Avengers: Endgame, with various characters from The Simpsons representing members of Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Some of the familiar characters include Loki taking center stage in the place of Tony Stark; Bart is representing Thanos; Lisa is Thor, the God of Thunder; Milhouse is Hawkeye; Ned Flanders is Ant-Man; Ralph Wiggum is Hulk; Barney is Iron Man; and Carl is Nick Fury.
This is the second Simpsons short to highlight some of Disney's marquee brands. A previous entry was the Star Wars-themed short Maggie Simpson in 'The Force Awakens from Its Nap'.
Loki follows Thor's unruly, adopted brother as he jumps throughout human history as an unlikely influencer on historical events.
Loki stars Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, Tara Strong as Miss Minutes, Eugene Cordero as Casey and Sasha Lane as Hunter C-20, with Sophia Di Martino and Richard E. Grant in undisclosed roles. New episodes premiere Wednesdays on Disney+.
