That last short consisted of The Simpsons entering the galaxy of Star Wars itself and was titled Maggie Simpson in the Force Awakens From its Nap. The debut of this first short coincided with Star Wars Day as a means for fans to celebrate the beloved franchise and also gain some new content to look forward to.
