Production

Development

When The Simpsons was added to Disney+, co-creator and executive producer James L. Brooks had suggested the creation of a series of short films in which the Simpsons would "invade the rest of Disney+" as a way to promote The Simpsons and reach viewers who may not have been familiar with the series.[3] By April 2021, which was the end of production on the first short, The Force Awakens from Its Nap, executive producer Al Jean felt the then-upcoming Marvel Studios series Loki would be a good candidate for the next crossover short and was hopeful to get Tom Hiddleston to reprise his role as Loki.[3][1] In June 2021, The Good, the Bart, and the Loki was announced, with Hiddleston attached.[2] The short's title is a parody of the Sergio Leone film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966),[1] and was directed by David Silverman.[3]

Writing

Jean felt choosing which Springfield residents would be which members of the Avengers was "the most fun thing". Lisa Simpson was chosen to become Thor as a reference to Natalie Portman's Jane Foster becoming Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), with Jean noting the parallels between Thor and Loki and Lisa and Bart Simpson were "pretty clear". The creative team had hoped to include a cameo from Stan Lee, but were dissuaded by Marvel Studios who informed them they no longer feature Lee in cameos following his death.[3] The team also wanted to include a "ridiculous amount of post-credit sequences for a four-minute short".[4] The post-credits scene from Loki was based only on the first episode of the series, with the team having a week to complete it and add it to the film.[3][1]

Casting

Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki in the short.[2] Marvel helped the Simpsons team get Hiddleston "on board", who recorded his part remotely in England. Regular Simpsons voice actors Dan Castellaneta, Nancy Cartwright, and Yeardley Smith reprise their roles as Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson, and Lisa Simpson, respectively, while Maurice LaMarche voices Odin, and Dawnn Lewis voices Ravonna Renslayer.[1]

Reception

Max Marriner at GameRant gave the short 2 out of 5 stars, saying it "embodies The Walt Disney Company at its coldest and most corporate" and was disappointed it did not feature any of the series' "signature snappy satire and absurdity", calling the humor "tired and drab". He did enjoy the art in the credits and the Simpsons design of Loki, but ultimately felt The Good, the Bart, and the Loki lacked the same passion Marvel Studios gave to their projects.[6] In April 2022, Rich Knight of CinemaBlend ranked The Good, the Bart, and the Loki second on their list of The Simpsons shorts, believing it to be funnier than The Force Awakens from Its Nap and called the several mid-credits scenes the short's best part.[7]
