The streamer is taking advantage of the day to release new Star Wars content (as one does), with its brand new original animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch dropping on Tuesday with new episodes rolling out weekly. Plus there’s a collection of Star Wars-themed content including behind-the-scenes looks at the movie sets and props and a new Simpsons short, “Maggie Simpson in ‘The Force Awakens From Its Nap.’ The new promotional short is the first of several from “The Simpsons” that Disney+ will release throughout the year paying tribute to the service’s marquee brands and titles.

In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.
