New ‘Simpsons’ short ‘Welcome to the Club’ hints at a Disney villains crossover

Another new short from The Simpsons universe will be introducing at least one of Disney Animation’s most beloved baddies to Springfield, as revealed in the official poster released. The Simpsons: Welcome to the Club is slated to debut as a streaming exclusive for Disney+ Day on 8 September.

The official logline reads: Heart set on becoming a princess, Lisa Simpson is surprised to learn being bad might be more fun.

The poster shows Lisa (voiced by Yeardley Smith in the long-running series) enjoying a Thelma & Louise moment (complete with teal ’66 Ford Thunderbird) riding shotgun with Ursula, the be-tentacled sea witch from Disney’s The Little Mermaid (1989).

Emmy winning actress Pat Carroll, who provided the voice of Ursula for the John Musker and Ron Clements-directed animated pic, passed away in July at age 95. It was not revealed whether Carroll recorded for Welcome to the Club; cast and crew details are yet to be announced.

Welcome to the Club joins other Simpsons specials on Disney+, including When Billie Met Lisa, starring Billie Eilish; Star Wars-inspired The Force Awakens from Its Nap; and Plusaversary, which was released in celebration of the streamer’s first birthday.
