We told you earlier this month that the executive producer of The simpsons, Al Jean, teased a new short film inspired by the series heading to Disney+ by the end of the month.

Well, today Billie Eilish revealed on social media that she will be appearing alongside ‘The Simpsons’ family in the upcoming short film ‘When Billie Met Lisa’. The all-new short, featuring OSCAR and GRAMMY award-winning artists Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, will premiere Friday, April 22, exclusively on Disney+.

In “When Billie Met Lisa”, Lisa Simpson is discovered by chart-topping artists Billie Eilish and FINNEAS while looking for a quiet place to practice her saxophone. Billie invites Lisa to her studio for a special jam session she will never forget.

This upcoming release of “The Simpsons” is the fourth in a collection of shorts created exclusively for Disney+ that showcase the service’s flagship brands and most popular content. The previously released Star Wars and Marvel themed shorts “Maggie Simpson in ‘The Force Awakens from Its Nap'” and “The Good, The Bart, and The Loki” are currently available on Disney+.
