Award-winning siblings, Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, will appear in a new The Simpsons short titled, When Billie Met Lisa. The all-new short will premiere exclusively on Disney Plus.
On Thursday, April 14th, the Happier Than Ever singer announced on Twitter her new guest appearance in The Simpsons’ new short film. The short, When Billie Met Lisa, features the artist, her brother and singer-songwriter FINNEAS, and Lisa Simpson.
In the new The Simpsons short, Lisa Simpson is discovered by chart-topping artists Billie Elish and FINNEAS while searching for a quiet place to practice her saxophone. The Ocean Eyes singer then invites Lisa to her studio for an unforgettable jam session.
Billie Eilish and FINNEAS on Disney Plus
This exciting news and premiere date will overlap with Billie’s Coachella performances. The music festival—which is now back after getting cancelled for two years due to Coronavirus concerns—schedules the Grammy-winning artist as a Saturday headliner for both weekends. Billie is not unfamiliar with the Coachella stage since she has already performed at the music festival in 2019. However, her performance this year will make history by becoming the youngest artist to headline Coachella at the age of 20 years old. Meanwhile, FINNEAS will also take the music festival stage on Sunday, April 17 and 24.
Billie Eilish’s new crossover short film with the Simpsons may seem surprising to some, but the singer’s partnership with the streaming service is nothing new. In 2021, Billie made her debut on Disney Plus with her concert film, Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, where she performed songs from her latest studio album. Moreover, she is not the only one with an ongoing partnership with Disney. In the recently-released Pixar movie, Turning Red, FINNEAS and Billie wrote an original song featured in the movie. The song “Nobody Like U,” from a fictional boyband called 4*Town, became a hit with the Disney/Pixar fans. And speaking of Coachella, FINNEAS included the song in his Coachella set.
