In the Season 3 premiere of” Rick And Morty ,” which aired back in April, Rick tells the alien comprising him captive, Cornvelious Daniel, about the magical chicken McNugget Szechuan Sauce that McDonald’s released for a limited time in the late 1990 s to promote the Disney movie” Mulan .”
” I want that Mulan McNugget sauce, Morty ,” mentions Rick at the end of the first episode.” That’s my series arc, Morty! If it takes nine seasons !”
Well, it won’t take nine seasons, because McDonald’s came through in glorious way. They sent it to one of the show’s inventors to celebrate the new episodes of” Rick And Morty” airing tonight.
Kudos to McDonald’s , not only for living in a dimension where it’s always 1998 merely to bring back the Szechuan sauce, but also crafting a spectacular letter to creator — and voice of both Rick and Morty — Justin Roiland.
But devotees shouldn’t worry about being left out. McDonald’s chef expressed the view that” a few luck fans will likewise get to experience the beauty ,” and then tweeted this photo out early Sunday.
So it’s possible we’re in for a more widespread, albeit restriction, release of that glorious Szechuan sauce.
New episodes of” Rick And Morty” air tonight on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim at 11:30 p.m. ET.
