An epic ode to Star Wars from the creators of Disney’s animated comedy ‘Phineas and Ferb’ is in production — the one hour event episode will premiere next year on Disney Channel and Disney XD. It places the characters of ‘Phineas and Ferb’ in the same space and time as the world of Star Wars, all with the brilliant comedic perspective that has made the global hit ‘Phineas and Ferb’ the #1 animated TV series for Kids 6-11 in primetime and Tweens across total day for the past five years.
The announcement was made today by Dan Povenmire and Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh, creators and executive producers of ‘Phineas and Ferb’ and ardent Star Wars fans, at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
Povenmire said, ‘May The Ferb Be With You and with all of us who for decades have dreamt of a chance to work with the great characters and stories of Star Wars.’
The event episode’s story begins a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away – in summer. Phineas and Ferb are living happily on Tatooine, just one moisture farm over from Luke Skywalker. They love simply hanging out and creating new adventures under the twin suns but find themselves thrust into a global rebellion when the plans for blowing up the Death Star accidentally fall into their hands.
Now that fate has suddenly pulled them into the fight for freedom, they must go in search of a pilot who can take them to the rebels so they can hand over the plans. Complicating matters, Candace has a Stormtrooper-like intent on ‘busting rebels’ and chases Phineas and Ferb across the galaxy in hopes of retrieving the Death Star plans.
Meanwhile, back on the Death Star, Darth Enshmirtz, a low level Darth, has created a Force-powered ‘Sith-inator’ that he plans to use against the Rebel Alliance. Agent P, working undercover for the Rebellion, is dispatched to stop him, but quickly gets trapped in carbonite. Then, things take a startling turn when Ferb is accidentally hit by the full blast of Dr. Darth Enschmirtz’s ‘-inator’ and becomes an evil Sith.
The voice cast includes: Vincent Martella as Phineas Flynn, Ashley Tisdale as Candace Flynn, Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Ferb Fletcher, Caroline Rhea as mom Linda Flynn-Fletcher, Richard O’Brien as dad Lawrence Fletcher, Dee Bradley Baker as Perry the Platypus, Alyson Stoner as Isabella, Maulik Pancholy as Baljeet, Bobby Gaylor as Buford, Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh as Major Monogram and Emmy Award-winning Dan Povenmire as Darth Enshmirtz.
