First Marvel, now Star Wars.  

Announced today at Comic Con, Disney animated hit series Phineas and Ferb is planing another company-wide crossover, this time with Lucasfilm. The series creators are palnning "an epic ode to Star Wars" now in production.  

A one hour event episode will premiere next year on Disney Channel and Disney XD.  According to the press release, "It places the characters of Phineas and Ferb in the same space and time as the world of Star Wars.     

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 studio revealed the episodes plotline: 

The 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.

After meeting Spider-man and Thor, visiting Tatooine and Storm Troopers... what's next for Phineas and Ferb? The Muppets

    So much stuff about crossovers lately. Even Family Guy and The Simpsons are crossing over next year. Will this become a big trend in animation? Who knows.

    Also Disney related, the latest Mickey Mouse cartoon has been posted online on YouTube.

    Cheers!

    Actually, they already did the Muppets in one of their live-action/flash animation "Take 5" segments. Personally, I was hoping they do a cross-over with a certain duck with "the cutest dispostion". I was hoping for this "organic" cross-over long before the Marvel one was announced.

    Yes, it was. I was reffering to my hypothetical idea of a crossover in my last sentence.

    Wasn't the Marvel one announced before the Star Wars acquisition?

  • DarylT | July 20, 2013 3:05 AMReply

    Well Family Guy already did it.

    Well, Robot Chicken did it before Family Guy did. ;)

    I'll wait to see how this turns out, but I'll probably form an opinion of the Marvel special first, which I will watch (the fact Wander Over Yonder premieres/previews after it gives me another reason to watch it).
