First Look at the STAR WARS PHINEAS AND FERB Episode
This summer is was announced that Disney would being introducing the Star Wars universe into the world of the kids animated series Phineas and Ferb. We now have our first look at the storyboard art from Kyle Menke for the episode they are developing.
Series creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh previously offered some details on the crossover, saying,
"All of [the plot of A New Hope] happens exactly the way it did, but we find out that Phineas and Ferb are Luke’s neighbors on Tatooine and become embroiled in the adventure. Our story all takes place as if you had a slightly wider shot, you could see our characters. Or if you just waited around five minutes after this [Star Wars] storyline, our characters would pass through, which was really really fun to do."
They went on to talk about the the voices of the Star Wars characters, saying,
"The Star Wars actors are now all 40 years older, so they don’t sound quite the same, so we’re trying to find people who sound like they did when they were young. The guy we had come in to do Harrison Ford sounded so much like young Harrison Ford. It was like, if you didn’t look up you thought, ‘We have Harrison Ford in the booth!’"
They also teased that there will be some cameos from "a few fun folks that also really fit in in a weird way with the whole Star Wars universe."
Phineas and Ferb's Star Wars tribute will air in 2014, and I'm sure this episode will be a lot of fun.
