Comic-Con: Disney Announces ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Phineas and Ferb’ Crossover

Add “May the Ferb be with you” to the list of relevant “Star Wars” puns, as Disney announced a crossover between the famed movie franchise and their popular cartoon, “Phineas and Ferb.”

Show creators and “Star Wars” fans Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh made the announcement today at San Diego’s Comic Con. The hour-long special episode will place the wacky main characters of the kids show in the same timeline and place as “Star Wars.”

Phineas and Ferb,” which centers on two stepbrothers who take on grand projects during summer vacation, has done well in ratings since beginning six years ago, being the #1 animated series for kids 6-11 in primetime. In the special “Star Wars” episode, their carefree existence on “Star Wars” planet Tatooine will be disturbed when plans to destroy the Death Star unwittingly fall into their hands.

Disney has been having fun with their $4 billion purchase of LucasFilm, acquired last year. Along with producing “Star Wars 7,” they have released other “Star Wars” crossovers of existing properties. They’ve unveiled pins combing characters from their “Cars” universe with “Star Wars” characters, and figurines of “The Muppets” doing the same thing.

Fans of the popular Square Enix “Kingdom Hearts” video game series, which features Disney worlds and characters, have speculated a “Star Wars” addition to the upcoming third game, and game designer Tetsuya Nomura has expressed interest in the idea.

The “Star Wars” episode will air next year on the Disney Channel and Disney XD.
