In “Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe,” currently in production for the new streaming service, stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb travel across the galaxy to rescue their suster Candace, “who has been abducted by aliens and has found utopia in a far-off planet, free of pesky little brothers.”
“Phineas and Ferb” creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh are back as executive producers on the movie, while also reprising their roles are Ashley Tisdale as Candace Flynn; Vincent Martella as Phineas Flynn; Caroline Rhea as their mom, Linda; Dee Bradley Baker as Perry the Platypus; Alyson Stoner as Isabella; Maulik Pancholy as Baljeet; Bobby Gaylor as Buford; Olivia Olson as Vanessa; Tyler Mann as Carl; and Povenmire and Marsh as Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz and Major Monogram, respectively. David Errigo Jr. joins the cast as Ferb Fletcher.
This represents the second “Phineas and Ferb” movie, following 2011’s “Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension.” More recently, most of the characters have been seen via crossovers with Povenmire’s and Marsh’s follow-up Disney series, “Milo Murphy’s Law.”
During its original run, “Phineas and Ferb” ran from 2007 to 2015, for approximately 126 episodes, as well as seven one-hour specials in addition to the movie. The show ended its original run with Candace essentially saving the day after a Dr. Doofenshmirtz invention threatened to repeat the day over and over in a loop, in an homage to “Groundhog Day.” It’s also not the first time Candace has spent time in space, as the gang spent the series run (which took place over one summer) building a rollercoaster, traveling to outer space, playing with time travel, discovering the lost city of Atlantis, opening the hippest restaurant in the Tri-State area and saving the world with the help of Marvel superheroes.
The full run of “Phineas and Ferb,” currently available to anyone with a cable or satellite subscription on the DisneyNow app, will also be seen on Disney Plus when that streaming service launches on Nov. 12. Here’s a first look at the movie’s logo:
