THE PLOT THUS FAR
A couple of summers ago in a galaxy far, far away, Phineas and Ferb are happily basking in the glow of Tatooine’s twin suns — until plans for the Death Star accidentally fall into their hands, thrusting them (and Agent P) into a galactic rebellion and an epic struggle of good versus evil in PHINEAS AND FERB: STAR WARS(TM). Will Phineas and Ferb be able to resist the Dark Side? Will Stormtrooper Candace finally bust a Rebel? Can Agent P stop Darthenshmirtz from using his Force-powered “Sith-Inator”? Featuring five additional episodes for over two hours of action-packed fun, this mind-blowing, intergalactic adventure is a blast for all ages. May the Ferb be with you… always.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars” is an attempt to retell the Star Wars Saga framed by an insanely popular kids’ shows. While too many animated shows want to be mean spirited with the material, I appreciate honest enthusiasm for the Skywalkers. If you can’t have fun with the material, then why do it? Plus, I miss seeing a Star Wars homage that wasn’t plagued by self referential humor. George Lucas looks like he has a neck goiter and wears too much flannel. I get it, Seth Green!
I love how the Disney umbrella has opened so wide. Phineas and Ferb has managed to mix their chocolate with the Marvel and Star Wars peanut butter. The end result is a perfect mix that shows kids that they can love different things and it can help build bigger and better worlds. Plus, you’ve got the Agent P action. That’s worth more than most of the Prequels.
The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty strong. The transfer is adequate for standard definition. Plus, the Dolby 5.1 track doesn’t get a ton of back channel action. That being said, it’s nearly three hours of cartoons for your kids to enjoy. I’d recommend picking it up.
