Phineas and Ferb Join the Rebels in Star Wars (Video Review)



The youngsters will have a blast watching the newest Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars now on Disney DVD. Revitalizing the classic space adventure with their adolescent comedy, the popular television cartoon series by Disney is a hoot. And, the DVD Includes Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars full-length adventure along with five added episodes. There’s a special carbonite keychain of Perry in the box for the serious Phineas and Ferb fans and replicates Han Solo’s encrustation by Jabba the Hutt in Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back.

The series follows Phineas and Ferb as they arrive at Tatooine and meet up with Luke Skywalker. Unexpectedly the plans for the Death Star fall into the hands of the two and find themselves up against the evil Darthenshmirtz. But Darthenshmirtz has plans to try and get his plans back causing a battle for freedom in the Galaxy. Candace, Buford and Baljeet have joined the Empire to catch rebels, but find themselves on sock detail.

The animated adventure also has all the star fighters, Star Wars characters, R2-D2, C-3PO, storm troopers, and other Star Wars elements that are featured in Star Wars IV: A New Hope. Even Perry gets into the action helping Leia by getting the Death Star CD of the plans to Phineas and Ferb.

There’s more on the DVD including several adventures from the Phineas and Ferb show.
“For Ice Only” finds Phineas and Ferb making an ice rink for hockey in the back yard.

Included in the DVD box is a keychain of Perry-In- Carbonite much like Han Solo ended up when Jabba the Hutt punished him in Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back. It’s actually a very cool memento of the clever Platypus.
