This Friday sees the debut of the Marvel/Disney animated crossover Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel.
A Phineas and Ferb Star Wars crossover was also recently announced as well.
Now some more details on both of the specials have become available.
Speaking with Wired, Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh let it be known that the Marvel heroes lose their powers in Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel.
Iron Man can’t pick up Thor’s hammer,” said Povenmire. “We [originally] had them switching powers, so we had him going around with the hammer and [Marvel was] like, no, you can’t do that. Wielding Mjolnir is about responsibility; it’s not about power.”
“And then we took that conversation verbatim and put it exactly into the show,” Marsh said
And regarding the Phineas and Ferb Star Wars animated special, we learn that it will be featured during Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, that Candance becomes a Storm Trooper and Dr. Doofenshmirtz joins the Dark Side of The Force!
We find Phineas and Ferb living on the next moisture farm over from Luke Skywalker on the planet Tatooine. They end up with the plans for blowing up the Death Star, and have to get them into the hands of the Rebel Alliance.
Tattletale Candace joins the Stormtroopers. And Danville’s mad scientist Dr. Doofenshmirtz (voiced by Povenmire) appears as Darth Enshmirtz.
“The lowest of the Darths,” Povenmire says, slipping into character. “The force is … really weak with me. I gotta work on that.”
Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel airs this Friday at 8pm ET on Disney.
