Since the announcement at San Diego Comic Con last year, fans of the hit series Phineas and Ferb have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Star Wars cross-over episode, which only gave an official release date a few weeks ago.
Check out the trailer below:
Unlike many specials that take their own characters and put them in the shoes of Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Han Solo, etc, the Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars special will be taking a side-story, put their own characters in the events of Star Wars: A New Hope as the events of the film are happening around them.
"Dan and Swampy have put their unique spin on the iconic events in A New Hope, and have created fun ways for the characters to interact within the Star Wars universe," said Eric Coleman, senior vp original series at Disney Television Animation. -Hollywood Reporter
