Step-brothers Phineas and Ferb will appear as residents of Tatooine
who are thrust into a galactic rebellion when the plans for blowing up
the Death Star accidentally fall into their hands.
While promoting their upcoming crossover with the Marvel universe, Phineas and Ferb creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh told EW that the Star Wars tribute takes place during the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.
“All of [the plot of A New Hope] happens exactly the way it did, but we find out that Phineas and Ferb are Luke’s neighbors on Tatooine and become embroiled in the adventure,” Marsh said. “Our story all takes place as if you had a slightly wider shot, you could see our characters. Or if you just waited around five minutes after this [Star Wars] storyline, our characters would pass through, which was really really fun to do.”
