My family is huge Phineas & Ferb fans, so we were extremely excited to hear the announcement that the premiere of the Disney Channel original Movie, “Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension” is set to debut Friday August 5 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel and Saturday, August 13 (10:00am., ET/PT) on Disney XD!
I’m sure most of you are familiar with Phineas and Ferb if you have a Tween in your house, since the Disney’s Emmy Award-winning animated hit series has ranked #1 among Tweens for the past three years. However, if you have never heard of the cartoon its about two stepbrothers who seem to always be on summer vacation and want to make each 104 days of it spectacular . The brothers are continuously inventing and building some strange contraption and striving to outsmart their jealous older sister Candace who’s objective is to get them in trouble with their mom. Meanwhile, their seemingly mindless, but actual clever family pet platypus, named Perry hides as suave secret crime fighting agent P and is saving the planet from destruction as he battles the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz. The cartoon is fantastic and hugely entertaining!
“Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension” Synopsis
“The story begins on a summer afternoon in Danville. While celebrating the anniversary of getting their beloved pet, Perry, imaginative stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb are catapulted into Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s Evil Inc., where they encounter a machine that opens portals into other dimensions. Phineas and Ferb travel to Alternate-Danville, the eerily familiar dimension resembling their home in the Tri-State area. There, they come face to face with their alternate egos, while their faithful pet Perry reveals a secret of his own.
In Alternate-Danville they encounter the sinister Dr. Doofenshmirtz2, who has successfully managed to reign over the gloomy universe, forbidding all things summer. Phineas and Ferb team up with Isabella2 and an underground group called the Resistance, led by Candace2, who together help open up a window back home.
Unfortunately Dr. Doofenshmirtz2 and his sentinel of robots follow the kids back home and threaten to take over the real Danville. Phineas and Ferb get a resurgence of hope with help from Agent P and a key that holds the secret to usurping Dr. Doofenshmirtz2 and his army. Meanwhile, the Resistance seizes an opportunity to restore order, happiness and summer back in their home. Even though everything hangs in the balance, including Perry’s future fate with Phineas and Ferb, everybody must focus on the task at hand before Dr. Doofenshmirtz2 unleashes true havoc on the Tri-State Area.
