Family Channel  travels to a galaxy far, far away this summer with the premiere of the new crossover special Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars. Debuting Friday, August 8 at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT, the perilous parody takes place in a parallel universe during Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and follows the spontaneous stepbrothers as they embark on an epic adventure across the galaxy. English actor, writer and comedian, Simon Pegg, guest stars as the voice of C-3PO and Candace’s Commanding Officer, along with MythBusters hosts, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, who voice members of the Empire.
In the extended episode, Phineas and Ferb are living just one moisture farm over from Luke Skywalker on the planet of Tatooine when R2-D2 and the Death Star plans inadvertently fall into their speeder. With the fate of the galaxy thrust upon their shoulders, they hire pilot Isabella, Han Solo’s rival, to help them return the plans to the Rebel Alliance. Complicating matters, low-ranking Stormtrooper Candace is intent on busting the Rebels and chases them across the galaxy in hopes of retrieving the Death Star plans.
Meanwhile, intergalactic chaos erupts on the Death Star when Perry the Rebelpus is trapped in carbonite while trying to stop Darthenshmirtz from using his new “Sith-inator.” The saga takes a turn for the worse when Ferb is accidentally caught in the crossfire of the “Sith-inator,” changing him into a full-fledged Sith and leading to an epic first-ever battle between the brothers.
Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars all-star voice cast includes Vincent Martella as Phineas; Ashley Tisdale as Stormtrooper Candace; Thomas Brodie-Sangster as Ferb; Caroline Rhea as mom Linda Flynn-Fletcher; Richard O’Brien as dad Lawrence Fletcher; Dee Bradley Baker as Perry the Rebelpus; Alyson Stoner as pilot Isabella; Jeff “Swampy” Marsh as Major Hologram; Dan Povenmire as Darthenshmirtz; Tyler Mann as Carl2-D2; John Viener as Norm-3Pop; Maulik Pancholy as Stormtrooper Baljeet; and Bobby Gaylor as Stormtrooper Buford.
The crossover special headlines the second night of Family’s previously announced Out Of This World programming event, complete with brand new space-themed episodes of Liv and Maddie, Girl Meets World and Jessie, beginning at 5 p.m. ET/PT.
The saga continues at Family.ca  with the addition of two exciting new games. Kids can help Phineas and Ferb make amazing machines to collect moisture from broken vapourators in “Droid Masters,” or starting Friday, join Agent P on a mission to infiltrate the Death Star and defeat Darthenshmirtz and his Normtrooper minions in “Agent P Rebel Spy.” Phineas and Ferb: Star Warswill be available on Family OnDemand beginning August 15 and makes its Disney XD debut on Sunday, August 17 at 6 p.m. ET.
