Phineas And Ferb: Star Wars

SFX - - Rated dvd & blu-ray -

Re­lease Date: OUT NOW!

2014 | U | DVD/ down­load Af­ter Space­balls, Troops, Fam­ily Guy: Blue Har­vest and Robot Chicken: Star Wars you’d think the uni­verse had run dry of Star Wars gags.

Watch­ing this lat­est skit from Dis­ney Chan­nel toon Phineas And Ferb only serves to re­in­Force that sus­pi­cion. The show, a kind of Fam­ily- Friendly Guy with a cult fol­low­ing, does bring two in­no­va­tions to the ta­ble: the toon’s char­ac­ters are in­serted into the plot of Episode IV Rosencrantz and Guilden­stern- style, hav­ing their own, par­al­lel adventure. Plus: mu­si­cal- style song and dance num­bers. AT- AT’s en­ter­tain­ment!

It’s mildly fun, but re­lies too heav­ily on the show’s own run­ning gags to ap­peal much be­yond Phineas And Ferb fans.

Ex­tras: Five fur­ther episodes. Dave Golder
