Phineas And Ferb: Star Wars
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
