The adventuring stars of Disney’s hit animated series Phineas and Ferb are heading to a galaxy far, far away: A special Star Wars-themed episode of the musical-comedy series is currently in production, announced at by show creators and executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The one hour event episode will premiere next year on Disney Channel and Disney XD, placing the characters of Phineas and Ferb in the same space and time as the world of Star Wars.
Povenmire said, “May the ‘Ferb’ be with you and with all of us who for decades have dreamt of a chance to work with the great characters and stories of Star Wars.”
The episode’s story begins a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away — in summer. Phineas and Ferb are living happily on Tatooine, just one moisture farm over from Luke Skywalker. They love simply hanging out and creating new adventures under the twin suns, however, they find themselves thrust into a global rebellion when the plans for blowing up the Death Star accidentally fall into their hands.
Now that fate has suddenly pulled them into the fight for freedom, they must go in search of a pilot who can take them to the Rebels so they can hand over the plans. Complicating matters, Candace — the boys’ sister — has a Stormtrooper-like intent on “busting rebels” who chase Phineas and Ferb across the galaxy in hopes of retrieving the Death Star plans.
Meanwhile, back on the Death Star, Dr. Darth Enshmirtz, a low level Darth, has created a Force-powered “Sith-inator” that he plans to use against the Rebel Alliance. Agent P, working undercover for the Rebellion, is dispatched to stop him, but quickly gets trapped in carbonite. Then, things take a startling turn when Ferb is accidentally hit by the full blast of Dr. Darth Enschmirtz’s “inator” and becomes…an evil Sith.
The Caped Crusader will return to television screens this summer when Beware the Batman premieres on Cartoon Network Saturday, July 13 at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) as part of DC Nation. Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.
A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordswoman Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation (WBA), this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.”
Starring Anthony Ruivivar (Banshee) as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Beware The Batman boasts a stellar voice cast with JB Blanc (The Count of Monte Cristo) as Alfred and Sumalee Montano (ER) as Katana. Lending voices to the villains are Wallace Langham (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as Anarky, Grey DeLisle (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Magpie, Udo Kier (Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc.) as Mr. Toad, Lance Reddick (Fringe) as Ra’s al Ghul and Brian George (The Big Bang Theory) as Professor Pyg.
Beware the Batman is the latest series based on characters from DC Comics to be added to DC Nation, Cartoon Network’s programming block on Saturday mornings. It will be followed by Teen Titans Go! at 10:30 a.m. and joined by all-new animated shorts.
Disney is going back to basics for its latest Disney Channel series, titled simply, “Mickey Mouse.” The shorts began airing on Friday, June 28, on the Disney Channel, Disney.com and other Disney-branded platforms.
19 new shorts will air this year and feature other iconic Disney characters, including Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto and Minnie Mouse.
Paul Rudish (Dexter’s Laboratory, Sym-Bionic Titan, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic) is executive producing and directing
The new series will feature short adventures starring the company’s mascot getting involved in slapstick hijinks. In a deliberate attempt to get away from the modern look of computer animation, the new Mickey Mouse shorts will be done in traditional 2-D animation and feature a Mickey Mouse styled as he was in the 1930s.
Adding to the retro style, the background designs are inspired by the look of Disney cartoons in the 1950s and ’60s, and it’s said that the production team is paying homage to other Disney icons along the way.
You can watch 4 of the most recent shorts below: Croissant de Triomphe, Yodelberg, No Service and New York Weenie.
Marvel’s Avengers Assemble, a new animated series reuniting some of Marvel’s most iconic Super Heroes—Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Black Widow and newcomer Falcon—premieres Sunday, July 7 on Marvel Universe on Disney XD (11 a.m., ET/PT).
Featuring the team that took the world by storm in Marvel’s The Avengers, Marvel’s Avengers Assemble follows the action-packed adventures of the iconic Super Hero team, the Avengers, as they find a way to put their differences aside and work together to defend the planet from threats no single Super Hero could withstand. The world’s most dangerous Super Villains don’t stand a chance when the Avengers assemble.
One of the Disney Channel’s most popular cartoons, “Phineas and Ferb,” will team up with Marvel’s most popular superheroes later this year in a brand new animated special. Titled “Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel,” the special will air on August 16th on The Disney Channel.
It is described as follows:
In Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk stand powerless after being struck by Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining “inator.” Once the Marvel Super Villains – Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K. – find out that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is responsible for robbing the Super Heroes of their powers, they seek him out and together create mayhem in Danville. Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb do everything they can to restore the Super Heroes’ powers before the evil villains take over the world.
“This is a real Marvel Super Hero operation,” said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television. “It’s an extraordinary opportunity for these two franchises to come together and create an adventure never before seen in the world of Marvel and Disney.”
MONDO worked with BOOM! on a variant cover for Adventure Time #17 to celebrate their Adventure Time/Regular Show Gallery opening last Friday. MONDO decided to use a design from JJ Harrison and below, he talks about his influences and why he did what he did:
“I designed the “Adventure Time” cover to honor the single most important thing in my son’s life–Adventure TIme–and one of the movies that had a tremendous impact on my childhood–E.T. Both center around a boy and his magical companion and the adventures they share together. It was a nice fit. For me, the original E.T. poster evokes a feeling of soaring adventure coupled with a sense of growing up and loss, and I wanted some of that in this piece, as well. I found a subtle way to include a very melancholy Ice King in the image. I feel like no other character from Adventure Time embodies those emotions more than he does.”
You can see photos of the comic HERE.
Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. This exclusive comic book will be available online at a random time on Wednesday, June 26th and it will not be available at comic shops.
Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel will be premiering this summer on the Disney Channel. It’s the first TV cartoon crossover between the House of Mouse and the House of Ideas.
The special features a whole host of characters from both universes: Phineas and Ferb and their platypus pal Perry team up with four of Earth’s mightiest heroes: Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Spider-Man.
The Marvel event promises to feature Marvel villains Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K.
The bad guys come to Danville to battle their superhero rivals, rendered powerless thanks to the nefarious Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.
MONDO announces their next gallery show featuring the amazingly creative and colorful worlds that make up Adventure Time and Regular Show.
After their Adventure Time show last April, they’ve been eager to revisit the Land of Ooo and this time, they’re also featuring work themed around another one of the gallery’s favorite Cartoon Network programs, Regular Show.
The show opens Friday, June 21st with an opening reception from 7PM to 10PM at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX. It will be on display through July 20th.
Making its world debut Tuesday, June 11, 2013, at the Annecy Animation Festival in Annecy, France, is Walt Disney Animation Studios’ never-before-seen short “Get A Horse!” Starring the one and only Mickey Mouse and featuring Walt Disney himself as the voice of the iconic character, this black-and-white, hand-drawn short follows Mickey, his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow as they delight in a musical wagon ride—until Peg-Leg Pete shows up and tries to run them off the road.
