Phineas and Ferb Feature Moves Forward

ON

Earlier this year, word broke that the popular Disney Channel animated series “Phineas and Ferb” could make the move to the big screen. Now, Deadline reports that a contract has been signed and that, in addition to continuing the series and developing the feature, series creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh will also develop a pilot for a brand new show, likely spinning off from existing “Phineas and Ferb” characters.

The show, which launched in 2007, follows the adventures of two stepbrothers, their sister, Candace and their pet platypus, Perry (who happens to also be a secret agent in an eternal conflict with the villainous mad scientist Dr. Doofenshmirtz).

Earlier reports indicated that the feature film is planned as a mix of live-action and animation.
