Candace Flynn Finally Gets Her Time To Shine In The New "Phineas And Ferb" Movie — Here's Why You Should Watch

Phineas and Ferb really did it all, huh?

This year at Comic-Con@Home, Phineas and Ferb creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh gave us a sneak peek of their upcoming movie Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe.

Here's everything we learned:

1. Candace is the main character and hero of this movie and Ashley Tisdale, who voices Candace, was happy that her character finally got her time to shine.

Dan Povenmire said that after creating 222 episodes, 7 hourlong specials, and a whole other movie they realized Candace was almost always the antagonist of the story, not the hero.

2. All your favorite characters will be back as well, like Baljeet, Buford, Isabella, Jeremy, and Perry the Platypus.

3. According to Vincent Martella, who voices Phineas, the movie is "everything everyone loved about the series," but also introduces new fans to the world of Phineas and Ferb.

4. There are a bunch of brand-new songs featured in the film, and according to Tisdale, "some of the best stuff is in this movie."

5. It opens with a song called "Beautiful Day," sung by Candace.

Povenmire said it was actually the last song they wrote for the movie. In its place was a scene where Candace tried to bust her brother again, but the creators felt like it made Candace seem too harsh. Karey Kirkpatrick, one of the composers from the musical Something Rotten! actually cowrote the song.

6. Povenmire also revealed that this is the first story where the characters are in "actual jeopardy" and the stakes are high.


He said that Candace will be in danger and her brothers have to "find her and bring her back."

7. The movie also places a huge focus on the sibling relationship between Phineas, Ferb, and Candace, and emphasizes the love they have for each other.

Marsh said they wanted to emphasize the love between the boys and Candace because viewers don't usually get to see that side of their relationship in the show.

8. This movie takes place during the same summer as the series does, and Vanessa and Dr. Doofenshmirtz will interact with the kids and even go on the journey with them to save Candace.

9. Because of this, Perry the Platypus will also be forced to go on the adventure, but doing his secret agent work behind-the-scenes.

Isabella will use her Fireside Girls' skills to prove him wrong.

Povenmire and Marsh revealed that Wong plays an Alien Queen and Middleditch plays an alien.

15. Finally, Povenmire revealed that at the end of the movie, Candace has a scene that's so emotional she starts to cry and Ashley's performance was so moving that he was "almost brought to tears."

Disney Channel

"If you watch the movie and don't get a little emotional at that point you're dead inside," said Marsh.

Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe will be available to stream Aug. 28 on Disney+.
