In order to try and end the rampant speculation about the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, allow me to lay out what we actually do know about the movie and its release dates.
- "In the movie, Phineas and Ferb discover that their beloved pet platypus, Perry, is really a secret agent who battles the forces of evil daily. The boys team up with Perry on a grand adventure through a parallel universe where they must ultimately thwart an even more evil version of Dr. Doofenshmirtz."
- "When Phineas and Ferb accidentally help the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz complete his latest creation that will finally take control of the Tri-State Area, they get zapped into a new dimension, where they meet their alternate selves! In this new dimension, Dr. Doofenshmirtz is the leader of the Tri-State Area, and even worse—summer vacation doesn't exist! Will Phineas and Ferb figure out a way to get back to Danville, or will they be stuck in this alternate dimension forever?"
EDIT MAY 29, 2011
- "Just when you thought Phineas and Ferb had done it all (including winning an Emmy® Award), they take their adventures to a whole new dimension in their first full-length movie - "Phineas And Ferb The Movie: Across The 2nd Dimension" - featuring exclusive deleted scenes and all-new bonus only on Disney DVD! When Phineas, Ferb, and Perry follow Dr. Doofenshmirtz through his "Otherdimensionator", they find themselves in an alternate universe where a second, truly evil Dr. Doof rules over his Tristate Area with an army of iron-fisted robots. To save his friends from certain doom, Perry makes the ultimate sacrifice by revealing his secret identity as Agent P. Phineas and Ferb escape, meet their 2nd dimension selves, and begin their own mission to rescue Perry. So begins an epic battle as our heroes try to save their home from the clutches of Evil Dr. Doof... and his sidekick Platyborg! Will Evil Doof succeed and achieve dual world domination? Will Candace finally bust her brothers? Find out in this action-packed, epic adventure - so huge that it crosses over time and space."
Release DateThe movie will be released sometime in Summer 2011.
- Wikipedia & IMDb claim the release date is June 24th. These sites, like this one, are able to be edited by anyone and thus open to the same wild guessing that is happening around here.
- Laura Dickinson, protege to composer Danny Jacob, is on record as claiming that the release date is June 24th, but there is mounting evidence that leads many to believe this is not correct.
- Due to her relatively low-ranking position on the crew, she may not know the exact date and is using the internet date.
- She cites other internet rumors on POPcast: "Michael Bay is one of the producers, Kevin James is in the movie, Sigourney Weaver, and I'm just really really excited."
- As of May 19th, there have been no promos or advertising on Disney Channel or Disney XD and no other official announcements have been made on Disney Medianet.
- Bad Hair Day & Meatloaf Surprise are slated to air that night.
- The LA Times Show Tracker gives a release date of "early August" while giving out other info about Season 3's guest stars.
I currently have an email out to Swampy Marsh to see if he can confirm or deny the release date for us.
