Everyone, I know what we’re gonna do today. Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe has arrived on Disney+ and it did not disappoint.
This is the second feature-length film of the classic Disney channel show Phineas and Ferb. This Disney+ original movie brings back some of the classic Phineas and Ferb antics as well as Candace’s.
Candace (Ashley Tisdale) is seen trying to “bust” her brothers and she fails yet again. After this failure she grieves about the universe being against her. While Vanessa (Olivia Olsen) tries to help her, both of them were suddenly abducted by aliens. Phineas (Vincent Martella) and Ferb (David Errigo Jr.) track down Candace and see that she is being taken to the planet “Feebla-Oot” and they travel to that planet to save her.
The first thing that was appealing about the movie was the plot. In the series, it was mainly focused on the boys building something elaborate and Candace tries to bust them. In the end, the invention goes away and Candace fails. However, Candace is the main character in the movie. This is about Candace and wondering if she was special. Her insecurities and finding her way made the movie entertaining to watch.
In addition to Candace’s story, there also the difference between Perry the Platypus (Dee Bradley Baker) and Dr. Doffenshmirtz (Dan Povenmire). Normally in the series Perry fights and thwarts Dr. D’s evil plans. Now, Perry tries to keep him and his host family safe from the dangers of their mission. I thought it was a pleasant change to the usual routine from the series.
Then, there was the humor in the movie. The series had several ways of making the audience laugh. In the film I expected those forms of comedy such as comedic timing, cutaway and spontaneous song lyrics. Those had me giggling every time.
All in all, Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe is a movie worth watching.
