When it was announced that Disney was moving ahead with a full length Phineas and Ferb movie to be released in theaters, the one thing that didn’t catch many reader’s attention was the fact the movie was going to be a mix between live action and animation.

According to producer Todd Lieberman were quoted as saying,“It would be like Roger Rabbit, where we’d keep those characters and put them in the real world.  But the show is truly brilliant, the humor, the irreverence, and it’s something that we’re thrilled to be a part of, seems like a great opportunity.”

Considering Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension already had the boys jumping into alternate realities, this seems like an idea that would work.  Considering many of the current batch of hybrid movies (Smurfs, Alivin and the Chimpmunks, etc) utilize 3D CGI, I’m hoping Liberman and co-producer David Hoberman keep the animation 2D.

Phineas and Ferb opens July 26, 2013.

    I’m not sure so about this, especially if the animation goes 3D.

    It could be in clay animation for all I care as long as it keeps the same feel the series has. I’m a little on the fence about mixing it with live action, but I suppose with Phineas and Ferb it could work IF done right.

    For Phineas and Ferb this is the one way to go if making af full length movie.
    This will get you ot of the “just a long regular episode” thingy. And I just can’t wait to hear who’s going to play up against the regular crew.
