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.
