Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Phineas And Ferb co-creator Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh revealed a little about the plot of their eagerly anticipated Star Wars crossover episode, coming hot on the heels of Phineas And Ferb: Mission Marvel.

“All of [the plot of A New Hope] happens exactly the way it did,” said Swampy, “but we find out that Phineas and Ferb are Luke’s neighbors on Tatooine and become embroiled in the adventure.

“Our story all takes place as if you had a slightly wider shot, you could see our characters. Or if you just waited around five minutes after this [Star Wars] storyline, our characters would pass through, which was really really fun to do.”

Going on to talk about the voice actors, Swampy added, “The Star Wars actors are now all 40 years older, so they don’t sound quite the same, so we’re trying to find people who sound like they did when they were young. The guy we had come in to do Harrison Ford sounded so much like young Harrison Ford. It was like, if you didn’t look up you thought, ‘We have Harrison Ford in the booth!'”

Phineas And Ferb: Mission Marvel will air 25 August 2013 on Disney XD, while the Star Wars episode is due 2014.
