From Ray Richmond, who is contributing to Deadline Hollywood’s TCA coverage:
Disney Channel’s Worldwide chief Gary Marsh announced Monday afternoon that Disney is in the early stages of developing a feature centered on the hit Disney Channel animated series Phineas and Ferb. The film, which is being developed by Disney head of production Sean Bailey, will be a combo of live action and animation, Marsh said. The series premiered on the channel three years ago as a 2D animated comedy and branched in December into a live action/animation talk show, Take Two with Phineas and Ferb, on which the characters interview celebs including Taylor Swift, Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris, Seth Rogan and Emma Roberts. A Phineas and Ferb full-length made-for-TV movie, Phineas and Ferb Across the 2nd Dimension, is slated to air on Disney Channel next summer.
