Phineas and Ferb “Candace Against the Universe” Movie Review

Phineas and Ferb “Candace Against the Universe” Movie Review

Liz Wilbur, Writer


If you don’t know, Phineas and Ferb is a disney cartoon that started in 2007. The animated television series centers around two stepbrothers, Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, their sister, Candace, their pet platypus, Perry, and their adventures during summer vacation. If you haven’t watched the series, I highly suggest watching it. 

The movie “Candace Against the Universe” came as a shock to many people, especially the former fans because the series ended in 2015. I was definitely a fan of the series when it came out. It was my favorite thing to watch, and I was super sad that it ended. After the series ended there were 4 different movies that came out to keep Phineas and Ferb going. These movies are Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation, Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension, Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars. After the movie “Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension” came out in 2017. We thought it  was over. But when I heard Dan Povenmire announce on Tik Tok that they were working on “Candace against the Universe” I got super excited. And when it got released on Disney plus, I immediately made plans to watch it with my friend who is a fan too. 

As soon as we pressed play on the movie, nostalgia hit me. From all the bright colors to the same voices, and the characters, it almost brought me to tears. I don’t want to spoil too much but it lived up to the expectations set by the series. It had music and different plots but, at the same time it kept to the same plots of the series. Like, if you watched the series, Perry the Platypus still kept his identity from the children, while still fighting Dr. Doofenshmirtz.  The Movie looked at Candace rather than Phineas and Ferb. And Candace is super upset that she can’t bust her brothers. But, something happens that changes her point of view. 

In the end, she is happy living with her brothers, and her brothers have a newfound respect for their sister.  10 out 10, I highly recommend watching Candace Against the Universe.
