Phineas and Ferb Movie Premiere!
Today was Red Carpet premiere of the Phineas and Ferb movie. The “red” carpet was actually “Perry teal,” a pretty nice touch.
It was great to see the final cut of the film. Because we were in charge of crafting the story and screenplay for the game we had limited access to the movie as it was being created. The first access we had was that they locked us into a small room so we could read an early draft of the script! Luckily we were also invited to a meeting where they explained the plot of the film and showed us a tiny taste of the feel the movie would have (which, by the way, is when I looked at one of the Disney producers and said “That Goozim is a boss fight!”) Eventually we were sent a couple of different early cuts as they would get chunks of animation completed. It was a lot of fun to watch the story evolve and improve over the course of their development, and encouraged our team to do the same, and the end product is nothing short of amazing. It was a blast being a part of it all.
You can also see in that shot a large bus with eyes… that’s the “Platy-bus.” At the end of the event there were passing out bags of goodies from inside of it (which, if you are curious, came with a soundtrack, a beach towel, a box of Macaroni and Cheese… band-aids… well I guess whatever they had that had P&F’s head on it). At Comicon they had the thing open to the public and they filled it with TVs and consoles playing a demo of the game:
PS. The game is in stores today!
