Comic-Con: Disney XD Sets 'Milo Murphy's Law' and 'Phineas and Ferb' Crossover (Exclusive)
Milo Murphy, here come Phineas and Ferb.
Disney XD is set to announce Friday at San Diego Comic-Con that Milo Murphy's Law will get a crossover episode with Phineas and Ferb that's scheduled to premiere in 2018.
Both shows hail from Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, who have planned on doing the crossover since the beginning of Milo Murphy's Law. Eagle-eyed fans have noticed several Easter eggs planted throughout the first season that hinted at the fact that Milo and his friends live in Danville, also home to Phineas and Ferb.
In addition to Phineas and Ferb, the crossover also will feature characters including Perry the Platypus, Doofenshmirtz, Candace, Isabella, Baljeet and Buford.
"We've always known that Milo lived just a couple neighborhoods away from Phineas and Ferb," Povenmire and Marsh said in a joint statement. "We've planted lots of clues and Easter eggs in this first season, so a lot of fans have figured it out. But what they don't know is that the story arc of Milo Murphy's Law has been designed from the very beginning to lead us to a big crossover with all the Phineas and Ferb characters. It's planned for early in the second season and we can't wait for the fans to see these two worlds collide."
Milo Murphy's Law follows 13-year-old Milo Murphy (voiced by Al Yankovic, aka "Weird Al"), the fictional great-great-great-great-grandson of the Murphy's law namesake. Milo is the personification of Murphy's law, in which anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. The series was recently renewed for a second season.
Phineas and Ferb wrapped production two years ago after 222 episodes, five one-hour specials and an original movie, but the series continues to air on Disney XD.
Povenmire and Marsh are set to announce the crossover at the Comic-Con panel for Milo Murphy's Law that also will feature Daron Nefcy, creator and executive producer of Star vs. the Forces of Evil, as they discuss the process of making the shows.
Check out a preview of the upcoming one-hour Milo Murphy's Law special, Missing Milo, which airs at 7 a.m. ET on Saturday, below.
