Move over Austin & Ally and Kim & Jack, our favorite favorite favorite couple of Disney — Phineas & Isabella — are all grown up!
In an extra special episode of Phineas and Ferb set ten years in the future, “Act Your Age” finds a teenaged Phineas (Vincent Martella) deciding between two colleges while grappling with the discovery that Isabella (Alyson Stoner) has had a crush on him since they were kids.
Ferb (Thomas Brodie Sangster) and the gang try to bring the two together so they can admit their true feelings for each other before Isabella leaves for school.
JJJ caught up with Vincent and Alyson about the episode, too.
“My favorite part of the episode is the song between Phineas and Isabella because it represents over a decade of feelings finally being shared,” Alyson shared with us.
Vincent added, “I loved that this episode gave us a look into the lives of these characters everyone has come to know and love many years down the road. I think it was a really cool direction to take the series and I know that fans will love it as much as I did.”
JJJ Fun Fact: The character designs for the teenaged Phineas and Ferb were inspired by artwork that a 25-year-old Canadian superfan and aspiring artist named Ashley Simpsonpresented to creators Dan and Swampy at Comic-Con two years ago. After coming up with a storyline that would place Phineas and Ferb in the future, Dan and Swampy remembered the drawing and reached out to Ashley via social media and hired her to work with them on the episode.
“Act Your Age” premieres Monday, February 9th @ 8:30PM ET/PT on Disney XD.
