Disney Channel's 'Amphibia' To Pay Homage To 'Gravity Falls' In Upcoming Episode

Gravity Falls fans will be super excited about this!!

Disney Channel’s animated series Amphibia will be paying a bit of a tribute to the former, fan favorite Disney XD series, Variety reveals.

In an upcoming episode, “Wax Museum”, Sprig, Anne and their family will travel to a mysterious roadside oddities museum that looks and feels quite a bit like the Mystery Shack on Gravity Falls, and GF creator Alex Hirsch will voice the character, The Curator, a Grunkle Stan-like character who owns the “Curiosity Hut” and features a frog custodian named “Frog Soos.”

“I have always wanted to create a Gravity Falls tribute in Amphibia,” Amphibia creator Matt Braly, who also worked on Gravity Falls, said. “I just didn’t know when or how. The two shows share so much DNA that it seemed like a missed opportunity not to have the worlds interact in some fashion. So when Amphibia writer Jenava Hudek pitched an episode where the Plantars would stop at a creepy wax museum during their roadtrip, I knew this was our golden opportunity. Jenava herself was a huge Gravity Falls fan and leapt at the chance to work with its iconic characters. The decision was made early to feature alternative universe versions of Grunkle Stan and Soos as frogs. This would be the easiest way to pay homage without stepping on anyone’s toes continuity wise.”

“Not only did he end up voicing the characters but he even improvised a number of his lines in the booth, giving the characters that classic Gravity Falls off the cuff flair,” Matt added. “It’s no surprise that the Amphibia episode ‘Wax Museum’ is one of my favorite episodes of the season and that the Curator and Frog Soos are stand out characters. Working on this episode felt like coming home in a lot of ways.”

Season two of Amphibia, which stars Brenda Song as the voice of Anne, will premiere THIS Saturday (July 11), and the episode “Wax Museum” will air on August 8th.

To add on to the exciting news, it was recently announced that Amphibia has already been picked up for a season three!!!
