About PHINEAS AND FERB: STAR WARS –
A couple summers ago in a galaxy far, far away, Phineas and Ferb are happily basking in the glow of Tatooine’s twin suns – until plans for the Death Star accidentally fall into their hands, thrusting them (and Agent P) into a galactic rebellion and an epic struggle of good versus evil in Phineas And Ferb: Star Wars.
Will Phineas and Ferb be able to resist the Dark Side? Will Stormtrooper Candace finally bust a Rebel? Can Agent P stop Darthenshmirtz from using his Force-powered “Sith-Inator”?
Featuring 5 additional episodes for over 2 hours of action-packed fun, this mind-blowing, intergalactic adventure is a blast for all ages! May the Ferb be with you…always.
This epic battle to restore balance to the universe includes not only the full-length adventure, but 5 additional episodes. Plus FREE inside every DVD is a collectible Perry-In-Carbonite keychain! With all the antics of Phineas And Ferb combined with Star Wars, this is definitely a fun one–perfect for a DVD gift on it’s own or including in a Star Wars gift basket!
About STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: THE LOST MISSIONS
Set between Episodes II and III of the iconic “Star Wars” saga, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” explores the untold stories that helped shape the galaxy far, far away. The series chronicles the adventures of Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Ahsoka Tano and other “Star Wars” heroes as they struggle to maintain freedom and restore peace against the dark side of the Force. Joined by an army of clone troopers, the noble Jedi fight to protect the Republic against the Separatists and their droid army led by Count Dooku, hias assassin Asajj Ventress and the evil General Grievous. Each week, a new thrilling story is revealed, brought to the screen by supervising director Dave Filoni and executive producer George Lucas
The bonus features include a never before seen 16-Minute documentary covering all six seasons, plus four additional story reels from “The Lost Missions” Season (Blu-ray only). With over 250 minutes of run time, this one will have Star Wars fans occupied for a long time!
Obviously both/either movie would make great gifts for Star Wars fans. But, I thought it would be fun to make a little gift basket with them!
Obviously, I started with the Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Phineus and Ferb: Star Wars DVDs and then built around that. I found a cute Star Wars bath & body wash set, fun straws, and cute R2D2 & C3PO jammies that I thought would be perfect to add. Really though, you could add any Star Wars stuff that you find that you think would work. The Disney Store now carries a whole bunch of great Star Wars products! You could also include (or wrap the gift basket with) a DIY Star Wars fleece blanket!
My boys are going to be SO excited to open this gift basket for Christmas!!! No matter what items you put together though, a Star Wars gift basket featuring the latest Star Wars movies is sure to be a hit!
What new Star Wars DVD release would your kids be most excited for?
