“Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe” follows the duo — originally from the “Phineas and Ferb” TV show on Disney Channel and Disney XD from 2007-2015 — as they go on an intergalactic quest to rescue their sister Candace, who has been abducted by aliens.

“What’s nice about the new movie is that it does a very good job of looping in new viewers about the show and what they might have missed,” said DeLand native Vincent Martella, who reprises his role as Phineas Flynn in the animated film.

The show mainly focuses on the two stepbrothers as they attempt to make the most of each day of summer vacation while avoiding being busted by their older sister Candace, but the film gives Candace a chance to be the hero, Martella said.

“She is taken to another planet, where she believes she is the chosen one and the savior of this planet, but there is more to it than meets the eye, so Phineas and Ferb have to travel across the galaxy together to help her,” the 2011 DeLand High School graduate said.

During his audition for Phineas years ago, Martella was given a short breakdown of the character and his arc. Phineas was conveyed as creative, excited and energetic, which helped the 27-year-old develop the perfect voice.

“He’s never upset and always has a positive attitude, so I wanted to make a voice that instinctually made you smile when you heard it,” Martella, said of Phineas. “I try to capture that constantly when I get to play him. Recording sessions are always very high energy, moving around the mic, a full-body thing.”

Martella shot most of the first two seasons of “Phineas and Ferb” behind Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

“I would go to Disney World and record right behind Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster,” he said. “A lot of my subconscious experiences of shooting the show in Central Florida played a role.”

Martella said the family-friendly movie and show incorporate humor, plus great music and art.

“What I’ve loved about this show and the movie is that it offers a lot to a lot of different types of viewers,” he said.

In addition to the Disney Plus movie, Martella voices Robin in first interactive DC Universe film, “Batman: Death in the Family,” which debuts Oct. 13.
