Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension is a 2011 American animated action-adventure television film based on the American animated TV series Phineas and Ferb. The film premiered on August 5, 2011 in the United States. It was first announced by Jeff "Swampy" Marsh during a January 2010 interview with the Daily Telegraph. The events of the movie take place during the third season of Phineas and Ferb. It is the first feature-length film of the Phineas and Ferb series, and the third animated Disney Channel Original Movie, following Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama and The Proud Family Movie.

The film premiere averaged 7.6 million viewers, making it one of the highest-rated animated programs on cable in more than three years. It later gained over 3 million viewers to become the second most watched animated basic cable telecast ever among kids 6–11 and tweens 9–14, and cable's fifth highest viewership movie ever in total viewers.

It is the first film based on the series. A standalone sequel called Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe was released in 2020 on Disney+.


Phineas and Ferb create an enormous shuttlecock to play platypult (platypus + catapult) badminton. Perry enters his secret lair and is warned by Major Monogram that he's had some close calls with his "host family" (the Flynn-Fletchers) almost seeing him enter his lair. He then warns Perry that if his cover's blown, he'll have to be relocated to another city, with another host family and that he'll never see Phineas and Ferb again. He also reveals that Perry has an auto-scan replication device which he uses to scan and replicate all of Doofenshmirtz's "inators". Carl then shows Perry some new technology, like the Wrist Communicationizer and a new hovercraft. When Perry's hovercraft accidentally collides with their shuttlecock, the boys crash into Dr. Doofenshmirtz's lab and destroy his "Other-Dimension-inator", which was intended to create portals to parallel dimensions, however it would only work after Phineas and Ferb help him. They help Doofenshmirtz rebuild the machine, and remove the self-destruct button after convincing Doofenshmirtz he doesn't need it. Perry arrives to stop Doofenshmirtz, but not wanting to reveal his identity and put Phineas and Ferb in danger, reverts to pet mode and cannot stop them.

The group travels to an alternate dimension where an evil Doofenshmirtz rules the Tri-State Area with his army of Norm-Bots. The second Perry (known as Platyborg) was converted into an evil cyborg by Doofenshimrtz-2 and programmed to serve as his second-in-command. Doof-2 orders Platyborg to attack Perry, but it fails because Perry did not attack back. Doof-2 then orders Platyborg to harm the boys, forcing Perry to reveal his secret identity, much to the boys' shock. They escape, but Phineas is angry with Perry for his deception.

With the remote for their portal broken, the boys seek out their alternate selves. Doofenshmirtz-2 decides to use the Other-Dimension-Inator to invade the original Tri-State Area, thereby creating a virtual Six-State Area. In order to keep Perry off the track, Doof-2 announces he will spare Phineas and Ferb if Perry surrenders. Perry agrees to the deal, but before he leaves is told by an angry Phineas that he is no longer their pet. When Doofenshmirtz-2 learns that only the boys can fix the Other-Dimension-inator, he reneges on the deal.

Phineas and Ferb ask the alternate Isabella for help and find that she and alternate versions of Baljeet, Buford, and the Fireside Girls are part of the resistance movement, led by the alternate Candace. Baljeet-2 is able to open the portal to the original dimension, but upon learning about Perry's capture, Phineas and Ferb decide to rescue Perry before they can leave. In the original dimension, Candace spots the portal and jumps through, causing it to close.

The kids set off to rescue Perry, but are trapped by Doofenshmirtz-2 and his forces. They escape with Perry when he shows a holographic projection of Major Monogram in the shower, but during the chase, Platyborg disables one of the mine carts, slowing them down. Unwilling to endanger her brothers, Candance-2 abandons Phineas, Ferb, Candace-1, and Perry. The boys refuse to fix the machine, but inadvertently remind Doofenshmirtz how they fixed his machine by removing the self-destruct button. After Doofenshmirtz powers up the machine, Doofenshmirtz-2 orders Phineas, Ferb, Candace, and Perry to be fed to a monster called the Goozim; when Doofenshmirtz annoys him again, Doofenshmirtz-2 orders him to be fed as well.

Before the five can be eaten, Candace-2 rescues them and gives them the remote, allowing Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Perry, and Doofenshmirtz to travel through other dimensions until they reach their home dimension. Despite this Candace-2 is captured by the Norm Bots. Doofenshmirtz-2 arrives at their dimension and releases the Norm Bots into Danville. Perry gives Phineas and Ferb the locket off his collar, which leads them to Perry's lair. Inside, they find out that Perry auto-scanned all their previous inventions. With the help of their friends, the children of Danville, and the O.W.C.A. agents, Phineas and Ferb use the inventions to defeat the Norm Bots, while Candace-2 is freed by Phineas-2, Ferb-2, and Jeremy-2, and Perry defeats Platyborg. Before Doofenshmirtz-2 can destroy Perry, Phineas and Ferb with a large robot version of himself, Doofenshmirtz arrives and gives Doofenshmirtz-2 a toy train that he lost when he was a kid, which was the sole reason he turned evil. His tragic backstory resolved, Doofenshmirtz-2 self-destructs his Norm Bots and returns to his own dimension, only to be arrested.

Several characters from the other dimension arrive in the original dimension to thank their counterparts for saving the day. Platyborg, freed from his evil programming, reverts to his normal self, and Phineas-2 and Ferb-2 take him home. The kids are distraught to learn that Perry will be relocated since his cover is blown, but Carl remembers Doofenshmirtz has an Amnesia-inator that can erase memories. Phineas, Ferb, Candace, and their friends have their memories erased, allowing them to keep Perry. Before they forget, Phineas and Ferb say their goodbyes to Perry, and Isabella seizes the opportunity to kiss Phineas. Perry enters his lair and uploads photos from the day onto his computer, smiling happily.
