New summer episodes include guest stars Jon Stewart, Elizabeth Banks and Simon Pegg

By MSN TV Partner May 16, 2014 10:31AM
Disney XD's hit series "Phineas and Ferb" has an exciting line-up of guest stars and specials this summer, starting with a one-hour special featuring Jay Leno.

Jon Stewart, Elizabeth Banks and Simon Pegg also lend their voices to upcoming episodes.

MSN TV's first-look photo from the June 9 special features friends Buford, Isabella, Phineas, Baljeet and Ferb:


In "Phineas and Ferb Save Summer," Leno plays the voice of Major Monogram's boss, Colonel Contraction of the O.W.C.A. (Organization Without a Cool Acronym). Phineas, Ferb and the gang host a global summer concert -- just as Doofenshmirtz's latest "-inator" invention moves the Earth, putting summer itself in jeopardy.


Banks and Pegg will show up in the June 11 episode, "Imperfect Storm", and Stewart is in the July 7 episode, "Klimpaloon Ultimatum".

All of this is leading up to the highly anticipated "Star Wars"-themed special. Premiering in July on Disney Channel, "Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars" finds the show characters in the world of Star Wars, where Phineas and Ferb are Luke Skywalker's neighbors, Doof meets Darth and Ferb becomes an evil Sith.

"Phineas and Ferb Save Summer" airs Monday June 9 at 10AM ET/PT on Disney XD
