It was AWESOME. Oh man, there's so much to like here. Not only was there some great humour, but the characters were good too. So... awesome opening with Perry the Rebelpus, with the whole Imperial office situation being really funny (especially that whole thing with the guy looking up Twilek models). There were lots of other funny moments too, many of which actually connected with Star Wars - the way the characters interacted with each scene was pretty funny, like when Darthenshmirtz went up to the garbage monster and lines like "you're in my shot". There was also the whole thing with the Death Star's exhaust port being like one of Darthenshmirtz's self destruct buttons (and apparently Doof designed the Death Star - must he be buddies with Geonosians?), "kiss my bantha" (along with the part where he says "bantha droppings" or something, RADAR ALERT), the idea to blame the loss of the Death Star plans on Jar Jar, Isabella shooting Vanessa's instrument after hearing Vanessa sing about Solo so much after she said how much she hated him, various references here and there (blue ice cream! Kessel Run with Isabella who even grumpily mentions Solo's popularity! shares on Alderaan going to 0 because of the planet blowing up...?) and also the whole thing with Phineas beginning to talk about what happened to his father, only to be cut off by the Death Star blowing up. Oh, and there was also the intro with Dan and Swampy. XD
If there were any problems, I would say that there wasn't any reason Phineas couldn't have given the plans to Perry when he met him, though I guess he wasn't sure if he could do it if he was on a mission himself (also, lol at the reference to AT2D). And yeah... that's really all that I'm gonna question (I'm not going to go into nitpicky things like "why doesn't Darthenshmirtz or Ferb know about the Rule of Two?!?!?!?!", because I don't expect the writers to know EVERYTHING about Star Wars).
As I said, the thing I also really liked was how they handled the characters in this. It was nice seeing Phineas and Ferb broaden their horizons and go and save the galaxy, and the scene where the brothers fight was actually kind of intense (a. once you get past the most ridiculous lightsabre duel ever, and b. someone should really redo that scene with Battle of the Heroes on YouTube XD), even when Phineas thought Ferb was just joking with him. Candace beginning to question her imperial conditioning was nice to see, especially when she went to go and save Phineas after he saved her (also, d'aww at the scene where they realise they're siblings after being separated for so long). The character that really stood out to me though was Isabella - her arc is similar to Solo, in that at first she's just in it for herself, but then she decides to do the right thing and save who she helped. It was actually funny seeing Phineas say to Ferb that he actually fancied her when they were on the Sentinel Chihuahua, but then we also got to see that Phineas actually trusted her to do the right thing, and she did go through with sending back the Death Star plans to the rebels. The scene with her and Solo actually had me quite invested, as not only did we actually get to see Han Solo make the decision to go and help Luke, but the scene actually implied that Isabella was feeling lonely, which explains why she actually went through with doing what she did (also, I like the part when she says that she wonders if Phineas is brave or stupid, and later she says she knows which one it is). She even rejected the Firestar Girls' invitation to the Rebellion (that reminds me, Gretchen actually mentioned that they were kids - yeah, kind of makes it a bit more disturbing now if you compare it to child labour XD)! Phineas and Ferb were the first people that actually were nice to her (especially Phineas - not only did he actually try to help her out, but as I said, he actually believed in her). Also, that was a pretty funny kiss at the end there between the two (especially since we had Isabella wondering if they were related as a reference to Luke and Leia XD). Also, the part where Phineas says he likes the idea of him and Isabella together was funny, and Lawrence said that they should wait until Phineas and Ferb discover there aren't any girls on Tatooine. Well... looks like Phineas might have something to say to him, then! Oh, and did I mention that Isabella in this episode is completely and utterly AWESOME?
So yeah, awesome special with lots of funny moments, good songs (didn't mention them, but I enjoyed them a lot), nice character arcs and it was respectful of the source material. Also, STORYBOARDER EDDIE PITTMAN WAS DARTH VADER?! WTF?!?! I did consider one disturbing thing though - what if Grand Moff Tarkin actually survived and got on the Firestar Girls ship? What if the guy that ordered the destruction of Alderaan actually lived? Well... I guess there's sequel potential then. :V
The "Tyrannotitan rewatches and/or thinks some more and realises it's even more awesome" EDIT: Rewatched In the Empire... and one of the exotic worlds is Burbank. Yeah. Also, I just realised the "everybody loves Solo" line actually kind of ties into Isabella arc in a way as well. Wait... if Solo has been a thorn in Isabella's side for years, could that mean she's hated him since she was tiny? XD Just also realised that Perry was doing Open Quantum Style in the credits, and that Luke and Han were looking at him dancing with Leia out of jealousy. XD
