Haddish, whose name is catching many Disney+ viewers by surprise when they see it in the closing credits, lends her voice to the movie’s exploding aliens — emphasis on the “exploding” part. As explained by the aliens’ leader, “Candace!” is the sound they make when they suddenly explode from the waist up.
“I wanted to be a part of [the movie] because I love the show,” Haddish reveals in TVLine’s exclusive behind-the-scenes video. “I love Phineas and Ferb. I love how creative they are. I love that the platypus is doing all this crazy stuff, and nobody has any clue that he’s actually an agent for the government.”
As series creator/executive producer Dan Povenmire explains, Haddish’s contribution is “more of a cameo” than a full-on character, “but it’s a really wonderful cameo.”
Haddish, whose exact character name is “The Sound Someone Makes When They Explode From The Waist Up,” says she was born to play a sound effect because she’s “good at making sounds and being effective.”
