“You can expect very, very high stakes and high octane action that brings the three girls’ characters to some sort of culmination… That’s my broad tone for [the episode] which has all this bombastic action, giant anime robots, and Itano Circuslevel stuff, but I think it’s really important not to forget the story of the characters there. – Matt Braly, via The Gamer.
Episode 18 will be 29 minutes long and is the second Amphibia episode to premiere in the evening instead of on its traditional morning programming block, following last weekend’s “All In.”
Speaking to Screen Rant, Braly said that “All In” is about 48 minutes long, so even longer than a 44 minute episode. And “The Hardest Thing” is about 29 minutes long, which makes it a lot longer than a 22 minute episode. You combine the two, and you’ll get the final series there. ”
“And when it comes to those two episodes, the team has put so much love, care and effort into these stories and their execution. I’m still working on it now, and I’m blown away by the level of animation and performance of the voice actors. They are truly something special, and I am very proud of them. I really can’t wait to see the escalation and end of these three seasons.” – Matt Braly, via Screen Rant.

Creators talk about what will happen next after Amphibia season 3
Unfortunately, season 3 of Amphibia will be the final installment of the hit series, but there’s a slim chance that the show’s characters may return in some kind of spin-off title. Speaking to The Wrap, Braly said that he would be “more than happy to revisit if it makes sense where we left the character at the end of season 3.
“I obviously can’t go into detail about those things, but as long as it keeps the spirit of those things intact I have no problem. If Disney wants to make a short film or a small spin-off, I’m really into that. I love comic books, I love books. I’d love to do book art, that’s my next tune I’ll try to do.” – Matt Braly, via The Wrap.
However, Braly has his sights set on his next project as well, which he claims Screen Rant could be a limited series or even a theatrical film as “Like any creative, I have a million ideas, and I search within myself for what one of them calls me.” loudest.”
“This is a very exciting time for animation. I think a lot of people push the media in a very interesting way. Without going into specifics, I’d really like to try a limited series or film; something more epic and grander in scale, because I really enjoy doing big and dramatic episodes of Amphibia. Whether it’s “True Colors”, or our season 3 finale pair, “All In” and “The Hardest Thing”, it’s a lot of fun to work with. I think I found that I really liked the space.” – Matt Braly, via Screen Rant.
