Apparently, there was some meat-and-potatoes content at Family Guy's Comic-Con panel, courtesy of show creator Seth MacFarlane. MacFarlane, who voices Peter, Brian, Stewie, Quagmire, and others on the show, has become famous due to his show's off-kilter humor and occasional foray into taboo subject matter. MacFarlane even recently had a stint (as a human) in the ABC series FlashForward, and even appeared in a commercial for Hulu. But MacFarlane was all about Family Guy at the panel, and addressed one thing pretty quickly: despite the massive successes of Star Wars parodies Blue Harvest and Something, Something, Something, Dark Side, his series of parodies will end with this December's It's a Trap!, a parody of Return of the Jedi. MacFarlane confirmed that the prequel trilogy of Star Wars, which lasted from 1999 Ã¢â¬â 2005, will not be parodied by the Griffins. "I don't think we'll be going that route," he said. "They're just too expensive. LucasFilm has been really great to us [this far]." To Read More Click Here .
You know the best way to get Family Guy to bring back a guest character? Protest vociferously in the media - it helps if youâre a publicity-magnet ex-VP candidate - so as to create a rather grand controversy. Remember that girl Chris went on a date with during a February episode, the one who has Down syndrome and whose mom is the former governor of Alaska? And remember how Sarah Palin, in real life the mother of an infant boy with Down syndrome, fought back with a Facebook post and media appearances, calling the episode a âkick in the gutâ? And how her daughter, Bristol, called the Family Guy writers âheartless jerksâ? To Read More Click Here .

The trilogy is now complete. Family Guy's popular series of Star Wars parodies - the Empire Strikes Back installment was the No. 3 best-selling Blu-ray release of 2009 - goes for the intergalactic trifecta with a spoof of Return of The Jedi. As you can tell by TV Guide Magazine's exclusive first look at the poster art, the still untitled project retains its faithful tone, but you can of course count on a merciless fanboy skewing of the Ewok-centered film. Seth MacFarlane and company are back along with several guest voices including semi-regulars Adam West and Carrie Fisher; Rush Limbaugh (as the Sarlaac pit monster); and Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn in a Star Trek: The Next Generation riff. The movie goes on sale December 21 on DVD and Blu-ray. Fans will get a 10-minute taste of the Jedi parody on July 24 at a sure-to-be well attended panel at Comic-Con in San Diego. MacFarlane, Alex Borstein and Seth Green will be on hand that day for wisecracks as well. Source Here
