“Family Guy” Spoofs Empire

StarWars.com Team | September 11, 2008

Fans of the “Family Guy: Blue Harvest” special are in for a treat with the next Star Wars inspired “Family Guy” as the show spoofs Empire Strikes Back next!

Sci-Fi Wire interviewed “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane about the next installment, due to air sometime in the next season on FOX.

“It will be called Something Something Something Dark Side,” MacFarlane teased.

“Lando is played by Mort Goldman, who is the Jewish guy who lives up the street,” Seth MacFarlane said in an interview at Fox’s fall-season premiere party in Beverly Hills, Calif., this week. “We figured, black guy, Jewish guy, why not?”

In the sequel, “Boba Fett is played by the giant chicken,” Peter’s nemesis, MacFarlane said.

As in “Blue Harvest,” Stewie plays Darth Vader, and Chris plays Luke–leading to the awkward moment when Stewie tells Chris that he is his father. “Yeah, basically,” MacFarlane said. “He will have to tell Chris that he’s his father.”

“Family Guy” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, with new episodes beginning Sept. 28.
