Family Guy to spoof Jedi, it will

The spoof is strong with this one. Fox's Family Guy has already given the Giggity to Star Wars with the popular Blue Harvest episode that parodied the seminal science-fiction film, and has a take on The Empire Strikes Back in the works. Can you guess what's next?

In the best-yet-least-surprising news of the month, Family Guy will collide universes with Return of the Jedi, says The Hollywood Reporter. And it's further along than one would think. The cast of Family Guy finished a table read of the script for the third Star Wars spoof earlier this week.

Family Guy has embraced "geek culture" (popular media's term, not mine), and doesn't appear to have any intentions of stopping. Fox recently revealed that an upcoming episode of Family Guy would feature the Griffins visiting a Star Trek convention and hanging out with the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, with the original actors providing voices.

Oh boy… can't wait to see what Seth McFarlane does with Ewoks. Please make Brian hump one.

Family Guy is not funny, and I'm not some prude who hates raunchy humor, I just like funny humor. Anyone can do what they do, which is throw 500 gags into a show and use their characters to not parody but mirror pop culture. It's sooo funny because Stewie acted exactly like they do on American Idol. Bah.

My faves are Stewie and Meg. It is fun when they mock Star Wars. It is flattering actually. I love Clone Wars, will FG mock them next? lol

I didn't really care about the first one, but this one might be worth viewing.

Blue Harvest wasn't that great to me but I'll check out what they do with the other two only cause I have faith Seth can regroup and still pull it off.

According to the special features on Blue Harvest they are doing spoofs of empire and return. Is this still the case?

I hope they won't be doing the three "first" films after the three original ones. o.O Though it would be kind of funny to get a few stabs at Jar Jar Binks.

seems to me that the Family Guy people are running out of ideas! What has happened to this show of late, episodes are few and far between, and when they come, they are disappointing. So what is the answer to the lack of "funny factor" of late in the show? To do something that they have done already? Come on, I expected more for them, lets just hope that I am proved wrong and the parody is hilarious!

I can definitely see a parallel between the Emperor's character and the infamous "Death" character that they had...I'd love to see what they come up with. I just love Family Guy to death, I'm sure anything they put on screen will be funny.

Blue Harvest was excellent and I have a feeling Something Darkside will be as well. I wonder what funny name will be given to the third?

I liked the spoof of ANH so that is good they are doing the other two.

Well if you start with Blue Harvest then do Empire, it would seem only right to finish it off with Jedi. Ewoks have so much potential to be a riot as does the emperor.

I'd love to see them do the prequel trilogy after this. My mind boggles with the number of jokes to be told in that one!
