The Family Guy vs. Star Wars

It looks like some luck fanboys and fangurls will get a sneak preview of this episode this weekend:

‘Family Guy’ meets ‘Star Wars’
Toon kicking off season with approved spoof

“Fox’s animated hit will kick off its fifth season this September with an hourlong episode that retells the “Star Wars” saga using “Family Guy” characters. Lucasfilm has blessed the event, which will have the Griffin family acting out all the key scenes and narrative from “Star Wars: A New Hope,” the first installment of the franchise. “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane is a major “Star Wars” fan and was personally involved in getting Lucasfilm on board, an exec from 20th Century Fox TV said.

Not surprisingly, family patriarch Peter Griffin will play the role of Han Solo, while mom Lois will appear as Princess Leia. Evil baby Stewie will be Darth Vader, natch. Brian the family dog will serve as Chewbaca, while son Chris is Luke. Robots R2-D2 and C-3PO will be handled by Cleveland and Quagmire, respectively, while creepy old guy Herbert gets the Obi- Wan character.

Plot of the episode has the Griffin family stuck at home during a blackout. With no TV to entertain them, Peter decides to tell a story — leading to the “Star Wars” flashback. Planning for the seg began more than a year ago, with the “Family Guy” execs getting Lucasfilm on board. MacFarlane is set to show off footage from the episode at this weekend’s Star Wars mega-convention in Los Angeles.”
