Family Guy is a popular animated sitcom that has been on the air since 1999. The show is known for its irreverent humor, pop culture references, and satirical take on American life. One of the most popular and memorable episodes of Family Guy was its parody of Star Wars, which spanned three episodes and covered the original trilogy.
The Family Guy Star Wars parody began with “Blue Harvest,” which aired in 2007. The episode was named after the working title for Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi when it was in production. In “Blue Harvest,” the Griffin family takes on the roles of Star Wars characters, with Peter as Han Solo, Lois as Princess Leia, Chris as Luke Skywalker, Stewie as Darth Vader, Brian as Chewbacca, and Quagmire as C-3PO.
The episode follows the plot of A New Hope closely but with Family Guy’s unique spin. For example, when Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Herbert) tells Luke Skywalker (played by Chris) about the Force, he also mentions that it can be used to open jars or fix a running toilet. The episode also includes several cutaway gags and pop culture references unrelated to Star Wars.
The second episode in Family Guy’s Star Wars parody is “Something Something Something Dark Side,” which aired in 2009. This episode parodies The Empire Strikes Back and features many of the same jokes and gags as “Blue Harvest.” However, this time around there are also some new characters introduced such as Mort Goldman playing Lando Calrissian.
The third and final installment in Family Guy’s Star Wars parody is “It’s A Trap!,” which aired in 2011. This episode parodies Return of the Jedi and features many of the same gags from previous episodes.
Overall, Family Guy’s Star Wars parody was well-received by fans for its humor and attention to detail. The episodes were also notable for featuring several Star Wars actors and creators, including Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and George Lucas.
In conclusion, Family Guy does indeed have a Star Wars movie in the form of its three-part parody of the original trilogy. “Blue Harvest,” “Something Something Something Dark Side,” and “It’s A Trap!” are all available on DVD and streaming platforms for fans who want to relive the irreverent humor of Family Guy’s take on a galaxy far, far away.
