Family Guy's Return Of The Jedi Parody - Details

Well, limited details, anyway. Basically, a release date, December 21. Also, a guest cast that will include Carrie Fisher, Patrick Stewart, and Michael Dorn. Finally, there's a parody of the RotJ poster with Family Guy characters. Can't really make out who Jabba is supposed to be, but it seems Tim the Bear from The Cleveland Show is an Ewok.

Jabba is blurry, but that really looks like Joe Swanson's chin to me.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

I think Jabba is Joe (neither uses legs).

Edit:you beat me to it

Joe being Jabba makes a lot more sense than Joe being Biggs or the probe droid.

Cool. I hope it's better than "Something, Something, Something, Darkside Guy" which I found disappointing.

I really enjoyed the first two, and fully expect the third to be more of the satisfying same.

I loved the first one, and enjoyed parts of the second one (even though Robot Chicken beat them to the punch on some jokes, like about Lando wearing Han's clothes at the end), but overall thought it was a little disappointing. Hopefully the third one is better.

Have they said if they'll do the prequels?

They better have a five minute long Giant Chicken fight in this one. I was sorely disappointed that the Chicken was Boba Fett in the second one but they didn't fight!!!

Actually, from the costume they have the Bear wearing - it more looks like he'll be one of the Ewoks.

Re: Family Guy's Return Of The Jedi Parody - Details

Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn in a Star Trek joke, eh? I found the TNG episode of Family Guy alright, I'll say that much.

Anyway, I wasn't a huge fan of the first two, but they had their moments, the first more then the second (they feel a lot like being made by people who have seen the original trilogy way too many times, which makes some of the parodies of the films dead on); but hey, I'll probably see this too why not.

I think they said in the SSSD commentary that they weren't interest in doing the PT. More's the pity. I love the prequels.

the truth is that Han was wearing Lando's clothes, well, clothes that Lando bought and stocked the captains quarters of the Falcon before loosing it to Han
