With Something Something Something Dark Side right around the corner, it only seemed apt to go back and watch Blue Harvest. You might recall that a couple of years ago, Seth MacFarlane and the Family Guy crew decided to do a spoof of Star Wars. Well, it's not really a spoof.

The Force is strong with this episode of FAMILY GUY that devotes an entire hour to STAR WARS EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE. Seth McFarlane?s spoof-happy animated sitcom casts the Griffin family and other Quahog residents as characters from George Lucas?s sci-fi classic: patriarch Peter is Han Solo, wife Lois is Princess Leia, son Chris is Luke Skywalker, family dog Brian is Chewbacca, and baby Stewie continues his quest to kill Lois as the evil Darth Vader.

FAMILY GUY PRESENTS BLUE HARVEST includes four minutes of new material and interviews with MacFarlane and the Jedi Master himself, Lucas.
