And speaking of Family Guy…
In a recent interview with Crave Online, when asked about the upcoming Family Guy follow-up to their previous Star Wars spoof, Blue Harvest, MacFarlane says, “It’s coming. It will air either in the spring or the early, early fall.” A third Star Wars parody is planned as well, with the current working title of “Episode VI: The Great Muppet Caper.”
