Family Guy: Empire Strikes Back Parody Available Dec 22

The TV show Family Guy is doing another Star Wars parody.  This time out it’s The Empire Strikes Back that gets the Seth MacFarlane treatment.  The hour-long episode is titled, “Something, Something, Something, Dark Side” and will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 22 prior to being aired on television.   This is a follow-up to the Family Guy spoof of A New Hope entitled, “Blue Harvest”.  There are already plans for a parody of Return of the Jedi entitled, “We Have A Bad Feeling About This”.

Below you will find the hilarious trailer for “Something, Something, Something, Dark Side”.  Not only is this a spoof of The Empire Strikes Back film, it’s also a spoof of the original trailer for the film.  Watch the Family Guy trailer below, then watch the original Empire trailer (further below).  The Family Guy trailer is patterned after the Empire trailer.

Did ya notice the horrible voice-over guy in the Empire Strikes Back trailer… yeah, that’s Harrison Ford.  Don’t believe me, go back and listen again.  He might be able to make the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs, but he sure can’t do a voice-over.

My thanks to Ed from The Unique Geek for directing me to the Family Guy trailer.

    i don’t think that the FG trailer was meant to direclty spoof the original trailer. There are a few similarities but it just isn’t that close…
