    "It's A Trap" is indeed the name, as you may have seen in my news post about no prequel Family Guys - I got the body of the article working right this morning, but the initial confirmation I had posted less than 5 minutes after MacFarlane said the words. Anyway, "It's A Trap" is certainly the final name of the episode, since it will be coming out in December they have to author the menus and print the packaging and marketing materials pretty much now.

    MINOR SPOILERS AHOY...


    They showed 9 minutes of the footage from the ep at Comic-Con, and I felt the material they showed was better than the ESB episode. Meg is indeed the Sarlacc and yes, I think this is her grossest moment yet. Joe as Jabba didn't make all that much sense to me, but he plays it well. Tim the Bear is indeed one of the Ewoks, who are all bears like him, and it gets pretty gruesome when they kill Imperials. Carter Pewterschmidt is the Emperor, and he does lightning hands. The "let me look on you with my own eyes" bit goes awry in quite an unusual manner. Klaus from American Dad plays Ackbar, and it's brilliant, a goldfish bowl for a head and Klaus swimming around. Roger from AD plays Jerjerrod. Peter as Han's defrosting joke is pretty much as expected based on the ending of SSSDS. Instead of speeder bikes, they're riding 10-speeds around the moon of Endor. And there's a lot of nodding, which requires a break-in from the late Ted Knight in Caddyshack. There were a few other gags which I didn't mention that I think folks will enjoy.

    [FONT=Courier New]Sounds hilarious. SSSDS was somewhat of a letdown, but that may have been because Blue Harvest, at least when I first saw it, was a surprise and was fresh and original.[/FONT]

    Characters from The Cleveland Show is bad enough, but American Dad too?
    Ah crap.


    At least The Cleveland Show is a direct spin-off.

    The problem is they used up way too many FG characters in the first one, so they had to go to the other parts of the MacFarlane franchise.

    I really don't see what the big problem is with the American Dad and Cleveland Show characters. I mean, they do Futurama/Simpsons cross-over comics which sounds incredibly worse than (spoiler!) Claus as Admiral Ackbar.

    What problem?
    They reused Meg (Dianoga/Space Slug), Mort (Jawa/Lando), Bruce (Greedo/Imperial Officer), Joe (Biggs/Probot), Carter (Owen/Emperor) and more in the first two.

    I'll let you know what I think of that Futurama/Simpsons cross-over comic, I bought the hardback at Comic-Con, $5 off the cover price AND signed with a drawing by each of the authors.

    They felt they overdid it though and it wasn't going to play well since they had even more characters to fill for ROTJ.

    I'll agree with that. Family Guy's cast of main characters (while somewhat large for a TV show) is still relatively too small to handle all the various characters in the original Star Wars Trilogy without stretching them thin by rehashing them for multiple parts. Realistically, the only show that I can think of that could possibly pull off the original Star Wars Trilogy on its own (in terms of sheer amount of characters) would be The Simpsons. And even if they could, they'd still probably take the liberty of dipping into the Futurama cast anyway, if for no other reason than The Simpsons lacks any real wide range of exotic looking alien or robot characters.

    Did they get Barrymore to play Jillian as Oola? I'm betting the Carrie Fisher cameo is as Peters' Boss as Mothma.
    Nowhere in your incoherent ramblings did you come anywhere close to the answer. Thanks to you, everyone in this room is now stupider having heard you. I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul. -Billy Madison-

    They didn't show Oola at all, so I dunno.

    You are right on the money about Carrie's cameo though. That got a big applause from the room, which I'm happy to say I started.


    Oh, I forgot to mention, the eye stalk robot thing in Jabba's door... Consuela.
