    LOS ANGELES, November 5 /CNW/ - A long time ago, but somehow in the
future ...Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents an outrageous look
at the Star Wars(TM) universe when Family Guy Presents: "Blue Harvest"
parodies the movie that started it all - Episode IV A New Hope - on DVD on
January 15 in North America and Canada, January 22 will kick-off international
releases. "Blue Harvest" finds Peter, Lois, Chris, Stewie, Brian and some of
Quahog's finest in the middle of George Lucas' beloved science-fiction epic.
Feel the Farce in the most irreverent and hilarious way possible, with Han
Solo (Peter) Dumpster diving for furniture, Darth Vader (Stewie) soiling his
diapers, Luke (Chris) battling against "Thai" fighters, and C-3PO (Quagmire)
flirting with a 1980s dot-matrix printer. Featuring hysterical cameos from
Rush Limbaugh, Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo and Helen Reddy, Family Guy
Presents: "Blue Harvest" is "a dead-on homage that hilariously picks apart
Star Wars, along with much of real life" (Associated Press). The DVD features
more than four minutes of never-before-seen material, an uncensored track,
animatics, commentaries, interviews with Seth MacFarlane and George Lucas, and
a first look at a now-in-production "Family Guy" Star Wars spoof (which goes
by the working title of "Something, Something, Something Dark Side"). Also
available for true "Family Guy" and "Star Wars" fans is a special edition DVD
that features collectible packaging, trading cards, an exclusive brochure, 3-D
glasses, a t-shirt and more. The Family Guy Presents: "Blue Harvest" DVD is
available for the suggested retail price of $22.98 U.S. / $25.98 Canada. The
special edition is available for a suggested retail price of $34.99 U.S. /
$46.98 Canada

    Family Guy Presents: "Blue Harvest" Synopsis

    The laughs come full Force when the Griffin clan puts a freakin' sweet
spin on the greatest sci-fi saga ever told! With Peter playing the
swashbuckling Han Solo, Lois as the sexy Princess Leia, Chris as an adolescent
Luke Skywalker, Brian as a well-spoken Chewbacca, and Stewie finally embracing
his dark side as Darth Vader, who knows what will happen. Filled with
outrageous gags, spaced out droids and more intergalactic satire than you can
shake a lightsaber at, this epic spoof is a must-own for every fan of Family
Guy! The episode title comes from the code name used when filming Star Wars:
Episode VI Return of the Jedi.
