Family Guy: Blue Harvest On DVD

Posted By Mike on December 12, 2007

TVShowsOnDVD.com is reporting that the DVD for Family Guy: Blue Harvest will be released on January 15, 2008. Nothing official has been announced so we have to consider this a rumor until we hear otherwise. The report also suggests that the DVD will include and interview with George Lucas, audio commentary from Seth MacFarlane, behind the scenes featurettes, animatics and possibly a trailer for "Family Guy Presents The Empire Strikes Back."

Click here for all the info.


Thanks, as always, to Ryan P. for the heads up.


UPDATE: It's official! Looks like the above report was pretty accurate. See below for the press release from businesswire.com:

The Griffin Clan Spoofs the First Star Wars Movie – Family Guy Presents: “Blue Harvest”

DVD Debuts January from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Featuring Never-Before-Seen Footage, Commentaries, Interview With George Lucas and Others, and a First Look at the Next Hilarious Intergalactic Adventure

Special Edition Also Available, Featuring Collectible Packaging, T-Shirt, Trading Cards, 3-D Glasses and More



LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A long time ago, but somehow in the future …Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents an outrageous look at the Star Wars™ 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.
