the history of cinema but can 'Family Guy' be at one with the Force?
it was announced that 'Family Guy' would be producing their own version
of the 'Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope' fans of the series were salivating
at the prospect of their heroes going to that galaxy far, far away but they
could never have expected a homage that would be as good as this.

the movie but lovingly recreated most of the key sequences of first movie
in the beloved 'Original Trilogy'. With shot for shot recreations of all
of the key locations and visual effects, this is much more than your usual

'Family Guy' humour.

the exception of Meg who is reduced to an hilarious cameo, Peter, Lois,
Stewie, Brian, Chris, Cleveland, Joe, Quagmire, Mayor Adam West and even
Herbert. Each one have a pivotal role from the Star Wars universe and you
will laugh hysterically when they are revealed.
With the promise of more homage's to the rest of the 'Original Trilogy',

of everything 'Star Wars'. Brilliantly funny but with great respect to the
source material, this is how a 'Star Wars' homage should be done and the
Force is very much with it.
