I saw some inklings of this on Twitter earlier, but thankfully io9 has obliged us in a write-up of the Family Guy panel, where Seth McFarlane and the gang talked about their upcoming ESB parody, ‘Something Something Something Dark Side,’ and revealed the title for their Return of the Jedi spoof, ‘We Have A Bad Feeling About This.’
They hope for ‘Something Something Something Dark Side’ to air by the end of the year.
Neither Robot Chicken: Star Wars or Family Guy: Blue Harvest picked up Creative Arts Emmys yesterday, losing out to The Simpsons and South Park, respectively. And Carrie Fisher, who was up for her 30 Rock guest spot, lost out to some chick from Desperate Housewives. On the whole, it wasn’t a great night for genre, but Battlestar Galactica did pick up Special Visual Effects for a series.
Seth MacFarlane tells Sci-Fi Wire that Family Guy’sEmpire Strikes Back spoof, Something Something Something Dark Side, may be released on DVD before it airs on TV. Also, who plays Lando? Click through to find out.
It must be spoof day… Rebelscum spotted a poster for Family Guy’sEmpire Strikes Back spoof/Blue Harvest followup. Looks like a lithograph will be available at SDCC – Acme’s booth is #5429, and Seth MacFarlane will be on hand signing there Friday.

Dear media: Over the last few weeks I have seen about a million references to the Sex and the City movie as ‘Star Wars for women.’ I’ve rolled my eyes pretty much every time. Please stop, or I’ll be forced to commit further crimes of photoshoppery.
