About a week or so ago I posted a teaser trailer for “Something, Something, Something, Darkside”, which is Family Guy‘s newest spoof of the Star Wars Trilogy, this time lampooning the happenings of Empire Strikes Back.
I lot of you were happy to see Family Guy doing a follow-up to their hilarious 2007 Star Wars parody, “Blue Harvest”, but thought that the teaser trailer was a bit disappointing in terms of laugh out loud moments.
Well I’m happy to report that there is now a full trailer for “Something, Something, Something Darkside”, and it really does bring the laughs.
What was missing from the teaser trailer that is included here are those sly, knowing little winks that Family Guy provides on just about any topic imaginable. Of course, there is plenty of raunchy humor as well (never fear, my low-brow friends), along with plenty of Family Guy inside jokes. My personal favorite are the great role choices, where we see many of our favorite characters from Quahog ironically cast as the Star Wars universe’s biggest icons.
Check out the trailer below (and wait to you see who is playing Boba Fett!):
Ok, after watching that a second time… It really is pretty freaking funny.
“Something, Something, Something, Darkside” will be available on DVD/Blu-ray on December 22, 2009. For those of you not interested in purchasing/renting it, the episode will air on Fox sometime in 2010. We’ll be sure to update you on when you can tune in.
You can watch regular Family Guy episodes Sundays @ 9pm on Fox.
