Family Guy film the film

FamilyGuy-Stewie.jpgIt seems that Seth MacFarlane is serious about a Family Guy film and in fact he's so serious that he thinks they can do it within the year, despite not having the time to fit it in with the television show.

What is interesting though are his comments about why they would do a film, something I think reflects quite harshly on The Simpsons Movie (Filmstalker review).

In the interview over at TV Week through the upstanding MoviesOnline he says:

"We want to do it. And it is time. In the past six months we have seriously started talking about it. And my hope is that we will get it going within the next year. Doing the show is a seven-day a week process, so I don't know how we will squeeze in a movie. But we will figure it out. I have an idea about what it will be. It is definitely something you wouldn't be able to do on the show. That's the only reason to do a movie."

The only reason to do a film is to have an idea that won't work on the small screen, now can you really say that about the Simpson's Movie? I don't think you can. It is an elongated episode.

Family Guy certainly has much more scope that Simpson's though, after all that's still a cartoon that carries a wide audience appeal, Family Guy is really for the mature audience. Now I wonder if they will be so concerned with an R rating?



"What is interesting though are his comments about why they would do a film, something I think reflects quite harshly on The Simpsons Movie (Filmstalker review)." Uh, perhaps you're reading into this comment? It's a bit of a leap to believe that this is a "harsh dig" at The Simpsons Movie.

Woah there, I never said he had a harsh dig, I said it reflects quite harshly, that's very different.

When you look at The Simpsons it is just a long episode and has nothing really new to bring to the big screen that wouldn't have been done on the small screen.

a bit more "Bigger, Longer & Uncut" .. Sounds good to me.
