A long time ago, but somehow in the future... It is a period of civil war and renegade paragraphs floating through space. There's cool space battles, and the bad guy is the good guy's dad. But you don't find that out 'til the next episode. And the hot chick is really the sister of the good guy, but they don't know it and they kiss. Which is kind of messed up. I mean, what if they had done it instead of just kissed? Angelina Jolie kissed her brother. Yeah, she did. You know it, I ...

I saw the episode, thought it was funny, and being such a fan of Family Guy, knew how much Seth McFarlane loved the Star Wars references. I knew it was only a matter of time before a full-on remake of the film was created.
Then, I saw that a full-length DVD was coming out with extended and added scenes. Yeah. You thought it was good on Cartoon Network. Nothing compares to Stewie's diaper going over to the Dark Side. There is so much more adult humor. Everything is uncensored, and uncut.
The DVD extras include excellent commentary with Seth McFarlane, David A. Goodman, and Dominic Polcino (the episode director). My suggestion is to watch it once without the commentary, and once with. There's a fantastic interview with George Lucas, and a look into how (and why) Blue Harvest was made. I had no idea just how much of the original film was actually used. Direct quotes from Star Wars, scenes taken directly from the film, even 95% of the score is the original score with short edits and the Family Guy adaptation from Walter Murphy. The detail of the animation, right down to the explosions that look like effects taken directly from Star Wars (but aren't), was all done so well. George Lucas should be proud.
Seth McFarlane and his team put a great deal of effort into making this a quality and hysterical revamp of a Lucas classic. You can't get the full experience until you see it on DVD, though. Seth, you're a freaking genius.
