Trivia

At the end after the story, Peter says "We got time for another story, it's called Without a Paddle (2004)" and Chris says "F**k you, dad!". This is because Seth Green (the man who does the voice for Chris) was in Without a Paddle (2004). See more »

What you may not know is that 20th Century Fox had so little faith in the "Star Wars" franchise that George Lucas kept all the merchandising rights. Are you listening stockholders?

Alternate Versions

When this aired as two-part episode on Fox a line was changed to eliminate a masturbation joke.

I am not a fan of the Family Guy series, actually I have never even sat through a whole episode. Just watched fragments of it while zapping around on the TV. However, this movie was such a treat.

Being a huge "Star Wars" fan, I decided to watch it, based on the cover alone. It is always fun to watch a spoof of something. And this movie delivered. I was laughing a lot throughout the length of the movie.

Now, without having seen the series, it is impossible for me to say whether or not this movie lives up to the comedy standards of the series. But without having seen them, I can honestly say that this movie is great. Loads of laughs here.

Remember this is a spoof, do not watch this if you get offended or angry by something making fun of the "Star Wars" franchise.

I had a blast watching this, and I think it definitely have enough punch in it for a second watching later on. It is just that unique and funny. This animation picks up the "Star Wars" story and beats it with a funny stick.
