Seth MacFarlane recently spoke about plans for a Family Guy movie at a special event to celebrate the 100th episode of American Dad. He said that they are in the early stages of development, but the main problem is finding time to fit it in.
“We want to do it,” MacFarlane told Wired.com. It wasn’t a grand, official announcement, but it was clear it’s more than a passing whim.
“Fox wants it. We know what we want to do with it. It’s just a question of finding the time,” he said. “That’s why The Simpsons took so many years to do theirs. It wasn’t because they didn’t know what they wanted to do with it. They just couldn’t fit it into the schedule.
“There’s so much to do for a weekly animated series — twice as much as you have to do for a live-action show. So, we’re finding time where we can. We’re in the early stages right now.”
I can’t get enough of Family Guy so i’m all for a movie. The Simpsons Movie just seemed like an extra long episode, so hopefully Family Guy won’t fall into a similar trap.
