'Family Guy' movie in the pipeline

Monday December 3, 2012

Seth MacFarlane has confirmed that comedy cartoon sensation Family Guy will be made into a film. The creator and Oscar host confirmed that the animated TV series will make it to the big screen in a question and answer session at American college UCLA. When asked by a student whether a movie version was a possibility, he replied: "It's just a matter of when.

"It's hard to do that while you have the series going on at the same time; I think that's why it took The Simpsons 20 seasons to figure out how to do it."

Seth also hinted that a storyline is already in place.

"We do know what the Family Guy movie will be," he said.

"The Simpsons movie, I thought, was hilarious, but the one criticism I would have is that it's a story they probably could've done on TV. There could've been an episode that had that plotline. That's the challenge with animation. You pretty much can do any story you want, so what is the reason for the movie?"

He continued: "We finally hit on the answer to that question, and it will be something that would be impossible to do on TV."
