Family Guy Movie to go to dvd!

I just found this story on Cinescape and thought all the fans of the show would be interested:

The FAMILY GUY's family finds solace in front of the TV
Exclusive!
EXCLUSIVE: FAMILY GUY - The Movie!
Creator Seth McFarlane has good news for his fans!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dateline: Friday, September 5, 2003

In an exclusive interview with Coming Attractions at Cinescape, FAMILY GUY creator Seth McFarlane told us that the rumor about the possible return of his TV show is about to become a reality. A deal is imminent for McFarlane to continue creating new animated adventures of Quahog's nuttiest, funniest dysfunctional family, the Griffins.

"It's all come down to the budget right now. We're hashing it out," McFarlane tells CA. "It would be a direct-to-DVD project."


While the feature length FAMILY GUY will be developed at Fox, it will be at a different division and not through the company's television arm. And as for when we might be able to see new FAMILY GUY goodness:


"Timeframe, you're probably looking at a year, a year-and-a-half down the line. It will take a while to make. If we could do it within a year it would be very exciting."


With tremendous sales of the first DVD volume of FAMILY GUY (the second set goes on sale starting next week) and ratings on Cartoon Network climbing high, McFarlane's now-cancelled series is proving to be more popular in its afterlife than it was when it was in active production on Fox. Expect all the TV series cast members to reprise their roles for the movie.


Look for my exclusive 10 questions interview with Seth McFarlane next week here on Cinescape. Find out more about the origins of the show, the developing FAMILY GUY movie and what storyline McFarlane has got in mind for it!

I agree with all of you--Family Guy is one of my favorite animated shows, second only to The Simpsons. I'm glad this show is finally getting the recognition it deserves after Fox badly mistreated it.

Alright! Now all those people clamoring for a Simpsons movie can rejoice, since they're almost the same series.

If the season set was so popular, don't you think Fox would reconsider bringing the series back? I just don't understand those guys. And yes, I loved the show.

(The Tick was great too)

Just the other day, I was saying, "we need more Adam West," so lo and behold, Quahog's mayor shall return.

I love the show with all my heart and watch it every weeknight on Cartoon Network, but am I the only one who thinks the movie is a bad idea? I mean, the show is never funny because of the plot, but because of the funny stuff that happens during the plot. In the movie I'm sure we will be looking at a WHOLE LOT of plot.

P.S. Sorry in advance if that doesn't make sense, it's hard to put my genius thoughts into words
