Monday Morning Movie Mews (sorry, the should be "news)

The big news was the big announcement of the season premiere of Family Guy that'll be on this fall.

The season premiere will be a 1-hour special in which the Griffin family re-creates...Star Wars. Episode IV: A New Hope to be specific.

Character breakdown goes like this:

- Peter Griffin will be Han Solo
- Lois Griffin will be Princess Leia
- Stewie will be Darth Vader
- Brain will be Chewbacca
- Cleavland and Quagmire will be C-3P0 and R2-D2
- Chris Griffin will be Luke Skywalker
- and that creepy old pedophile who keeps hitting on Chris will be Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Just like the forthcoming Robot Chicken Star Wars special, this is being done in complete co-operation with Lucasfilm. Apparently, Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane personally led the year-long negotiaitons with Lucasfilm.

That'll be on this September

And the big movie rumour this weekend...apparently, the entire creative team behind the Pirates of the Carribean trilogy are going to be re-teaming to brng us a new movie version of....

The Lone Ranger.

I'd pay my $10 to see that.
