Maybe being a superhero isn't about the ability to fly or to shoot lightning bolts out of your ears. Maybe it's about finding the inner strength to look for a job for the 100th time, taking on two or three underpaid jobs while trying to raise children or working into your old age because you can't afford to retire. That's heroic.
Jobless crusader UNEMPLOYED MAN and his sidekick PLAN B embark on a heroic search for work—and quickly find themselves waging an epic battle against The Just Us League, a dastardly group of supervillains including THE HUMAN RESOURCE, COBRA, NICKEL & DIME, TOXIC DEBT BLOB, SILVER LINING, THE INVISIBLE HAND, and many more...
Family Guy fans who were wondering how long it would be before Seth MacFarlane and company got around to skewering Return of the Jedi, you'll only have to wait until this December. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has announced that Family Guy: It's a Trap! will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD December 21st, just in time for Christmas shopping.
Fans at Comic Con got an early look at 10 minutes of footage from the spoof this past weekend, but the rest of us will have to wait for the holidays to get our peepers on it. If you've seen the previous two outings -- Family Guy: Blue Harvest and Family Guy: Something Something Something Dark Side -- you've probably got a pretty good idea of what to expect. Fan service, wry observations, and likely a musical number or two. According to the press release, we can also look forward to voice cameos from Adam West and Carrie Fisher alongside Patrick Stewart and Michael Dorn, reprising their roles from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Oh, and Rush Limbaugh is doing the voice of the Rancor. Sounds about right.
No word yet on special features, but the last two had plenty to offer so I doubt this one will break with tradition. The press release also notes that you'll be able to pick up a triple-pack of all three Family Guy/Star Wars spoofs if you want the whole trilogy in one fell swoop. Also, SSSDS eventually aired as this past season's Family Guy finale, so there's probably a good chance It's a Trap! will follow suit if you can wait that long.
