Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane has been talking about the possibility of their being a Family Guy movie, claiming that there are a lot of hurdles to get over. Seth admitted that he, and the rest of the Family Guy team, already know what the movie will be about.
While he was talking to EW, MacFarlane explained, “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.”
He added, “We do know what the Family Guy movie will be. 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.
Seth continued, “That’s the challenge with animation. You pretty much can do any story you want, so what is the reason for the movie? We finally hit on the answer to that question, and it will be something that would be impossible to do on TV.”
It will be interesting to see how extreme Seth MacFarlane goes with the Family Guy movie and what rating the film will end up receiving.
