Entertainment Weekly has just reported that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane is currently working on an animated Family Guy movie. MacFarlane himself admitted, while being probed by an entire classroom of UCLA students in a publicity event for a contest, that it’s just a matter of time.
While Family Guy has received its fair share of criticism and comparison to The Simsons, MacFarlane shrugs it off, but he does admit that he wants to learn from The Simpsons’ mistakes when migrating to the big screen:
“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”, he said. “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.”
In order to avoid giving too much away, MacFarlane added, “I can’t tell you what that is”.
