FAMILY GUY: SOMETHING, SOMETHING, SOMETHING DARK SIDE

Twentieth Century For Fox has announced a Dec. 22 release on Blu-ray and DVD for Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Dark Side, the animated series' second spoof of the Star Wars movies.

The spoof of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back will be the second DVD premiere for Family Guy, following 2005's Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story. It is also follow-up to the 2008 spoof, Blue Harvest.

Here's how Fox describes the story:

"Luke (Chris), Leia (Lois), Han Solo (Peter) and Chewbacca (Brian) have evaded the dreaded Imperial Starfleet led by the cunning, conniving and curiously short evil lord Darth Vader (Stewie), setting up a new secret base on the remote ice world of Hoth. With the rebellion in trouble, young Skywalker must take the advice of his late, and rather lascivious, mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi (Herbert) and learn the ways of the 'farce' under Jedi Master Yoda (Carl) to save the galaxy once and for all."

The two-disc set will include deleted scenes, making-of featurettes, animatics and a pop-up video feature.

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: SEASON 2

Cartoon Network has announced a Friday, Oct. 2 launch for the second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars from Lucasfilm Animation.

The season will kick off with a one-hour episode at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

Here's how the network describes the season:

"Fierce battles, expanded storylines and ground-breaking animation raise the stakes in Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Rise of the Bounty Hunters. The lives of the Jedi become more complex as secret and forbidden relationships are revealed and a new breed of villain enters to take advantage of the wartime turmoil.

"Season 2 introduces these lawless rogues into the fray along with a host of new characters, locations and creatures. Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Star Wars universe, The Clone Wars is bigger, bolder and more intense than ever before."
