The story of The Empire Strikes Back is retold. Darth Vader (Stewie) is hunting the rebel Luke Skywalker (Chris) and his troops relentlessly across the galaxy. On the ice planet Hoth, Luke has a vision of his late mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi (Herbert), telling him to go to the Dagobah system to learn the ways of the Force under Jedi Master Yoda (Carl). Meanwhile Princess Leia (Lois) finds herself taking a shine to the scruffy pilot Han Solo (Peter) and, against all odds, the two soon fall in love. But an encounter with Han's old friend Lando Calrissian (Mort) lands them in the clutches of the Empire. Envisioning this, Luke chooses to forgo his Jedi training to save his friends. It all comes to a head in a climactic confrontation with Darth Vader himself.

This is a great 45 minutes, not packed with laughs but some real gems in here. It just lacks the 'defining joke' such as the struggle to get the old couch onto the Millenium Falcon in the first one. Saying that, I never thought Empire was the best Star Wars film anyway, more of a filler.
If there is a downer it is that this is a true bit of money making - the DVD is released before the episode is shown in the new series, but what you get is ONE Family Guy episode from the whole new series. You might just be able to watch it on TV for free.
Can't believe the reviews on here giving one star because the T-Shirt was the wrong size or crinkled in the wash............
Looking forward to the third in the series - there is a sneak peek on the DVD showing the cast doing a brief read through. Should something something complete the collection nicely.
For me it's those "little" touches in FG that make it funny - but being from the UK some of the American references go over my head.
I did enjoy this film, but again like the TV series there were sections of " I kinda think it's funny..." and then the "that is so funny (but usually so wrong)" - for instance Joe being the immperial recon droid that lands on Hoth with his damaged legs representing the driods under arms...did make me laugh...just waiting for Satan to claim me anyday now.
In short - if you like FG you'll like the film and as always in keeping with the Star Wars faith. Just don't expect the best thing you've ever seen.
Hope this helps and enjoy!
What this means is that the box contains is your Blu-Ray disk, as you'd expect, and an additional DVD. On this DVD is the digital copy to transfer to your iPod/iPhone or whatever your preferred media player is (a simple guide is included in the box). The DVD also works as a video disc in a normal DVD player. All this means you can watch this movie anywhere you like.
As you'd expect with a recently-created film on Blu-Ray, the picture and audio quality on this disc is great, even when upscaling it to fit a 1920x1200 monitor. Seth McFarlane does a superb job voicing the many characters that he does (one of the extras outlines just how many that one man alone does!), and Stewie as Darth Vader steals pretty much every scene he's in.
Whilst there is something to be said that the movie itself is perhaps not quite to the standard of its predecessor (Blue Harvest), there was nothing that put me off watching this film twice back-to-back. A few of the jokes are very American pop-culture, which can mean some of it completely misses most international audiences, and despite the fact that some gags are a little drawn out along with a somewhat questionable choice to have Chris' boss Carl as Yoda, it is still a great movie especially for anyone who loves family guy.
Highly recommended for Family Guy fans, and well worth a look if you're just a Star Wars fan!
