Now that Seth MacFarlane's Ted has gone on to become a reasonable success, he pretty much has free reign to do whatever he pleases (much like how he owns Fox's entire Sunday evening lineup). With this much power and money, MacFarlane thinks it may finally be time to re-start his plan for a full-length movie version of Family Guy.
During a recent chat with students at UCLA, MacFarlane noted that the film was no longer a matter of time, but "when." He apparently also has a slight, vague idea of what a Family Guy movie could be:
Now this is probably going to be terrible. I assume "impossible to do on TV" means that the content will be dangerously inappropriate. The last time that Family Guy had content that was "too much for TV" it involved abortion. And the time before that was just an elongated version of the show that they decided to run on TV anyway (which makes that jab at Simpsons not make a lot of sense). The show has really been off its game for the last eight seasons, so I really don't want this. If it was like one of those "Brian and Stewie" episodes though, I could reconsider.
