The next installment of the Family Guy Star Wars spoof hits Blu-ray and DVD on December 22, and if you haven’t seen the trailer, it’s worth checking out.

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…

The 44 minute movie will set you back $29.99 for Blu-ray version, and $22.98 for the DVD version.

    Odd.. those are the MSRPs I think… I just checked Amazon and you can get the blu-ray version right now on pre-order for $18.99. DVD for $14.99. And then the DVD of Blue Harvest+Something for $18.99… they don’t list a Blu-ray version of Harvest+Something combo. That’s probably not until later I’m betting.

    Regardless, I’m sure it’ll be just as funny as Blue Harvest.
