For the past seven or eight years, there have been rumors of a feature-length Family Guy movie, which would be released in theaters across the nation.
In 2015, creator Seth MacFarlane told fans that the movie would be coming soon, but everyone is wondering what he meant by “soon” because we haven’t heard much news from this alleged film. There was one report claiming it would mix animation with live-action, but that’s it.
So what’s happening with it? Is it still coming? Well, during a recent appearance on the Today show, MacFarlane was asked about the movie, and he made a promise that it’s still coming.
I’ve been talking about this for ten years. The Family Guy movie is still on my to-do list… I have a pretty clear sense of what it’s going to be. I have for some time, but I just haven’t gotten around to it.
Not exactly the most promising update as it sounds like he doesn’t have the motivation to work on it right now, but maybe that passion will come back soon.
If he needs some extra motivation, take a look at the success of the 2007 The Simpsons film, which was loved by fans and made over $500 million at the box office.[mashshare]
