Family Guy

Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story

‘Family Guy’ Movie Gets September DVD Release
LOS ANGELES ( – “Family Guy” will return to the world of DVD after owing its network revival in part to brisk DVD sales of the series.
Creator Seth MacFarlane is set to release a direct-to-DVD movie based on his irreverent animated FOX series on Tuesday, Sept. 27, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story” centers on Stewie — the precocious Griffin baby with the football-shaped head — having a near-death experience. He decides to mend his evil, world-dominating ways and sets out on a road trip to find his real father.
MacFarlane promises that a “special gag” will feature the voices of “Beverly Hills, 90210” stars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling, along with celebrity guest voices Drew Barrymore and Ron Livingston. Numerous special features are planned, including deleted scenes, still galleries, animatics and a commentary from MacFarlane to accompany the 83-minute, unrated movie.
“We also sandwiched special features around the movie,” explains MacFarlane. “It begins with an animated movie premiere, with the family arriving to watch it, and then there’s an after-party at the end.”
MacFarlane says that “Untold Story” is a thank you to many fans who purchased the series’ DVDs and contributed to FOX renewing the series two years after it was canceled in 2003. The temporarily canceled show also found fans in reruns on Cartoon Network. “Family Guy” resurrected in May, with 11.85 million people catching the fourth-season premiere.
