Something, Something, Something Dark Side trailer

Stewie strikes back.

The new trailer for the next instalment of the Family Guy Star Wars parody has been released through iTunes today.

This episode, which satirises The Empire Strikes Back in the style of the long-running comedy animation, features most of the characters returning in their previous roles, and at first glance, appears to be much more in line with the show’s style rather than simply aping the film, as was a common criticism of Blue Harvest.

Something, Something, Something Dark Side is released on 22 December 2009 through 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
