Later this month, “Family Guy” will release their second "Star Wars" spoof “Something, Something, Something Dark Side,” just in time for the holidays. Creator Seth McFarlane spoke with the LA Times Hero Complex blog about plans for a third spoof of “Return of the Jedi,” and possibly others.

While McFarlane said that “Jedi” will be the last "Star Wars" spoof, if we’re lucky that won’t be the last one they do. "Indiana Jones," "Back to the Future" and "Star Trek" were some potential spoofs the creator mentioned.

He added: "The difference is that Lucas gave us the rights. Lucas agreed to let us do this, and that's a rare thing. Most legal departments are much more overprotective."

Considering that the “Back to the Future” and “Indiana Jones” series are some of my favorite movies of all time, if the show spoofed those, it has the potential to be hilarious. I can only imagine which characters they would call to play each other. Peter equipped with a whip and the iconic green hat? I could see that happening.

I’d be particularly curious to see what they would do with “Back to the Future,” which is my favorite film. Stewie as Biff? Or perhaps he could do a strange take on Marty McFly? Either way, I hope these spoofs come soon, because judging from the one’s the show have already done, they will be very funny, indeed.

Look for “Something, Something, Something Dark Side” on December 22, 2009.
