Trivia

At the end after the story, Peter says "We got time for another story, it's called Without a Paddle (2004)" and Chris says "F**k you, dad!". This is because Seth Green (the man who does the voice for Chris) was in Without a Paddle (2004). See more »

Goofs

When Han hides the Falcon in a cave, before going in there is a disabled parking sign. However when they go in the cave, there is no disabled parking sign there. See more »

Quotes

Lois Griffin as Princess Leia: Han, we need you.
Peter Griffin as Han Solo: Oh, really? "We" or "I"?
Lois Griffin as Princess Leia: What do you mean?
Peter Griffin as Han Solo: You don't want me to leave because of the way you feel about me. I bet you're afraid I'm gonna leave without giving you a goodbye kiss.
Lois Griffin as Princess Leia: Ugh! I'd rather kiss George Takei.
George Takei: Hello.

Alternate Versions

When this aired as two-part episode on Fox a line was changed to eliminate a masturbation joke. When Chris/Luke Skywalker asked if his new right hand is "good to go" the medical droid's response was changed from "Yeah, but practice on a hot dog first. Otherwise you might rip your dick off." to "Wow, you're a hard guy to get compliment from!". See more »

EXCELLENT....Much Much better than the first Star Wars Episode.
21 December 2009 | by goatmetal-1See all my reviews

I actually downloaded this a few weeks ago, but just now watched it. It is MUCH MUCH more better and funnier than the first Star Wars episode. Without giving any of it away or spoiling it for anyone, I just wanted to say that every character that's in the regular Family Guy series has some part in this episode. Whether it's for the whole entire episode, or just a few seconds.

Plus a few cameo appearances.

It seems as though much thought was put into writing this episode. The last few Family Guy shows, in my opinion, seemed to be just "thrown out there", without a care so to say.
