Family Guy the movie is coming soon.
It took The Simpsons 17 seasons to make a movie where a pig traps an entire under a dome. It may take Family Guy only 15 seasons.
There have been rumors of a full-length film for years. In 2012, Seth MacFarlane revealed that “we do know what the Family Guy movie will be.”
MacFarlane then praised The Simpsons Movie for being “hilarious,” but he had one problem. “it’s a story,” MacFarlane commented, “they probably could’ve done on TV. There could’ve been an episode that had that plotline. That’s the challenge with animation. You pretty much can do any story you want, so what is the reason for the movie? We finally hit on the answer to that question, and it will be something that would be impossible to do on TV.
Seth MacFarlane took to Twitter saying that Family Guy movie is still in the works.

So there you have it: “Soon.” Technically, there’s already been a Family Guy movie: Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story. But the special was released straight to DVD, so it doesn’t really count.
