Family Guy could be heading for the silver screen!

When asked on Twitter by a fan when he would get round to making a film of the sitcom, creator Seth MacFarlane teased that the Griffins could be heading to cinemas “soon”.

Speculation about a Family Guy movie has been relentless for years, with Lois Griffin voice actress Alex Borstein telling Digital Spy in 2011 that the prospect of one “would be amazing​”.

But not on Twitter, MacFarlane seems confident it’ll happen…

​I would love the opportunity to have a longer time to [tell a story]​,” she said.

​Having an hour-long format, and a longer time to tell a bigger, more intricate story, I think would be a really cool opportunity for Family Guy.​”

It technically wouldn’t be the first movie, with straight-to-DVD film Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story released in 2005. It eventually aired on TV as three separate episodes. 

This would be the first feature-length offering to reach the cinema though, so it’s kind of a big deal.

Family Guy airs on BBC Two and Three in the UK and Fox in the US.
