Family Guy

I re-watched the Family Guy take on 'Return of the Jedi' today and I enjoyed it, though I think the first one (Blue Harvest) was the best. I think these adaptations (featuring Family Guy characters as Star Wars characters) is really amusing and a great money-making idea for the show. But now that the show has done all three of the original Star Wars films, where do they go next? Do they give up the idea? Hardly. Here are some suggestions:
– The Star Wars prequels- They mentioned at the end of the new one and it seems logical. They would have to do some recasting obviously but several of the characters would be the same. Stewie as Anakin, Herbert as Obi-Wan, Cleveland as R2D2.
– The Indiana Jones films- Another of the more obvious choices and could be a goldmine if they do it. Peter as Indy, Lois as the female lead in all three (just recast her), Stewie as the villain in each one (just the idea of him in Temple of Doom yelling 'Kali Ma!' would make me laugh). And in the third one you could have Peter's grumpy Catholic dad as Henry Sr.
– Star Trek- The flipside of the coin would be to do one of the Star Trek films. Not the first one, I hope. Peter as Kirk, Stewie as Spock, the giant chicken as Khan. I could see it.
– Harry Potter- Casting adults as the kid characters wouldnt be a huge stretch, they do it in Hollywood all the time. Peter as Harry, Lois as Hermione, Chris as Ron and Stewie as a slightly-gay Voldemort. Plus they'd have seven or eight episodes worth of material.
Other ideas: Pirates of the Carribbean, Bram Stoker's Dracula, the X-Men films, Casablanca, Gone With the Wind, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Wizard of Oz (featuring Joe as a wheelchair-bound Tin Man)…
