Plans for a Family Guy movie were announced in 2008, though Seth MacFarlane put the project on hold due his work on Ted and its sequel until Fox officially confirmed a film to be in development in mid-2018.

In a July 22, 2007 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane announced that he may start working on a feature film, but stated that "nothing's official". In TV Week on July 18, 2008, MacFarlane confirmed plans to produce a theatrically released Family Guy feature film sometime "within the next year". He came up with an idea for the story, "something that you could not do on the show, which [to him] is the only reason to do a movie". He later went on to say he imagines the film to be "an old-style musical with dialogue" similar to the 1965 classic The Sound of Music, saying that he would "really be trying to capture, musically, that feel." On October 13, 2011, Seth MacFarlane confirmed that a deal for a Family Guy film had been made, and that it would be written by himself and series co-producer Ricky Blitt.
On November 30, 2012, following the box office success of his directorial debut Ted, MacFarlane confirmed plans to produce a Family Guy film, confirming that he has a story for it, expressing his belief that he had a hard time conceiving a proper story for a theatrical film while working concurrently in the series by comparing it with the case of The Simpsons, which aired nineteen seasons before the release of The Simpsons Movie in 2007. However, a Family Guy movie was put on hold while MacFarlane worked on Ted 2. On August 10, 2018, Fox announced that a live-action/animated film based on Family Guy is in development. In July 2019, MacFarlane confirmed that there will be indeed a Family Guy movie.
