It would have to be something that can't be done on TV...
EW.com reports that Seth MacFarlane spoke about the possibility of a Family Guy movie while at mtvU's "Stand In" series today (to announce a search for college students to present Oscar statues).
He said: "It's just a matter of when. It's hard to do that while you have the series going on at the same time; I think that's why it took The Simpsons 20 seasons to figure out how to do it. We do know what the Family Guy movie will be. The Simpsons movie, I thought, was hilarious, but the one criticism I would have is that it's a story 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."
When asked about what the story would be, he added: "I can't tell you what that is."
