‘Family Guy’ Delivers Eulogy For Carrie Fisher

“Family Guy” is paying homage to Carrie Fisher in its own special way.

Sunday’s episode of the long-running adult animated show will feature the funeral and eulogy of Angela. The character was voiced by late “Star Wars” star Fisher.

“Who could turn the world on with a smile? Angela,” main character Peter Griffin says in the clip above.

Angela’s death was far more comical than Fisher’s unfortunate real-life passing. Angela died “doing what she loved: Swimming less than 20 minutes after eating.”

Griffin concludes with a touching sentiment about the “fearless, spontaneous, and honest” Fisher. “She may be gone, but her voice will live on in DVD and Hulu Plus and tiny droid-projected messages. I may have lost a boss, but heaven has gained a princess.”

“It’s very much intended and a respectful goodbye to both the character of Angela and also Carrie Fisher,” the show’s executive producer Steve Callaghan told Entertainment Weekly. “Peter has a speech in there where he’s talking about Angela, but we the audience know that he’s also quite deliberately talking about Carrie Fisher.”
