When news of One Direction’s Family Guy appearance broke in January, we predicted it’d be the perfect “mid-hiatus treat” for fans craving a reunion (albeit an animated one). Now, the band’s episode is finally in sight, and the first sneak peek proves it was definitely worth the wait.
The clip, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, shows the four lads sitting around a campfire with Stewie, who tells them a most horrifying tale involving -- gasp! -- non-skinny jeans. You have to hand it to the Family Guy animators -- they nailed each guy’s appearance, right down to Harry Styles’s floral-printed blouse and Louis Tomlinson’s track jacket.
Though all four band members are depicted in the episode, only Louis and Liam Payne recorded dialogue for it. They’ll also be joined by another dude close to 1D: band dad/creator Simon Cowell, who will pop up in the episode to voice himself.
Family Guy co-executive producer Cherry Chevapravatdumrong told EW, “Liam and Louis were very funny and an absolute pleasure to work with. Or, as the Directioner part of me would say, ‘OMG LILO I’M SCREAMING!’”
Yep, he gets it.
One Direction’s Family Guy episode airs this Sunday at 9 p.m. on Fox.
