Ted Plot

John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is a perfectly normal Boston native whose childhood wish for his teddy bear to come to life comes true. The bear, Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) remains his best friend into his adult years. Conflict emerges when Ted’s irresponsible and vulgar slacker lifestyle comes in the way of John’s attempt to embrace adulthood and his love-interest, Lori (Mila Kunis).


MacFarlane’s directorial debut is a live-action effort, with computer animation handled by visual effects facility Tippett Studio. MacFarlane wrote the screenplay with his Family Guy colleagues Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild. The opening crawl for the Family Guy episode “It’s a Trap!”, released on DVD on December 21, 2010, alludes to Ted in the sentence: “But Fox suddenly had dollar signs in their eyes, and they said, ‘Seth, if you don’t do Jedi, we’re not gonna let you leave to go direct your movie.'” MacFarlane announced the movie in the February 10, 2011, episode of Conan.

The film was set for a July 13, 2012, release in North America, but was pulled back to June 29 after the delay of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The film is due to be released in the United Kingdom on August 1, 2012 and in Australia on July 5, 2012.
