The 'Big Bang Theory' gang will thrill fans with a 'Star Wars'-themed episode in May.
The popular sitcom is set to show a special Star Wars-themed episode next month.
May 1 will see Sheldon, Raj, Howard, Leonard and friends get together to celebrate Star Wars Day in a special episode called The Proton Transmogrification.
American comedian Bob Newhart returns for a third cameo after appearing in two other protonically titled episodes last year.
The official crossover means that Lucasfilm and CBS cooperated to create a set based on Dagobah, Yoda’s swampy residence, with effects house Industrial Light & Magic along for the ride, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Newhart, who has accumulated a collection of awards that includes three Grammys, a Primetime Emmy and a Peabody Award, is to appear as a mystery character from the Star Wars universe, as Jedi master to introverted genius Sheldon.
Insider talk is that a Star Wars VII announcement is also being prepped for Star Wars Day itself, May 4. — AFP Relaxnews
