‘The Big Bang Theory’ to Air a Special Episode for Star Wars Day

Big Bang Theory
In recent years, in some circles, May 4th has come to be considered Star Wars Day (as in, yes, “may the fourth be with you”). This year, in collaboration with (Disney‘s) LucasFilm, CBS‘ top-rated sitcom, The Big Bang Theory, will be doing a special episode to commemorate the occasion.

As has been reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the episode’s title is “The Proton Transmogrification,” and it will air on May 1 (itself, sort of like Star Wars Day, except for nerdish fans of workers’ rights; as opposed to the works of George Lucas).

The episode will feature a guest appearance from legendary comedian, Bob Newhart (PeekYou profile here), and — thanks to help from LucasFilm‘s Industrial Light & Magic — a reproduction of the swamp planet of Dagobah; first seen in the Star Wars film, The Empire Strikes Back.
