May the Fourth be with you! 

"The Big Bang Theory" and Lucasfilm have teamed up to produce a Star Wars Day-themed episode titlted "The Proton Transmogrification."

For the episode, to air May 1, a group of special effects technicians from Lucasfilm's Industrial Light+Magic is re-creating Yoda's home planet Dagobah (including Star Wars props such as the iconic light saber). 

"We were approached by the Lucasfilm people to do something to celebrate Star Wars Day, which was nice," co-creator Chuck Lorre said. "We knew that Bob was coming back and Lucasfilm called us and we realized that that this might be an opportunity to mix both stories and come up with something special," showrunner Steve Molaro added.
