Writers have teamed up with Lucasfilm special effects experts for a themed special that will air three days before the unofficial geek holiday.

In the Proton Transmogrification episode, the TV show’s regulars will celebrate Star Wars Day, and TV veteran Bob Newhart will reprise his Emmy-winning role as Arthur Jeffries.

The Lucasfilm Industrial Light + Magic technicians will recreate Star Wars sage Yoda’s home planet Dagobah for the special episode.

  1. That was good, not too far, and with a real story that had impact beyond just cheap laughs.
