Big Bang Theory Does The Force Awakens

Big Bang Season 9: The Force Will Awaken Sheldon, Leonard & Co.

There’s been an awakening… and The Big Bang Theory is definitely going to feel it.

The Star Wars-obssesed sitcom’s upcoming ninth season will feature a storyline about The Force Awakens, exec producer Steve Molaro confirms to TVLine.

“We’re talking about how that will be weaved into [the guys’] lives,” he says of the J.J. Abrams-helmed pic, which lands in theaters on Dec. 16. “And we have some really cool ideas.”

Considering Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Raj’s obsession with the franchise — not to mention their brushes with Star Wars vets Carrie Fisher and James Earl Jones — Molaro concedes, “it would be weird for us not to mention” the film.

“Obviously, we’re all excited about it, just as human beings — and the characters are as well,” notes the EP, adding, “I don”t know exactly how it’s going to play in, but it won’t be ignored.”

    and don’t forget Sheldon and Leonard’s visit to Skywalker Ranch, too.

    Yes, I agree with Mike. I wish Professor Proton hadn’t died.
