The Force is with Deal or No Deal


In a somewhat “What were they thinking?” kind of move, game show Deal or no Deal is coming soon to a galaxy far, far away…


Two contestants will need the Force with them in a special, Star Wars-themed, winner-take-all edition of Deal or No Deal airing April 28. Deal will be transformed into a mecca of Star Wars characters and themes, complete with models dressed as Imperial stormtroopers and Princess Leia.

Contestant Elyse McCrillis will also get some help from none other than Carrie Fisher — the original Princess Leia — who will make a special cameo. Other faves from the franchise — Chewbacca and R2D2 — will also be on hand for some surprise arrivals. Of course, no Star Wars scene would be complete without Darth Vader: The bad guy steps in as the show’s villainous banker.

Ready to tune in to your inner, space-savvy dealmaker? The two-hour event airs Monday, April 28 (NBC, 8 pm/ET). — Anna Dimond,
