At a time in which cinematic universes are all the rage, let it be known that The Goldbergs and The Wedding Singer exist within a shared realm. That’s right—next Wednesday, the titular family of the hit ABC series will find themselves on the same plane as Billy Idol, Robbie Hart (Adam Sandler) and Julia Sullivan (Drew Barrymore) for some unforgettable in-flight entertainment.
Series creator Adam F. Goldberg took to Twitter to confirm the crossover episode—also titled “The Wedding Singer”—complete with a first-look. And as for Jimmie Moore (Jon Lovitz)? He’s in on the retro-action, too.
