The Jedi Doth Return


I never knew this actually existed, but it seems that one man, Ian Doescher, has been rewriting Star Wars as Shakespeare for a few years now, and his final installment of the series, The Jedi Doth Return, is out now. It is exactly what it sounds like:

Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter. Illustrated with beautiful black-and-white Elizabethan-style artwork, these two plays offer essential reading for all ages. Something Wookiee this way comes!”
