Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ’Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearstome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.
HAN: Pray tell, what shall the cargo be?
The boy, two droids, and ne're a question ask'd.
HAN 'Tis what, a touch of local trouble here?
OBI-WAN Nay, let us simply say it thus: we would
Imperial entanglements avoid
HAN Aye, there's the rub, so shalt though further pay.
Ten thousand is the cost, and ev'ry bit
Shalt though deliver ere we leave the dock.
LUKE Ten thousand? Fie! We could our own ship buy
For such a sum as this.
HAN -A goodly jest!
For who should pilot such a ship -- shouldst thou?
LUKE Thou knave, I could indeed!.
