Description

As the noble Resistance clashes with the vile First Order, Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, and BB-8 are pulled into a galaxy-wide drama in iambic pentameter. Star Wars fans and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike will enjoy the authentic meter, the reimagined movie scenes and dialog, woodcut-style illustrations, and hidden Easter eggs throughout. Chewbacca speaks! Supreme Leader Snoke gives a soliloquy! And the romance of Han Solo and Leia Organa takes a tragic turn that Shakespeare would approve of. Fun, funny, and true to the spirit of Lucas films. The story may take place in a galaxy far, far away, but you ll be convinced it was written by the Bard.
