Summer Reading: OG Star Wars Script Gets Shakespeared

star-wars-shakespeare-1.jpg

This is William Shakespeare's Star Wars, a version of the 'A New Hope' script rewritten in iambic pentameter with all that fancy old-timey talk. I bet Yoda sounds normal. I posted a couple more pictures of the book after the jump, but you can access a PDF of the first 16 pages HERE that I was afraid to rip because I only break copyright laws for myself. You know what I'm saying? It's like, I'm not getting in trouble for you, download your own pirated p0rn. Psyche, I'll download a nudey movie for you -- what do you want? Come on, I won't tell anybody. *whispering* THEY MAKE STUFF LIKE THAT?! You're a freak, give me twenty minutes.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots.

Thanks to lilco, Marc, Han Freaking Solo and JL, who were all in Shakespeare plays in high school. Cool story guys, but I was Peter Pan and got to fly, so there.

  • Fercho

    Yeap, but I guess they mean in case Shakespearized novelizations were also made for ESB and ROTJ.

  • Bubbubsky

    A good teacher needs to be using this in his/her class immediately.
