Just received an email about Ian Doescher's William Shakespeare's Star Wars (Canada, USA, Europe) and decided to post the book trailer.

Here's the blurb:

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.

Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter—and complete with twenty gorgeous Elizabethan illustrations–William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the book you’re looking for.

The REALLY interesting thing will be to see how they handle Yoda's way of speaking in Empire.

It's nice to know that after all these years people are finding new and interesting ways to capitalize off of Star War's popularity.
