The Empire Striketh Back

I smell something Wookiee in the system of Dantooine….

I’ve been reading Ian Doescher’s Star Wars books. Far from normal Star Wars books, these tell the story of the Original Trilogy as Shakespeare might have written it: in glorious iambic pentameter.

Here’s the version of the intro from “Verily, A New Hope.”

He also has versions of Episodes V and VI: The Empire Striketh Back and The Jedi Doth Return.

These books are great. I love ’em.

Verily, what a nerd doth I be.
