What If Star Wars Had Been Written By William Shakespeare?

This is the galaxy far, far away as the Bard would want it.

I love Star Wars and Shakespeare, but not as much as this guy, who is rewriting the entire saga in iambic pentameter for the die-hard Shakey-fans out there.

When you read the Shakesperean Star Wars synopsis, it makes a bunch of sense that someone would convert it into a play fit for The Globe:

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.
