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 fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.

Reimagined in glorious iambic pentameter, William Shakespeare's Star Wars will astound and edify Rebels and Imperials alike. Zounds! This is the audiobook you're looking for.

This audiobook is read by Daniel Davis, Jonathan Davis, January LaVoy, Marc Thompson, and the author, Ian Doescher.

Includes an afterword read by the author.

the audiobook is absolutely the best way to enjoy this title. Just as Shakespeare's plays were meant to be performed, so too is this work transformed when read aloud. Though there is some unevenness in the performances, it really comes alive with a lot of wit, with tons of inside references to provide laughs for fans of both Star Wars and The Bard.

My whole family enjoyed listening to (portions of) this play, even the 7-to-9-year-old crowd-- with a little bit of explanation here and there about the vocabulary.
