Overview

William Shakespeare's The Jedi Doth Return by Ian Doescher

Experience the Star Wars saga reimagined as an Elizabethan drama penned by William Shakespeare himself, complete with authentic meter and verse, and theatrical monologues and dialog by everyone from C3PO to Admiral Ackbar.

Prithee, attend the tale so far: Han Solo entombed in carbonite, the princess taken captive, the Rebel Alliance besieged, and Jabba the Hutt engorged. Alack! Now Luke Skywalker and his Rebel band must seek fresh allies in their quest to thwart construction of a new Imperial Death Star. But whom can they trust to fight by their side in the great battle to come? Cry “Ewok” and let slip the dogs of war!

Authentic meter, stage directions, reimagined movie scenes and dialogue, and hidden Easter eggs throughout will entertain and impress fans of Star Wars and Shakespeare alike. Every scene and character from the film appears in the play, along with twenty woodcut-style illustrations that depict an Elizabethan version of the Star Wars galaxy. Frozen heroes! Furry creatures! Family secrets revealed! And a lightsaber duel to decide the fate of the Empire. In troth, William Shakespeare’s The Jedi Doth Return has it all!

Ian Doescher has written a third and final exceptional installment to his Shakespearean Star Wars trilogy. The characters he has developed are phenomenal. My favorite scene, in particular, involves Darth Vader contemplating the fate of his son, and he thus transforms into Anakin Skywalker. Quite a powerful scene, reminiscent of many Elizabethan plays, and it does not disappoint. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys both Shakespeare and Star Wars. I am a huge fan of both, and I thoroughly have enjoyed this trilogy!

And if at all possible, you must search on YouTube for a recording of Ian McDiarmid (the Shakespearian-trained actor who played the Emperor, just in case you didn't recognise the name) at a panel of Star Wars Celebration reading selected scenes onstage. It will give you goosebumps.
