Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope originally hit theaters back in 1977, and was of course created by none other George Lucas. Well Ian Doescher decided to reimagine the classic story we all know and love, but this time written by none other than William Shakespeare.

Titling the book “Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope,” the story still follows the same plot, but has been written in iambic pentameter with plenty of Elizabethen-esque illustrations found throughout.  The video below helps would be readers get an idea of what they can expect from the book as Princess Leia and Darth Vader (along with other characters) have over-exaggerated conversations right from the book.
