William Shakespeare's Star Wars: Verily, a New Hope - Ian Doescher


Today is the unofficial International Star Wars Day.



Thanks to the internet, social media, and other grassroots organizations the outer space franchise has a holiday Star Wars Day, that all of its cult fans can enjoy. Its first organized celebration was in 2011 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Toronto Underground Cinema. May 4th was chosen as the date because it sounded similar to the one of the best known phrases from the film "May the Force be with you". May 4th is commonly celebrated by cult fans by attending festivities with costume contests, trivia games, showing of the original films, parodies, remixes, celebrity appearances, and live reenactments of the film. This event has become so popular that even Disney Parks have participated.



Speaking of parodies there is a Shakespearian book of Star Wars. The book is linked above. Has anyone read this or any of the other parodies? I'm quite interested as a cult nerd and curious as to how enjoyable the readings are. If there are any other parody books on the Star War series, please post below.
