A First Look at the Final Installment of Star Wars in the Style of Shakespeare
“This above all: to thine own self be true.”
One of William Shakespeare’s most famous lines strikes at the very thematic core of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and now the final film of the Skywalker saga is getting the full Bard of Avon treatment.
William Shakespeare’s The Merry Rise of Skywalker by Ian Doescher, coming July 28, will reimagine The Rise of Skywalker as a Shakespearean drama, complete with authentic meter and verse, and theatrical dialogue by everyone from Kylo Ren to Babu Frik. It will also complete Doescher’s incredible nine-book Star Wars-as-Shakespeare series.
