Those of you that are a fan of classic literature, these William Shakespeare Star Wars mashup plays are a comical pop culture twist on the traditional Shakespearean plays. Dubbed William Shakespeare's Star Wars, these plays merge Shakespeare's celebrated plots with popular Star Wars characters to create a fresh retelling of the legendary Star Wars saga.

The play begins with an evil lord (Sith), a knight (Jedi) and a princess (Leia) that needs rescuing. With Wookies and Stormtroopers, all the favorite Star Wars moments have been carefully included in this Shakespearean play. Told in the traditional Shakespearean stanza form with iambic pentameter, rhyming couplets and a ton of metaphors, this Star Wars rendition is both funny and a literary feat.
