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 dialogue by everyone from Padmé Amidala to Mace Windu.

To Shmi or not to Shmi? Torn between duty to the Jedi, attraction to Padmé, and concern for his beloved mother, yeoman Jedi Anakin Skywalker struggles to be master of his fate. The path he chooses will determine not just his own destiny, but that of the entire Republic. And thereby hangs a tale.

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.

A scene-by-scene retelling of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, as if it was a play written by William Shakespeare.

First title in the series, WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S STAR WARS, shot to the NYT Bestseller List within one week of release. The two follow-up titles were also NYT best sellers.

Fans will love the Star Wars jokes and Shakesperean flourishes (R2D2 speaks to the audience; background characters discuss the finer points of Star Wars lore).

Builds on the huge following established by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE’S STAR WARS online and on social media.

This second of the three prequal books will especially appeal to those who grew up with Star Wars episodes I-III.

Text accopanied by fantastic wood-cut illustrations that place classic Star Wars characters in an Elizabethan-style universe. Will Jango Fett sport breeches and hose?

Gifty package and great design make this delightful book a super gift and self-purchase.

Readers will appreciate the humor and attention to detail. Who knew iambic pentameter could be so funny?

Includes 20 interior illustrations.
