William Shakespeare's The Force Doth Awaken is an non-canon book by Ian Doescher. It was released on October 3, 2017. The book is a satirical retelling of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens written in the style of an Elizabethan-era play, specifically those penned by William Shakespeare.[1]

Publisher's summaryEdit

Star Wars Episode VII reimagined as a Shakespeare play, complete with Elizabethan verse, Shakespearian monologs, and theatrical stage directions!

As the noble Resistance clashes with the vile First Order, Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, and BB-8 are pulled into a galaxy-wide drama...in iambic pentameter. Star Wars fans and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike will enjoy the authentic meter, the reimagined movie scenes and dialog, woodcut-style illustrations, and hidden Easter eggs throughout. Chewbacca speaks! Supreme Leader Snoke gives a soliloquy! And the romance of Han Solo and Leia Organa take a tragic turn that Shakespeare would approve of. Fun, funny, and true to the spirit of Lucas films. The story may take place in a galaxy far, far away, but you'll be convinced it was written by the Bard.[1]
