Star Wars Saga Reimagined as William Shakespeare Play Complete with Elizabethan Iambic Pentameter

The force is with this eBook: William Shakespeare Star Wars. Iambic Pentameter? Check. Elizabethan inspired drawings? Check. Kindle Version? Check. Unfortunately, this book does not double as a light saber, but I know where to get one.

Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas’s epic Star Wars in the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Wars abounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare’s greatest plays. ‘Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearstome stormtroopers, signifying…pretty much everything.

The furious fowl take on a new enemy in the latest installment of Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise. Hours ago, in a country not too far away, the noble Galactic Empire was suddenly attacked by a rogue band of birds.

You can join in the attack on the Empire as you explore more than 80 new levels set in iconic locations like Tatooine and the Pig Star. Can you dodge Imperial pigs, laser turrets, Tusken Raider pigs, and the dark side of the Force to get all three stars?

‘Angry Birds Star Wars’ Trailer Confirms Pig Vader Character

The official release of Angry Birds Star Wars is still a couple days away, leaving just enough time for one final trailer.

The following video only shows a single level being played for a few seconds, but that is enough to tell us that there is a Pig Vader character. The character appeared to be using The Force to hold bits of the level in place, and once he was defeated the level fell apart.

New ‘Angry Birds Star Wars’ Trailer Reveals Obi-Wan Bird Character

The latest installment in the game franchise involving fierce fowl is due to be released on November 8th, and the trailers have just begun to get interesting. Rovio posted yet another trailer today and for the first time they’ve shown us a character which I think is cool.

If you skip to about 26 seconds into the movie you’ll see what I think is a bird based on Obi-Wan Kenobi. This bird appears to use The Force to attack the piggies. Now that looks like a neat trick, unlike the blaster, lightsaber, or taser inspired characters which Rovio has already shown us.

Collaborative Video Project ‘Star Wars Uncut’ Returns To Remake ‘Empire Strikes Back’

Star Wars Uncut

Back in 2010, former Vimeo developer Casey Pugh premiered Star Wars Uncut’s remake of Star Wars IV: A New Hope. The Star Wars Uncut project was a collaborative video adventure that divvied up the entire movie into 15-second clips, which were claimed and recreated by fans and then stitched together into one crazy-awesome epic homage to the original film. Now, Casey and Star Wars Uncut have returned to remake Empire Strikes Back and you can be a part of it.
