Star Wars Meets Shakespeare

StarWars.com Team | November 9, 2009

This week on Twitter, Star Wars fans are trying their hand at re-imagining a galaxy far, far again from the Bard’s perspective. By using the hashtag #ShakespeareStarWars fans have been quoting famous Shakespeare plays with Star Wars characters.

Here’s a listing of some of our favorites:

RT @TroyBeast: A plague on both your droids!

RT @RHicks: Tis a trap!

RT @gaikokujin: TK-421, TK-421, wherefore art thou TK-421?

RT @TopherPolack: Doeth or don’t doeth, thou thall not try.

RT @inter_zone: What lightsaber through yonder window breaks?

RT @inter_zone: A bantha, a bantha, my empire for a bantha!
