With less than a week before the book rolls out, Quirk Books have released a trailer for William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back, from author Ian Doescher, the author of William Shakespeare's Star Wars: Verily, a New Hope. You can see the video (and the official blurb from YouTube) below. William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back is due in stores on Tuesday, March 18.


Return to the star-crossed galaxy far, far away as the brooding young hero, a power-mad emperor, and their jesting droids match wits, struggle for power, and soliloquize in elegant and impeccable iambic pentameter. Illustrated with beautiful black-and-white Elizabethan-style artwork, these two plays offer essential reading for all ages. Something Wookiee this way comes!
