If you’ve never had the pleasure of reciting William Shakespeare‘s “Star Wars,” maybe this new title won’t be as exciting to you. But, for those drama kids and galaxy far, far away enthusiasts, it’s kind of the best thing ever. It also isn’t the ONLY popular franchise to get The Bard treatment, as “Back To The Future” now ALSO has very special iambic pentameter release from Ian Doescher.
Celebrate Back to the Future with this illustrated adaptation of the cult classic script, retold in Shakespearean verse by the best-selling author of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars.
In the iconic film by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale, teenaged Marty McFly travels back in time from the 1980s to the 1950s, changing the path of his parents’ destiny . . . as well as his own. Now fans of the movie can journey back even further—to the 16th century, when the Bard of Avon unveils his latest masterpiece: William Shakespeare’s Get Thee Back to the Future! Every scene and line of dialogue from the hit movie is re-created with authentic Shakespearean rhyme, meter, and stage directions. This reimagining also includes jokes and Easter eggs for movie fans, from Huey Lewis call-outs to the inner thoughts of Einstein (the dog). By the time you’ve finished reading, you’ll be convinced that Shakespeare had a time-traveling DeLorean of his own, speeding to our era so he could pen this time-tossed tale.
