Star Wars conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie dies.

A great loss. George Lucas has always credited Ralph's work as the reason the original Star Wars finally got financed.

Ian Doescher gives us William Shakespeare's Star Wars, meticulously rendering the original dialogue into iambic pentameter and throwing in a Shakespeare allusion every page or so. It begins with a chorus in sonnet form, Romeo and Juliet style:

 

 


It is a period of civil war.

The spaceships of the rebels, striking swift

From base unseen, have gain'd a vict'ry o'er

The cruel Galactic Empire, now adrift.

Amidst the battle, rebel spies prevail'd

And stole the plans to a space station vast,

Whose pow'rful beams will later be unveil'd

And crush a planet: 'tis the DEATH STAR blast.

Pursu'd by agents sinister and cold,

Now Princess Leia to her home doth flee,

Deliv'ring plans and a new hope they hold:

Of bringing freedom to the galaxy.

In time so long ago begins our play,

In star-crossed galaxy far, far away.

For this longtime Cushing fan, watching Grand Moff Tarkin flub a line is revelatory.
