May The 4th Be With Thee: William Shakespeare's Star Wars

This July, Quirk Books will be releasing William Shakespeare’s Star Wars, which, as the title suggests, is a retelling of the first Star Wars film in the style of William Shakespeare. In honor of today being May The Fourth, a.k.a, Star Wars Day, the publisher organized a themed flashmob this morning on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

During the event in front of the highly populated famed museum (the “Rocky steps”), members of Urban Playground and the Drexel University’s Dragon Jedi performed three scenes from the book, using props such as placards for the opening credits (creatively used here), mock lightsabers, and an inflatable R2-D2, who of course, stole the show.

Check out the video here below, which includes the lightsaber duel between Darth Vader and his former master, Obi-Wan Kenobi!

William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will be released on July 2, 2013 in Hardcover and in ebook format for the Kindle.
