Return once more to a galaxy far, far away with this sublime retelling of George Lucas's epicStar Warsin the style of the immortal Bard of Avon. The saga of a wise (Jedi) knight and an evil (Sith) lord, of a beautiful princess held captive and a young hero coming of age, Star Warsabounds with all the valor and villainy of Shakespeare's greatest plays. Tis a tale told by fretful droids, full of faithful Wookiees and fearsome Stormtroopers, signifying...pretty much everything.
