    In later books, will Yoda speak in plain-spoken modern American English?

    A friend and I ran a twitter account that did this a year or two ago: https://twitter.com/IambYourFather

    Obviously I’m not accusing Doescher of ripping us off, but it’s funny that he came up with the exact same idea.

    Was JJ Abrams involved in this?  I ask because of all the lens flare.

    “modern tale as told by a 16th century playwright.”

    Wait. I thought Star Wars happened a long, long time ago..?

    I’ll hold out for William Shatner’s Star Wars…

    Now, all that needs to happen is for General Chang to quote it in the original Klingon.

    This is interesting, and I applaud the language. However if you’re looking for Star Wars in verse that still sounds like Star Wars then I suggest you google a free ongoing series called “The Idylls of the Force.” It still keeps the pacing and rhythm of iambic pentameter, but it also still sounds like the characters we know and love. That is all!
