Lucasfilm has unveiled the cover for the seventh installment in Ian Doescher's William Shakespeare's Star Wars series. The books are adaptations of the Star Wars films, written in the style of Shakespeare's plays. The cover for William Shakespeare's The Force Doth Awaken -- Star Wars Part the Seventh features a very Shakespearian looking BB-8. The book is slated for an October 3rd release (just in time to revisit The Force Awakens before The Last Jedi hits theaters). Check out the cover below,
Doescher also spoke with StarWars.com about what went into picking the cover for the upcoming book, saying, "Out of all the covers in the series, I’d say it’s the one that leans more towards comedy. BB-8 is such an adorable character, giving him this Elizabethan attire just makes him look funny."
