'The Last Jedi' Shakespeare Adaptation Coming July 10th

By: Dominic Jones

Lucasfilm and Quirk Books announced this week that the latest installment in the William Shakespeare's Star Wars series by author Ian Doescher will be released on July 10th, 2018.  The book, which is titled William Shakespeare’s Jedi the Last — Star Wars Part the Eighth, was announced on StarWars.com, along with the reveal of the cover which features Luke Skywalker front and center.  You can check it out for yourself below,

The cover was designed by Nicolas Delort, who also designed the covers for the other eight installments in the series.  Delort described his process for designing the cover to StarWars.com, saying,

"It’s always a challenge to 'Shakespearify' the Jedi because their robes already look almost medieval. The look here was inspired by the clothes Luke is wearing during his fight against Kylo at the end of the movie, mixed in with the traditional brown Jedi robes. Luke’s “projection” is younger and less scruffy looking, so I wanted to show a peak of an embroidered doublet beneath the Jedi robes to hint as his former greatness."
