Illustration for article titled emStar Wars: A New Hope/em, Told Entirely In Haiku

Quite a lot of haiku, in fact. Exactly one hundred and ninety-eight.

This absolute work of art was created by British author and screenwriter Craig W. Chenery, who took a few days off his other projects to work on this. Apart from being a clever retelling of the entire movie, there are also a few fun lines thrown in. Such as:

Luke sells his speeder
"Won't be coming back again"
Until the sequel


And a few snarky comments, like:

Luke and Biggs scene cut
Won't be seen for twenty years
Poor Garrick Hagon

It's an excellent read, overall. Check it out:
