If you didn’t lose interest in Star Wars with the ewoks, Greedo shooting first, Jar Jar Binks, or the love story in episode two… this is a good week for you. Disney announced the cast of the upcoming sequel. set to take place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, and yes! it will feature Han Solo, Luke and Leia, and at least one other female cast member! Damn you George Lucas et al, I’m still going to watch this shit.
It all seems ripe for farcical reimagining doesn’t it. In the vein of last years William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by local publisher Quirk Books, The Renegade Company is holding a one-off Star Wars themed event to raise money for its upcoming productions. Costumes! Shakespeare! Lightsabers! Faux-Southern theater-rockers Jawbone Junctions!
Help us Renegade, your our only hope. This could only be held on one date, couldn’t it: [The Arts Parlor, 1170 S. Broad Street] May 4, 2014, therenegadecompany.ticketleap.com.
