The saga, while based on a reïmagining of Star Wars in a different setting and genre, does not tell exactly the same story, and some of the characters have different personalities than they do in the movies.
This is a seriously impressive body of work. Jackson Crawford is a lecturer at UCLA, where he teaches Old Norse, Scandinavian Mythology, Vikings, and Sagas. He’s transformed the entirety of the Star Wars movies (1-6) into an Icelandic Saga, with dual translations in Old Norse and English. Just skimming through it is amazing. For instance, here’s the scene with Han and Greedo:
“Let us throw axes,” said Hani the Duelist, “My father was a great viking, and I think this to be the manliest of sports.”
“Certainly it is,” said Grídó, “And we shall throw our axes at the same time.” He heaved up his axe, and Hani heaved up his own.
But Hani threw his axe first, and the axe dug all the way into the brain of Grídó, who fell down dead straightaway.
And then Hani the Duelist spoke this stanza:
I know what is proper:
I pray, with happy heart,
To all the mighty spirits of battle,
The ones who crafted the stars in the heavens,
And all the gods of war,
That a bloody eagle
Will perch with blood-stained beak
Above the rotting remains of Grídó’s scalp.
I killed him.
Then Hani the Duelist, son of Jarl Sóló, left the house, and with him was Tsiubakka the Frisian.
