This “Last Jedi” 8-bit trailer is an adorable dose of “Star Wars” nostalgia

Star Wars already brings a lot of nostalgia for some of us. But now there’s an 8-bit version of The Last Jedi trailer to really cement all of those ~feels~ in your heart. Yes, someone has recreated the trailer for the upcoming film scene by scene and it’s amazing. Let’s take a look at this amazing feat of nerd-dom.


The 8-bit version of the trailer opens the same way as the actual trailer with Rey training with Luke. But the 8-bit lightsabers are pretty cool looking. And they even make the fun sound effects you’d expect from an 8-bit lightsaber. Can we buy one of these somewhere?!


And guessing you thought Poe and BB-8 couldn’t physically be any cuter than they are in the actual films but you’d be wrong. These are adorable and 10/10 would play this game! Dibs on being BB-8.


Instead of hearing the lines from the trailer, we get to read them in 8-bit form — a reminder of those games we use to play as a kid. Luke’s last line about the fate of the Jedi is still pretty ominous. Eeeek!


You can watch the full, awesome 8-bit version of the trailer here — and it’s even Rian Johnson approved.

And in case you somehow forgot the original and want to compare, you can watch it here:

We have so many questions about The Last Jedi, but we’ll have to wait a while to get the answers. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters December 15. But we’d love an 8-bit game to play in the meantime *hint hint.*
