The adventures of notable characters reimagined in all their 8-bit glory complete with a retro-game soundtrack makes the trailer for "The Last Jedi" feel like a Star Wars game straight out of the '80s.
The fan-made video even caught the attention of "The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson, who tweeted on Wednesday, "Here's something pleasant! Makes me want to replay Monkey Island."
