Star Wars 8-bit game parody impresses 'Last Jedi' director

Even director Rian Johnson can't help but tweet about this video game tribute to "The Last Jedi" featuring Luke Skywalker, Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo and BB-8.

When the "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" movie trailer debuted in April, fans dissected every frame, debating what might be in store for Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and Luke Skywalker himself.

Now they can relive the best moments from the trailer as a retro 8-bit (technically 16-bit) game.

The video parody, posted on Wednesday, is the work of artist John Stratman as part of JoBlo's 8-bit trailers, which pay tribute to current movies as Nintendo-like video games of the past.

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."

Previously, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" got a retro game parody, as did "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," "Logan" and "Justice League," to name a few.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" hits theaters in December.
