If you though Star Wars: The Last Jedi was epic, wait until you relive one of the movies most epic lightsaber fights in 16-bit resolution.
***Spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi below***
Created by animator John Stratman and uploaded to movie review YouTube channel Mr Sunday Movies, the video recreates the pinnacle moment in the film where Jedi Master Luke finally comes to the rescue of the fleeing Resistance in a last stand fight against the First Order and goes toe-to-toe with his troubled nephew.
The video reenacts the sequence beat-for-beat up until Skywalker becomes one with the Force while admiring a twin sunset on Ahch-To. All of the dialogue from the film appears word for word in speech bubbles, and the 16-bit version of John Williams’ score is as emotionally-stirring as its real-life counterpart.
It doesn’t live up to Adam Driver and Mark Hamill’s live-action performances, but there’s no denying it’s a fun alternative for those who have already seen The Last Jedi and want to experience one of its most iconic scenes in a new way. Watch above.
Stratman, please create Kylo and Rey’s Guardian fight scene next.
