New Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer gets the 16-bit treatment

To be honest, I was completely sold on this the moment that old-school, 1990s LucasArts logo popped up. 

Most everyone has already watched that awesome new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer a few (dozen) times, so here’s a vintage spin that fits right in with that old-school sci-fi vibe. Some intrepid fans have re-created the trailer in 16-bit videogame style, and this is the SNES game we always deserved.

The team does a solid job of re-creating the trailer shot for shot, though a few of the sprites are a bit too clunky (even the 16-bit era could do a bit better than the almost unrecognizable Han and Chewie here). But overall, this is an insanely cool clip — and should help bide the time a little while we wait for Christmas. 

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think:
