This Indonesian Illustrator Remakes 'Star Wars' Trailer with an 1984 Apple Computer
Indonesian illustrator Wahyu Ichwandardi made it his mission to remake the upcoming Star Wars trailer using only an Apple llc.
Inchwandardi, who is based in New York, drew the trailer by hand on a KoalaPad from the '80s, using a 1984 bitmap paint program, Dazzle Draw.
In the '80s, the setup was deemed the "most complete computer graphics system," but it's clear from his process how far we've come.
Holding plastic sheets over the screen for reference, he painstakingly traced each frame, resulting in the short masterpiece you see before you.
In total, the project took three weeks, 48 floppy disks (at 140KB of memory each), and resulted in 288 image files, which came out to a total 6MB of data.
The result is the most recent “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” trailer with a retro aesthetic.

For comparison, here’s the original trailer for Star Wards Episode VII. . It is pretty close to the original, and we cannot watch the trailer the same way again!
Even Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker, of course) approves.
