The old school, monochrome computing power of Apple’s 4th-generation IIc juxtaposes nicely with “The Last Jedi.”

WHAT: A recreation of the latest Star Wars trailer made with the computing power of a machine that’s been obsolete for 30 years.

WHO: Indonesia-based illustrator Wahyu Ichwandardi.

WHY WE CARE: Everything old is new again, and apparently vice versa. For instance, the trailer for the intergalactically anticipated new Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, has just been remade with Apple’s 4th-generation computer, the IIc. According to Mashable, recreating the trailer was a labor-intensive process that took about three weeks to complete. The process involved Ichwandardito holding plastic sheets over the monitor and tracing every single frame from the trailer, line by line. In other words he was really determined to make this happen. The hard work paid off in a vintage-style trailer that juxtaposes nicely with the space age graphics of The Last Jedi.
