Warning: the following post (and above video) contains spoilers. If you’re vaguely familiar with the Star Wars franchise, you’ll know that a lot of people die. In a quirky new video released by animation studio PipocaVFX, the extensive list of galactic deaths is reimagined in 8-bit form. From Qui-Gon Jinn to Obi-Wan Kenobi to Shmi Skywalker, the resulting tableaux are an odd combination of morbid reenactment and nostalgic entertainment. The latter is underscored by the arcade-like variation of “The Imperial March,” perhaps more commonly known as Darth Vader’s theme song. If you’re ready to relive some of the most depressing moments in Star Wars history, you can check out the full video above.
