If you’ve been looking for some fan created Star Wars action to appreciate, look no further than a new Han Solo short from Inside the Box Productions. The 16-bit retro looking series got its first episode today, and while it may not be 100% perfect, it’s freaking super impressive and worth spending time with.

The series is called Han Solo: The Dragon Void Run, and it is completely made with 16-bit pixel art. It’s fully animated and voiced, and it features all sorts of clever Star Wars Easter eggs to pick up on. It also tells what could end up being a pretty cool story, which is set after the events of A New Hope.

It follows Han Solo as he tries to get back to smuggling after his heroic assist at the Battle of Yavin. Although, before he can get his smuggling back on, Leia loops him back into the Rebellion.

Head on up above to check out the first episode!
