Star Wars Empire Strikes Back animated gif by Folds Five

Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back is 124 minutes long but, thanks to one artist, you can watch the entire movie as a two-minute long 8-bit animation.

The Empire Strikes Back was released in US theaters on May 21, 1980. That's 33-years-ago on this day. To celebrate we're hosting this image.

The animated gif was actually first posted on Folds Five back in 2008. Since then, it hit Reddit, and has taken the Internet by storm. You can watch it in it's entirety below.


You can also watch A New Hope and Return of the Jedi on their site too.

Happy Anniversary Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. The Force is with you.

What was old is now new again with that simple style. It was the whole story though.

Would it be wrong to call it adorable? It was adorable.

Happy birthday, Empire Strikes Back. You may now have that spare glove Michael Jackson was keeping for you all these years.
