Not only did Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson see Stratman's retro rendition of the film's trailer, but he also shared it with his followers, garnering him a ton more attention and praise.

You can compare it to the official Last Jedi trailer for posterity, or just enjoy it as it stands: a retro throwback to something that has never existed.
