Intrepid fans have used emoji to recreate everything from Edvard Munch’s The Scream to Beyoncé’s “Drunk in Love”. Heck—reinterpreting art with little digital faces and icons is practically international pastime. Now you can enjoy the emoji treatment of a true cinematic masterpiece: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Using icons like those that circulated on Twitter in the promotional push for the film last fall, the clip rather astutely captures J.J. Abrams’ entire two-hour-plus movie in just three minutes. It even features BB-8’s flaming thumps-up and a rather interesting interpretation of Kylo Ren’s use of the Force on Rey. The video is the latest installment in Disney Interactive Media’s “As Told by Emojis” series, which puts a similar twist other Disney properties (they’ve previously recreated Frozen and Aladdin). Watch the video above, then check out some storyboards from the creators below.
