Today is a special day in the galaxy, as we welcome the latest entry to the Star Wars saga: The Last Jedi! It looks like it’s going to be a good one, with some cool special effects and Luke Skywalker looking all grumpy. Maybe he misses shooting womp rats from his T-16.
Anyway…we all know that many (most?) IT pros aren’t just Star Wars fans, they are beacons of knowledge who safeguard the Star Wars legacy from folks who don’t know the difference between a nerf herder and bantha fodder.
Well, if you consider yourself to be a TRUE Star Wars fan, then today we invite you to put your SWIQ (Star Wars IQ) to the test by taking our quiz, which covers everything Star Wars: from episodes one through seven, to Rogue One and the TV show “The Clone Wars.”
After you’ve taken the quiz, please post your results in the comment section, along with anything else that you want our community to know. And please feel free to share this quiz with your colleagues, friends, family members — even total strangers who need some more Star Wars in their life.
Ready? Climb into your X-wing Starfighter, put on your seat belt, check your mirrors, and take off! (One final note: while there are some spoilers here about the movies, TV shows and games, don’t worry — there are NO spoilers about The Last Jedi.)
