About This Quiz

Not only did audiences get the thrill of seeing their favorite intergalactic worlds (in a galaxy far, far away) get brought to life again in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," but they got to see plenty of familiar faces and meet lovable new characters, as well!

Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill,) Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) hadn't been on a "Star Wars" set together since the original three films. For any true fan, they could tell that the magic was still there.

We were also introduced to characters like the scrappy and tough Rey (Daisy Ridley,) maverick pilot, Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac,) reformed Stormtrooper, Finn (John Boyega) and R2-D2's next-gen cousin, BB-8.

If  you're a "Star Wars" fanatic, then you should know the star systems of the galaxy like the back of your hand.

Of course, you'll need to know the nitty-gritty details of the film, like who was smuggling what and what payment Rey received for scavenging, but if you're a super-fan, it should be a cinch!

May the force be with you!
