What's Your ''Star Wars'' IQ?

Posted on

Q: Why is the Force like a roll of duct tape? A: Because it has a dark side, a light side, and it binds the galaxy together. Yes, this is what passes for a Star Wars joke. But what they may lack in humor, the many fans of George Lucas’ six-part space saga more than make up for in devotion. To mark the upcoming release of the final installment, Episode III — Revenge of the Sith — and to celebrate nearly 30 years of childhood-defining films — we present a quiz that we hope will take you back to a place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. . .
