How Well do you Know Star Wars? Take Our Quiz

Recently the co-author of the book “Star Wars: Absolutely Everything You Need to Know” shared some interesting facts about everyone’s favorite galaxy on We’re talking details you probably have never thought about (like how many credits a bounty hunter is being paid for a job, or, which docking bay Han Solo uses in Mos Eisley), but now that they’ve been gathered you may, like us, find yourself suddenly very curious about the hidden lifeforms living inside a clone’s nostril (seriously, they’ve done the research).

Obviously you don’t need to know this stuff, but, there are some truly interesting facts here. One of the things that made Star Wars so special is how George Lucas and his huge list of collaborators made the universe feel so lived in. It really looked and felt like a real place, dents in the droids and all, a place that really would have a list of which ships were docked in which bay in Mos Eisley because it was somebody's job on Mos Eisley to schedule that stuff.

We’ve taken a few of our favorite facts and put them into question form below—see how well you know the Star Wars universe by playing below:
