Do You Have the Force?

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…Someone at Lucasfilms decided that, hey, maybe there should be a couple more Star Wars films within the famed Star Wars series. And that is how Star Wars: the Force Awakens was created.


In honor of the movie that comes out soon, on December 18th, Pentucket students decided to pay tribute to the series with a throwback to the original Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.


The following quiz, taken from the website “iKwiz”, tests all the knowledge your cerebro might have with the classic film that started it all. Be warned, this quiz is not just for any padawan.


Out of the 17 focal-group PRHS students that took this quiz, only one student got the high score of 5 out of 7. The majority of the students, 64.7%, got a 2 or less.


With this in mind, are you ready to become a Jedi? Then take the quiz below, and comment what score you got. Answers can be found at
