There’s been a lot of Star Wars in the news this week, with Lucasfilm unfurling some of its plans for future films and TV shows as part of the press around the imminent Obi Wan Kenobi series. And it’s been a minute since we’ve done one of these single-theme film quizzes, so here’s 30 questions covering everything from “the Skywalker saga” to the spin-offs.

Once you’ve completed this trilogy of trivia, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Hopefully, we’ll have no bad feelings about this…
