Congratulations.” Fast forward to May 4, 2011, when the first celebration of Star Wars Day was organized in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Throughout the years, Star Wars fans have channeled their inner Luke Skywalkers and Princess Leias to honor George Lucas’ iconic universe. In 2015, astronauts aboard the International Space Station enjoyed Star Wars. Since fans will be looking for novel ways to honor the day in these unprecedented times, we thought it would be fun to play a round of Star Wars Jeopardy!
