The Ultimate "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" Quiz

How well do you know "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi"? Test your knowledge of the film that marks the end of the greatest trilogy of all time.

Introduction

May 25, 1983, was the release date of the movie that marked the end of a fantastic experience: the original Star Wars trilogy. It all started with a new hope for the rebels (1977), followed by the dark era that showcased the power of the Empire and its dark side (1980). This fitting conclusion includes one of the greatest space battle sequences of all time. Return of the Jedi finishes the original trilogy with a loud bang (could be the sound of the exploding Death Star II). The speeder bike chase on the Endor moon, space battle between Rebel and Imperial pilots, and Luke Skywalker’s duel against Darth Vader make this movie an action-packed blockbuster.

George Lucas made sure that directors properly executed his story and vision. In fact, Richard Marquand, the director of Return of the Jedi, said that “it [was] rather like trying to direct King Lear—with Shakespeare in the next room.” Many fans consider Empire Strikes Back the best-looking Star Wars film of the original trilogy; some even criticize its follow-up, Return of the Jedi, for its cinematography in comparison. However, it might be more accurate to say that these are more compliments to Empire Strikes Back rather than harsh criticisms of Return of the Jedi. You would be hard-pressed to find someone who says that the scenes shot on the moon of Endor were anything other than simply gorgeous. Even more impressively, there is an iconic shot of Luke’s face during his epic battle with Darth Vader. In this shot, half of his face is exposed to light and the other half is in the shadows. What an incredibly clever way to demonstrate the conflict he is experiencing in his mind! The movie is a masterpiece of cinematography.

So, let’s hope your memory skills do this film justice. How well do you think you know Star Wars: Return of the Jedi? Take the following quiz to test yourself and see whether or not you deserve a place on the Jedi Council.
