We’ve all been there. Sitting in front of that big screen, seeing lightsabers swish back and forth, hearing those inevitable quips from someone with a permanent half-smirk on their face: it’s hard to not want to be part of the Star Wars universe. But unless a rip opens up in time and space that somehow enables humans to traverse into a reality somewhat like the one that was spawned from George Lucas’ mind, it’s just not possible.
However, to somewhat make up for the lack of lightsabers in real life (health and safety inspectors, you can breathe easy now) we’ve concocted this quiz:
It’ll tell you precisely which famous Star Wars character you are. What you do with that information is up to you. Use it to figure out who you should dress up as for Halloween, let it be a fun fact about you when you’re inevitably made to do an ice-breaking exercise at the office, or merely use it as an excuse to roll out the ‘I have a bad feeling about this’ line whenever you wish.
Your potential candidates are Luke, Leia, Han Solo, Rey, Yoda, and Darth Vader - in honour of the Star Wars characters who made it into our sister publication Total Film magazine's greatest movie characters countdown.
Yes, almost all of these characters could be classified as ‘good guys’, but Darth Vader redeemed himself towards the end of Return of the Jedi, right? So at least if you turn out to be him, you can console yourself with that fact. Unless, that is, you prefer to see him as a Sith. Which is totally up to you (and not an ominous indication of your true colours at all).
