Correct Answers:

1. C, Hera Syndulla
The B-Wing was created by master engineer Quarrie on Shantipole, which had a reputation as a one-way trip planet for even the most experienced pilots. It’s a good thing that Hera is no ordinary pilot then, isn’t it?

2. D, All of the above
Obi-Wan and Anakin froze themselves to rescue Jedi Master Even Piell from the Separatist prison known as the Citadel. Though she was told not to join them, Ahsoka smuggled herself along anyway.

3. A, Made the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs
Though Rey mistakenly heard that the Millennium Falcon made the Kessel Run in 14 parsecs, Han actually made the run in 12, giving him plenty to boast about for years to come.

4. B, Acklay, Nexu, and Reek
Obi-Wan faced the Acklay, Anakin faced the Reek, and Padmé faced the Nexu. The Reek was used for a short time as a mount to help take down the army of droids.

5. D, Venice
Design Supervisor James Clyne and Production Designer Neil Lamont presented Corellia as an industrial version of Venice, made up of archipelagos and connected by bridges. Most of the Corellia environments were created at Fawley Power Station in the south of England.

6. C, Admiral Ozzel
At first Admiral Ozzel doesn’t believe that the Rebels are on Hoth at all, but once Vader orders that they attack the planet, Ozzel brings his ship out of light speed too close to the planet. Vader gives him a permanent “demotion” and hands over control of the ship to Captain Piett.

7. A, L3-37
L3-37 was built from former astromech and protocol parts. She is very vocal in her belief for droid rights.

8. B, Luke Skywalker
The costumers of Rogue One wanted a connection to the original trilogy, so they took the design of Luke Skywalker’s farm boy costume and made it darker.

9. C, Kylo Ren
The chrome armor was originally planned to be Kylo Ren’s, but J.J. Abrams said, “I want him totally different. He’s not leading the Stormtroopers dressed as one of them!” Kathleen Kennedy loved the design though, so Abrams created Phasma specifically to wear the armor.

10. A, Darth Vader’s
Only one copy of Darth Vader’s costume and helmet was created for the film, so the crew had to be very careful with it. Colin Wilson, a wardrobe assistant, said “If you dropped [the helmet] or something, you could take your pay cards and walk right out the door.”
