How well do you know George Lucas? Take this quiz to find out

Say what you will about George Lucas and his effect on the Star Wars universe, but the truth is we wouldn't have one to celebrate without him. He brought science fiction to a new level of fandom in the film community, even though the studio heads and the man himself predicted the first film would become a financial disaster.

History, of course, would prove them wrong. Even 38 years after the release of the original movie, Star Wars is the fourth most profitable movie franchise of all time, behind James Bond, Harry Potter and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It also takes quite a mighty imagination to build such a vast story and universe. Most people need some kind of clinically prescribed, mind-alerting substance to dream up a world where futuristic samurais fight each other with swords made of photons and a smuggler flies a plane shaped like a giant toilet seat. So how much do you know about the man and his legacy? Find out with this quiz, the fourth in a series leading up to the premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." Then click here for all the answers and take our other quizzes to test your knowledge of Star Wars planets, Star Wars quotes and Star Wars weapons.

And if you are George Lucas taking this quiz, then you're technically cheating.
