Jimmy Kimmel: Star Wars trivia game puts Force Awakens cast against Arden Hayes | EW.com


The cast of Force Awakens battles 7-year-old superfan in game of Star Wars trivia


The only thing Arden Hayes knows better than U.S. presidents is Star Wars.

On Monday’s special Star Wars edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Jimmy Kimmel had the 7-year-old whiz kid take on the cast of The Force Awakens in a game of trivia from a galaxy far, far away.

Hayes was joined by R2D2 for the match, but he didn’t need any help. He answered all but one question correctly, and shut out Team Force Awakens (Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Adam Driver) in the process.

“I studied for this,” a defeated Ridley said to Kimmel towards the end of the game.

Hayes rose to prominence in 2013 thanks to his in-depth knowledge about U.S. presidents. He has appeared as a guest multiple times on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss politics, geography, and the periodic table of elements.

For his efforts on Monday night, Hayes was given a wealth of Star Wars toys, and a stormtrooper signed by the Force Awakens cast and director J.J. Abrams. “Thanks,” Hayes said upon receiving the gift. The politeness Force is strong with this one.
