Star Wars is among the most popular multimedia franchises in the galaxy, so it should come as no surprise that it’s been given its own annual holiday. Celebrated on May 4 (for obvious reasons), most fans will dedicate Star Wars Day 2022 to rewatching their favorite movies, running through their favorite games, or picking up some discounted merch. But there’s another way to celebrate Star Wars Day that’s a bit more obscure — having a quick chat with Amazon Alexa.

Whether you own a smart home device like the Echo Dot or just want to run the app through your smartphone, Alexa has a surprisingly robust knowledge of all things Star Wars. To access that knowledge, however, you need to know the right prompts. From chatting with Chewbacca to taking a Star Wars Trivia quiz, here are some fun Alexa commands to get you in the Star Wars spirit.

Don’t worry — this won’t permanently change Alexa’s dialect. Instead, you’ll be treated to a few funny phrases spoken like a true Jedi master.
Alexa is home to many fan-made skills, many of which work right out of the box without any installation required. The Lesser-Known Star Wars Facts is one such skill. Simply ask your robotic helper to open the skill, and you’ll be greeted with one of many obscure facts about the popular franchise. Use it as a way to brush up on your knowledge before throwing a Star Wars watch party and fooling your friends into thinking you’re a Jedi Master.
Will Alexa join the Dark Side? Or is she content where she is? Whatever the case, give this prompt to find out where Alexa stands on the age-old battle of Good versus Evil.
There’s no shortage of memorable quotes from the Star Wars movies, and this is an easy way to check out the best. Give Alexa the short command, and she’ll pull up one of the dozens of quotes stored in the Star Wars Quotes database.

“Knock knock. Who’s there? Luke. Luke who? Luke, up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the Millennium Falcon! Whoosh!”
Be prepared — in addition to being a Jedi Master, Alexa is also a master of groan-worthy dad jokes.
