2015 is the year of Star Wars! Since the first film debuted on May 25, 1977, the number of Star Wars fans have grown exponentially. And with over 88 million views in the first 24 hours, the Force Awakens trailer has clearly electrified the Star Wars fanbase once again. It’s an exciting time to be a Star Wars fan!
But what do these faithful followers call themselves?
From “Trekkers” and “Ringers” to “Trubies” and “Potterheads,” almost every fan community has a funny or clever nickname.
So, undoubtedly the Star Wars devotees should have an awesome moniker too, right?
