The search engine and the Lucasfilm movie franchise said Monday they have put information from the Star Wars universe into Google's Knowledge Graph, the first time for a fictional universe.
The Knowledge Graph answers direct questions, either typed on a computer or spoken into a mobile device. After typing, "Who is Luke's father?" for example, Google now presents the answer, Darth Vader, in a box that offers a short summary with clickable links for more information.
The tie-up was announced on what is known to fans as Star Wars Day — May 4, as in May the Fourth Be With You — and is part of the build up to "Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens," to be released in December.
