“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” rolls out Friday, and who couldn’t use a refresher course to help fully enjoy the first offering in the iconic sci-fi movie franchise in more than a decade?

It’s probably been awhile since you’ve seen the first three “Star Wars” — “A New Hope” (1977), “The Empire Strikes Back” (1980) and “Return of the Jedi” (1983).

Luke Skywalker, Hans Solo, Chewbacca, Yoda and Darth Vader covered a lot of ground in those movies, discovered some unsettling family ties and even destroyed a couple of Death Stars.

It took awhile — more than six hours and 20 minutes of combined running time — and who has time for that?

TheWrap has created the Cliff Notes version of the trilogy — in roughly two minutes.

May The No-Frills Force be with you.
