The BBC News reports on continued efforts to establish a UK Church of the Jedi with services based on meditation, sermons about their spiritual beliefs, and light sabre training ('natch). Two brothers, Barney and Daniel Jones, are leaders of the new Church.
They plan to go to the official opening of a Surrey-based branch or "chapter" of the UK Church of the Jedi in April, and hope to hire an Anglesey venue for their own services.
Already six followers regularly meet in north Wales to discuss setting up the "church"...
However, any congregation member drawn to the dark side of the Force, embodied in the film by Darth Vader, would be advised they are following the wrong path and could face expulsion.
Barney explained: "Obviously, if someone starts to try and use the good force for greed and power, they are going to bring negative interference into the meetings.
"We cannot have the Force disrupted by negative interference."
