In 2001, Jediism, the spiritual mythology of Star Wars, was recognized as an official religion in countries around the world. AMERICAN JEDI follows a group of Star Wars fans who identify as Jedi Knights. These fans are so inspired by the religious philosophy of the Jedi that they have abandoned the religions of their childhood to become followers of Jediism.

American Jedi is more than fandom, more than religion; for each Jedi initiate, it's a personal crusade for the betterment of their world.
