The rise of pop culture religions like Jediism and Matrixism especially among those of Generation X shows the influence of the movie industry and its role in providing meaning. As such, one case study will be undertaken to analyse the rise of the Jedi religion, as a result of the Star Wars movies. The theological critique draws on Alistair McFadyen's framework of worship, joy, sin and idolatry, and shows that Campbell's monomyth reflects the dominant enlightenment perspective of western civilisation in which the right to choose has been made primary.
