Star Wars fans all over the world are gearing up for "The Force Awakens", which opens in theaters on December 18th. Here in Wyoming, the force is strong among Jedi Warriors.

In fact, there's even an online Jedi Council Forum for fans here in the Cowboy State. There's also a parody of the old Charlie Daniels song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" called "The Jedi Went to Wyoming".

Some Wyoming residents have even studied at the Jedi Training Academy at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Several years ago, two "Wyoming Padawans" from Sheridan battled Darth Vader himself in an epic lightsaber duel.

While the Temple of the Jedi Order has yet to open a congregation in the Cowboy State, Harrison Ford owns a ranch in Jackson, which makes Han Solo himself a part time Wyoming resident. Be strong Wyoming Jedi Warriors and may the force be with you.
