‘Star Wars’ Stormtrooper Crucified: Life-Sized Display Hangs In Church To Represent ‘Fight Against Dark Side’

A general view of Darth Vader and Stormtoopers at the 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Closing Night red carpet on day eight of the 14th annual Dubai International Film Festival held at the Madinat Jumeriah Complex on December 13, 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

A Star Wars stormtrooper has been crucified and currently hangs in a historic church, causing mixed reactions among churchgoers. According to the Daily Mail, the life-sized stormtrooper display was unveiled on Tuesday to represent the “fight against the dark side.”

The crucified Star Wars stormtrooper was erected as part of an art display, called Art Below, in a Central London church. The creator of the statue, Ryan Callanan, apparently constructed the controversial display as a way to raise awareness for the disappearance of the brother of the event’s organizer, Ben Moore.

The Telegraph reported on Tuesday that a priest actually had to come into the St. Stephen Walbrook church in London to decide whether to keep the crucified stormtrooper as part of the art display. Some parishioners apparently complained that the crucified stormtrooper was offensive to the Christian religion.
