Xian: Voyage of the Pilgrim

The Story: It’s Pilgrim’s Progress told through the lens of Star Wars, as young Xian must navigate an allegoric world of strange creatures and giant robots.

Spiritual Emphasis: Pilgrim’s Progress has long been hailed as one of, if not THE, greatest Christian allegory in history (excepting, of course, Jesus’ own parables). It was also written not long after the King James Version of the Bible, making its language and some of its ideas inaccessible and incomprehensible to the general reader. The idea behind XIAN: VOYAGE OF THE PILGRIM is to take the allegories and adventures of young Christian and translate them for an audience weaned on Star Wars and The Matrix and comic book/manga adventures.
