Through the course of his journey, from beginning to end, Odysseus showcases his pride, once by shouting his name at a mad Cyclops, and once more by killing the innocent and guilty alike in the massacre at his home hall. This violates the monomyth by its absence of a character change and the hero’s continued
In every Disney movie the villain is generally portrayed as evil or crazy, and it is taken as a personality type, but Disney movies also tend to sneak in a backstory for the villain geared towards explaining how they had come to be evil. And in the end, the villain is usually convinced that they should be “good” (again). So from this perspective, it may appear more so that the villain is not a personality type but a product of the situations they were in each moment that lead to he or she becoming the villain. Malcolm Gladwell is an award winning author who constructed a theory labeled The Power of Context, a chapter in his book The Tipping Point, to prove that people, such as villains in Disney movies, are products of their situations. In essence, to be a product of situations is to be a product of context.

In addition, The Giver is considered a masterpiece due to its stellar character development, which the character changes from being a major rule follower to breaking all the rules of the community, but he does all this for the greater good.

Different on the inside Though ‘The Nightmare before Christmas’ is widely credited to be directed by Tim Burton and appears to be, but actually it wasn’t. Known for his strange and eerie tales, Tim Burton stands out at Disney.
