The Hero’s Journey is a cyclical journey commonly used in literature. Joseph Campbell was the first to realize this pattern is frequently used in stories, movies, and fairytales. The cycle contains twelve significant milestones that occur as a hero explores an unknown special world. This cycle resembles a clock in a few ways. The twelve hours represent the twelve stages. The minutes in between resemble the minor, yet important events. Similar to the clock’s order sequence, the hero’s journey must occur in a specific order; beginning with status quo and ending with status. The hero's journey has many regulations, therefore, many stories do not qualify. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is not an example of A Hero’s Journey because it does not possess certain components included in the hero’s journey.
The Hero's Journey is a traditional story time that follows a cycle in terms of “Departure, Initiation and Return”, always the hero has an adventure, then the crisis, the victory, and finally the return. The stories or historical events have “The Hero’s Journey”, because every story has its own hero.
The hero’s journey is a very key and notable process in movies. A good example of the process executed well is in the movie Finding Nemo. The hero’s journey has many parts, but 3 parts are really shown and executed well in the movie. These three parts in the movie that are well executed and can show the hero’s journey. The three parts are the refusal to call, tests, allies, and enemies, and the road back(flight)Through the journey of Finding Nemo Marlin goes from an overprotective father to bonding with is son. In Finding Nemo those 3 parts really show the journey of the
Everyone has heard a good hero story, because they are everywhere, in the media, in history, and in even with each other. Tales of action and adventures have been around since humans have known how to tell stories, but every story has a similar journey that they embark on. The tale of the hero has many variations, but they each follow the same basic pattern that Joseph Campbell describes in his book A Hero with a Thousand Faces. Some stories only follow the basic outline of a hero, and others can be traced along the route exactly. An example that follows the outline exactly is The NeverEnding Story (1984) which is a movie based on a German book by Michael Ende. The tale is very interesting because it does not follow the path of only one
The movie Pitch Perfect is a great example of the Hero’s Journey, without being too obvious. It follows a college freshman, Becca Mitchell, who has no desire to attend college. She begins the steps to the Hero’s Journey when the Bellas ask her to join their acapella group. She refuses them, because they seem uptight and boring. Later on, Chloe, her mentor, hears Becca singing in the shower and convinces her to go to tryouts. This is when she crosses her first threshold, because the auditions make her feel out of place. Also this is when she ventures into another “world”. She begins their training for their competition, beginning her rivalry with the leader, Aubrey, who is clearly a threshold guardian. Also, Becca is slowly falling in love with

A Hero’s Journey is a Monomyth that was created by Joseph Cambell. This is a cycle that was made to show how the cycle goes when there is a hero in a story. The cycle can be applied to basically any journey or hero story. The Hero’s Journey plays a role in the movie Star Wars: A New Hope, the phases that is follows is call to adventure, supernatural aid, meeting the goddess, atonement with the father, and the ultimate boom.
“The Hero’s Journey is a pattern of narrative that appears in drama, storytelling, myth, religious ritual, and psychological development” defined by American scholar Joseph Campbell. In all stories, there is some version of this “pattern of narrative”. In these stories a hero usually goes on a journey that changes them is some way. This idea of a “hero’s journey” is portrayed in the movie Shrek. In this movie the main character Shrek, a grumpy and lonely ogre has his land taken over by Lord Farquaad to be used as a fairytale creature refugee. To get his land back, he goes on a journey to rescue a trapped princess named Fiona for Lord Farquaad. Along doing so, Shrek faces several challenges which transformed Shrek. By the end, Shrek is no longer grumpy and lonely but has family and friends. He also falls in love with Fiona which proves to be a challenge. Shrek’s journey and transformation to get his swap back demonstrate the hero’s journey and it’s three main stages the Departure, the Initiation, and the Return.
Being a hero is hard work! First the hero must accept his/or her calling to become a hero. After that he/ or she goes into a world unknown and try to fix it. Final thing after all the work is accomplished the hero gets to return home. In a hero’s journey stages are Departure, initiation, and Return phases of a hero’s life.
The first stage of the Hero’s Journey is the Ordinary World. In the Ordinary World, the hero has a normal life where the character is either not satisfied with his or her life or has a vivid contrast to the journey that the hero is going to take. This is similar to how the main character in the novel The Sword in the Stone by T.H.White
The hero’s journey describes the pattern of a story that is seen in myths, drama, fantasy and others. It includes specific archetypes that create that pattern . Without the majority of these archetypes, the story could not be defined as thus. Star Wars: A New Hope is a classic example of the hero’s journey. Luke is the hero, while the others play essential archetypal characters. One of the most important is Princess Leia. She first plays the vulnerable damsel in distress, but she quickly changes into a powerful character. She soon becomes the goddess for Luke and the temptress for Han Solo. Princess Leia plays three vital archetypes throughout the journey, the damsel in distress, the goddess and the temptress.
The archetypal Hero’s Journey is a pattern found in literature throughout many novels. In the novel The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien it shows a hobbits’ journey through a tough world on a quest to defeat a dragon. The hobbits’ name is Bilbo, and he and his acquaintances undergoe many trials and obstacles trying to reach the dragon. The novel A Dog’s Life by Ann M. Martin is about a dog who started out in a shed and is trying to survive out in the world as a stray. The dog’s name at birth was Squirrel, she withstands many trials such as fights and injuries with her companions. So, both authors portray the hero’s journey, but there are equal similarities and differences in their techniques.
Mythologist, college professor, and author Joseph Campbell came up with the idea of the Hero’s Journey, which had a big impact of literature, and still does today. The Hero’s Journey consists of four main parts, with more ideas under each part. These four parts are Departure, Testing, Fulfillment, and Return. Each part is a key aspect of the Hero’s Journey. In The Hunger Games, written by Suzanne Collins, Katniss Everdeen goes through this journey. Katniss goes through each and every part, becoming a hero without even knowing it.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is an excellent utopian/dystopian fictional story about a man who fights for the freedom to read. The government in this world has made almost every book (with a few exceptions) illegal. They have done this due to the contradictory ideas found in them. It was thought that all of the contradictions might confuse citizens on what is the truth and what isn’t. This book, along with being a utopian fiction, follows the Hero’s Journey archetype. Even though this book may not have purposely been made as an example of the Hero’s Journey the book and many others follow the paradigm. It may not be a perfect example, however, it definitely has it’s moments.
