The hero represents a person’s unconscious self, one that eventually manifests into their identity. Furthermore, each hero undergoes a journey, one that takes them through the three rites of passage: separation, initiation, and return. The ideas of Joseph Campbell and psychiatrist Carl Jung combine to create a series of alluring archetypes that have been historically accurate throughout numerous books and movies. The idea of the hero’s journey is present in The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Of Mice and Men. Each of these novels communicates the physical journey in a different way, but the psychology behind each step remains relatively consistent.

Joseph Campbell has come up with this idea that there is one three-stage formula- in which he calls the “Hero’s Journey”. This formula is the structure of the story, and is the basic form or shape of something. Most houses have four walls and a roof, they all look slightly different on the outside, but they mostly share this basic structure. Campbell says that although most stories are different on the outside, stories are almost always structured around these three stages. The first stage is when the hero leaves their everyday world and enters into another world, the second stage talks about when the hero is challenged by opposing forces, a series of test they must pass, and whether or not a victory is won. In the last and finally stage if the hero is victorious in the second stage, the hero returns to the ordinary world with a gift for the world.
The hero's journey is about a person who is called to go on a journey to complete a heroic task and in turn greatly benefits their community or people around them in some way. The movie Home, directed by Tim Johnson, is about an alien species called Boov trying to conquer Earth as their new home by attempting removal of all humans from the planet. After the Boov came to Earth, Oh accidentally reveals their location to their enemy, the Gorg. The Boov are now in danger and the only one that can save them is Oh. As Oh helps Tip find her mother and save the Boov from the Gorg, he becomes the hero no one expects him to be. The movie Home is a perfect example of the hero's journey as shown by Joseph Campbell’s theory.
