The Hero’s Journey in the Movies

In this article for Kindred Spirit magazine​, Will Gethin explores the application of mythologist Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey map for storytelling in films like The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars and The Matrix.

“The Hero’s Journey has been used in numerous iconic films, from Easy Rider, Annie Hall, Dances with Wolves and Avatar, to the Harry Potter films, Lord of the Rings, Wild and Doctor Strange. It is also a map for our own lives and the challenges we face.”
