Joseph Campbell's hero's journey comes in many incarnations.

Any story that involves the evolvement of a hero could be plugged into that horribly misspelled synopsis. Try it with Odysseus or King Arthur. You might be surprised at how well it fits.

I agree. Also there are a few problems with this synopsis. Namely his aunt and uncle are that at the beginning, but then are replaced with "parents" at the end. To truly make the point, you need to be consistent with your replacements. One thing can't represent two all of a sudden.

But yes, this is the hero's journey, it is repeated often in many forms. In fact I studied Empire Strikes Back in English class for just that reason. Our teacher showed us the film to illustrate the structure of myth and the hero's journey. As is always said, there are no new ideas, it's how you execute them.

I grew to really despise that movie...so I'm glad we didn't go through any of the Star Wars episodes.

I really, really tried to fit at least one of my fantasy stories into that mold, and not one sentence fit. Damn. Obviously I'm not doing it right.
