Heroic Journeys

Today’s Excerpt:

Watch “The Hero’s Journey According to Joseph Campbell” (3-min video) from TED Ed, which illustrates the hero’s journey.

Note: This video contains brief animated blood as a hero slays a dragon. It also analyzes The Hunger Games briefly at the end.

Alternatively, you might watch “Joseph Campbell & The Hero’s Journey” (5-min video), which outlines the theory using Star Wars and is slower paced.
