Hunger Games Hero's Journey
Transcript of Hunger Games Hero's Journey
By Gary Ross
Call to Adventure
In Hunger Games, the call to adventure is when Katniss's little sister, Prim, has her name picked at the reaping Katniss must save her sister. Katniss knows that if Prim goes into the Hunger Games she will not come back alive so Katniss volunteers in place of her sister. Effie Trinket is the herald because she picked Prim's name from the bowl which made Katniss volunteer. This what started her journey in the movie.
The opening ceremonies is the first event that Katniss makes in the capital, which is the unknown world. The gaurdian of the threshold is Katniss's stylist, Cinna. Cinna gives Katniss a makeover and turns her into a person that the capital will like.
In the games their are many challenges that Katniss has to face including getting burned, getting stung by tracker jackers, hiding from the careers, defeating Cato, and helping Peeta. Katniss fails at one task and that is protecting Rue and that enrages Katniss's anger towards the capital. People that help Katniss along the way are Rue, Thresh, Haymitch, Cinna, Effie Trinket, and Caesar Fickerman. Though some of them helped Katniss more than others, they all helped her in the capital and in the games. One temptation that Katniss has is that she has the chance to kill Peeta and win the games on her own but knowing that is excatly what the capitol wants, she ends up overcoming the temptation.
In the Games
The Rule Change
The abyss is the hardest challenge the hero has to face, which in the Hunger Games is when Katniss has to figure out what to do when the rule is changed. The rule of the games was that two people of the same district can win but the rule is revoked when Katniss and Peeta are the last two tributes. Katniss has to decide to do what the capitol wants her to do which is kill Peeta or find out a way for her and Peeta can win.
Symbol of Rebellion
Katniss's revelation is when Haymitch pulls Katniss aside and tells her that the people in the capitol thought of her actions as rebellious. He tells her that she must act in love with Peeta, whether she actually is or not, and convince the capitol that she loved Peeta so much that she did not want to live without him. This is when Katniss realized her impact on the people of the districts because they looked up to her as a symbol of the rebellion and the capitol was not happy about that.
WARNING: Bad quality do not use head phones.
Winners of the Games
As Katniss and Peeta are crowned winners of the games they take the role of a "famous" people. They are transformed from poor kids in district twelve, to being known by the whole country. They have to act differently now because they are role models and cameras are on them at all times.
Atonement and Return Home
Atonement and returning home happen at the same time and in the movie and are compressed into one minute. When Katniss and Peeta return home all seems right in the world and everything is solved. They believed they convinced the capitol in their last interview that they were in love and that the capitol did not want to retaliate.
Gift of the Goddess
Gift of the Goddess
In this story the gift of the goddess is given before the return home. Even though the movie does not show Katniss receiving all of her awards, in the beginning it says that if you win the Hunger Games you will receive a house in victors village, money, and food for the rest of their lives. So the audience assumes that she receives these items. Also, Peeta was a gift of the goddess because he has fallen in love with Katniss and has given himself to her, whether she feels the same or not.
Katniss Everdeen is the hero of our story. The movie starts out with her family and her friend Gale in District Twelve, going through everyday life.
Haymitch is many archetypes including trickster and supernatural aid but he is mainly known for being Katniss's mentor. He helps Katniss through her challenges so that she can win the Hunger Games.
Peeta is the shapeshifter in the story because when Peeta and Katniss first start the games Peeta goes with the careers to keep them from finding Katniss. However, Katniss thinks that he went with them to help them kill her. Although at first Peeta seemed to be on a different side, towards the middle of the games Peeta proved to Katniss that he cared for her.
Cinna is the threshold gaurdian because in order to go to the capitol you must be wearing the style that they wear. Katniss must get a makeover from Cinna before she can go to the opening ceremonies in the capitol.
All these people helped Katiss through her challenges and continue to have the same personality and goals throughout the entire movie.
Effie Trinket is the herald because at the day of the reaping she pulled out Prim's name which forced Katniss to volunteer for her. She called Katniss up to the stage and took her to the threshold.
