In this episode of Star Wars, there was dramatic irony and situational irony. Dramatic irony is when the audience knows something the characters in the movie don't know. The audience knows that Obi Wan Kenobi taught Darth Vader before Darth Vader turned to the dark side. This is an example of dramatic irony as the audience is told this but nobody in the movie knows. Situational irony is when "the final outcome is contradictory to what was expected" (Watt, Situational Irony.) In this episode, situational irony occurs when Darth Vader battles Obi Wan Kenobi and Obi Wan Kenobi loses and is killed. This is situational irony because the audience thinks the Obi Wan Kenobi will win and Darth Vader will be killed however the opposite happens.
The theme of
A New Hope
is that good will always beat evil. Even though Obi Wan Kenobi was defeated by Darth Vader, the Force helps Luke, in the form of Obi Wan's voice, destroy the Death Star.

The Light aspect "suggests hope, renewal or intellectual illumination" and the Dark "implies the unknown, ignorance or despair" (Mrs. Fornari, Archetype Packet.) In Star Wars the Light is Obi Wan Kenobi as he suggests hope by planning ideas and executing them to help save Princess Leia. Darth Vader is the Darkness as he implies despair as he has multiple troops and is considered the most powerful Sith. The Light vs. Dark symbolic archetype happens when Darth Vader battles Obi Wan Kenobi and Obi Wan Kenobi is beat and killed by Darth Vader.
Luke fits the character archetype of The Hero. The hero is the protagonist of the story whose whole life is a series of well marked adventures. Luke is the protagonist of Star Wars because the whole movie follows him and his journey to success.The circumstances of the hero's birth are unusual, and he is raised by a guardian. Luke is orphaned immediately after he is born because his mother passes away during childbirth and his father runs away to join the evil forces, Luke is then cared and looked after by his uncle and aunt. The hero must leave his home and everything familiar to enter an unfamiliar and challenging world, only to return matured as a person. As a teenager Luke leaves his home planet of Tatooine and joins Obi Wan Kenobi on his journey to the Death Star. Luke experiences the change from a familiar to an unfamiliar setting because he leaves his uncles farm only to end up on the most powerful ship in the Galactic Empire. It is there that he faces many challenges that will make him a more mature.

Leia fits the character archetypes of The Damsel in Distress, Platonic Ideal, and White Goddess. A Damsel in Distress is a woman that needs to be rescued by a hero. At the beginning of the movie Leia is on a rebel ship that is being captured by the The Galactic Empire and just as she is just about to be captured she records a video message on her droid R2D2 saying “Help me Obi Wan you're my only hope” (Star Wars). Its a desperate message, therefore the viewer automatically believes that she is a weak character that needs saving because she is not capable of self defense. Later in the movie Luke sees her message, and being the hero of the movie immediately sets off to save her. Much later in the movie the viewer starts to see that Leia is in fact not a damsel, but a platonic ideal. A platonic Ideal is a woman who is a source of inspiration to the hero who has and intellectual rather than physical attraction to her. when trying to escape the Galactic Empires ship Leia takes charge in leading her companions out, Luke admires her and her determination, however he is also physically attracted to her because she is a princess. Leia my not have all the characteristics of the Platonic Ideal but she sure does act like one. The White Goddess is a good, beautiful maiden who is usually dressed in light, bright colors. Leia is a princess therefore the viewer would assume that she was a good person. Several time throughout the movie Leia is called beautiful by more than one character. And throughout the whole movie Leia is dressed in white, like a goddess. In the movie Star Wars Princess Leia is the character archetypes of the Damsel in Distress, Platonic Ideal, and White Goddess.
Obi Wan Kenobi fits the character archetype of the Mentor in the Mentor Pupil Relationship. The Mentor is usually older and wiser than the hero, which Kenobi is. They are also often the hero's teacher, constantly teaching them new skills that they will need to survive their journey. Kenobi teaches Luke how to use a lightsaber and how to control the force. Throughout the movie Kenobi is constantly giving Luke tips on how to find and use the force. Not only was he Luke's teacher, but he was also Luke's father’s teacher. The Mentor often serves as a father/mother figure. Luke is orphaned and looked after by his aunt and uncle, however when Luke runs away on his journey Kenobi acts as if he is Luke's father, constantly looking after him and guiding him to do the right things. Even after he is dead he uses the force to communicate with Luke and guide him on the right path. The Mentor gives the hero gifts such as weapons and information, Kenobi gives Luke a lightsaber that originally belonged to his father and he also gives Luke information about the Rebel Alliance. Obi Wan Kenobi fit the Mentor in the Mentor Pupil Relationship because he fits all the characteristics listed; elder, teacher, father figure, and giver of gifts.
Vader fits the Character archetype of The Shadow. The Shadow is a worthy opponent with whom the hero must struggle in a fight to the end. They can also psychologically represent the darker side of the hero. In this episode Luke has not completely master the art of being a jedi therefore his in not ready to fight Vader, so Obi Wan does the fighting for him however in future episodes Luke is ready to face Vader and battle to the death. During on of their battles Vader tells Luke that he is his father and tries to get to join the dark side. Physiological Vader is Luke's dark side because he is his father, and Luke want to know him better. Darth Vader is The Shadow in the movie Star Wars because he is a worthy opponent and represents the dark side in the hero.
Han Solo fits the character archetype of a Companion in a Hunting Group of Companions. A Hunting Group of Companions is a group of companions that are willing to face hardship and ordeal is order to stay together. Luke first meets Han in a bar, Han has agreed to take Luke and Obi Wan to the Death Star where they will rescue Leia. Obi Wan, Luke, Han, and Chewbacca Hans Wookie friend are a hunting group of companions, on a mission to save the princess. At the end of the movie the Rebel Alliance had arranged plans to blow up the death star. In order to complete their mission they needed pilots that were willing to risk their lives and defeat the Galactic Empire. Luke asked Han to fly one of the ships however he turns Luke down saying he had done enough for him, but in the end when Luke was about to be blown to pieces Han shows up with Chewie as a rescue party. Han fits the characteristics of a companion in the character archetype of a Hunting Group of Companions because no matter what he will try anything to help out his fellow companions, even if his attitude gives off other vibes.

When a story first starts the hero is usually naive and inexperienced which Luke is, he has lived on a farm all his life and does not completely believe that the force is real. The hero is usually born and raised in a rural setting away from cities, Luke was born and raised on the planet of Tatooine away from the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliances. The hero is usually an orphan, Luke is an orphan because his mother died during childbirth and his father ran away to join the Galactic Empire. The Hero in the Hero's Journey usually has a wise or strange being as their mentor, Luke has Obi Wan as his mentor, his is wise and has the power and strength of the force in him, which makes him quite strange to others. The hero is always called to adventure, in the case of Star Wars R2D2 is the call to Luke's adventure because he shows him the video message that Leia left when she was being captured. The hero usually has a beautiful lady that is his inspiration, Leia is Luke's inspiration when it comes down to blowing up the Death Star, a powerful Galactic Imperial ship. The hero often encounters monster or monstrous men, Luke encounters men like this when Obi Wan takes him to a bar in order to find someone to fly them out to the Death Star where Leia is being held captive.

The hero must struggle with something valuable and important, Luke struggles twice in the movie, when he was saving Leia and when he was to blow up the death star. The hero sometimes suffers from an unhealable wound, Luke's suffers the wound of witnessing his mentor Obi Wan being killed by Darth Vader. The hero usually receives help from a divine force, even after Obi Wan dies he still uses the force to communicate with Luke and tell him to use the force when dropping the bomb to explode the death star. The hero must go on a journey, learn a lesson and change is some way, Luke's journey was to save Leia from being killed by the Empire, and blow up the Death Star. From going on this journey Luke learns that he is a lot more capable than he thinks. And at the end of it all the hero undergoes a ceremony to identify his excellence, at the end of the movie Luke is given a medal from the Rebel Alliance because he was able to destroy the Death Star. Star Wars, just like many other amazing stories undergoes many of the steps listed in The Hero's Journey.
