A Hero's Journey

Michael Brown and
Jake Hart The call
Aladdin received his call to adventure when he was caught stealing and sent to prison. The evil sorcerer, Jafar disguises himself as an old man and helps free Aladdin. There is a catch though, Jafar wants Aladdin to collect a lamp for him that is in the Cave of Wonders. The old man tells Aladdin of riches and wealth he can have if he completes this simple task. Challenges The Threshold The Transformation/Apotheosis Aladin faces many challenges through out his journey. His first quest or challenge is to fetch the lamp from the Cave of Wonders for Jafar. It would have been easy if Abu wound not have touched the treasure. Luckily they had the magic carpet to save them from being engulfed with lava or being hit with a falling boulder. The second challenge Aladdin faces occurs when he becomes trapped in the cave. The genie helps Aladdin get out. A couple more challenges he has is trying to marry Princess Jasmine and then save her and the palace when Jafar steals the genie and tries to take over. The threshold or starting point of Aladdin's journey begins when he enters the Cave of Wonders. This is the threshold because it's the jumping off point for the adventure, its the unknown world filled with challenges and dangers. In the Cave of Wonders there are piles of gold and other riches. The cave tells Aladdin and Abu not touch anything but the lamp.
When they arrive at the lamp, Aladdin tries to read the inscription on the lamp but when he rubs it to try to read it better a genie appears. During this step on the hero's journey, a moment of death and rebirth must happen after the hero has conquered their AbySS. There is also a change in the way they think or view life. This step is very crucial because its what makes them a different person. When this is completed the hero becomes the person they always wanted to be.
Aladdin transforms when he does the right thing and wishes the genie free instead of using his last wish to become a prince so that he could marry Princess Jasmine. This is his transfomation because he loved Jasmine but knew that the genie deserved to be freed and that there are other things more important than himself. The Return & Gift When Aladdin is about ready to go Jasmine's dad runs out to them and announces he has changed the law and a princess can marry who ever she feels worthy to be a prince. And with this new law Jasmine chooses to marry Aladdin. Thus giving Alladin the greatest gift of all. The gift of love. The End!!!
