Hero's Journey of Equality 7-2521 from Anthem and Luke SkyWalker from Star Wars
Transcript of Hero's Journey of Equality 7-2521 from Anthem and Luke SkyWalker from Star Wars
Call to Adventure
The Status Quo
Approach the Cave
There is a civil war, it's the rebels vs. the Galactic Empire. Luke is stuck living on a moisture farm with his aunt and uncle (his dad is "dead") in the middle of the desert. They collect droids. Luke is not allowed to hang out with his friends because he is constantly doing chores. He wants to know more about the rebellion but his uncle won't let him leave the farm.
Uncle Owen:[about C-3PO and R5-24]
"Luke! Take these two over to the garage will you, I want them cleaned up before dinner."
" But I was going to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!"
"You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done."
Equality 7-2521 feels he needs more than what the society is all about the great "we". He also feels like he can give more to the city than by just being a street sweeper he wants to invent things in the house of scholars. In the home for the street sweepers, he feels alone, out of place and different. He also feels that he is cursed because he wants to know more and he thinks about things that are forbidden in his society. He thinks he is evil.
"We [Equality] were born with a curse. It has always driven us to thoughts which are forbidden. It has always given us wishes that men may not wish.We know that we are evil, but there is no will in us or power to resist it." pg 19
R2-D2 shows a mysterious hologram message showing princess Leia asking for Obi Wan Kenobi's help. Luke wants to go help her, but at first he refuses the call because he thinks he can't get involved. He thinks he has to stay on the farm and work.
[hologram Leia speaking]
General Kenobi. Years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to convey my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack, and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope."
Equality 7-2521 and International 4-8818 were picking up garbage at the edge of the city near the theater when they found a grate in the ground. They pulled up the grate and under it was a tunnel Equality crawled down into the tunnel and realized it was something from the unmentionable times
Another thing that could have been a call to adventure was the Saint of the Pyre. When Equality was younger there was a man that said the unspeakable word and his tongue was cut out and he was burned at the stake in front of the entire town. When he was burned alive he didn't look in pain, he was smiling. And as he died, he was looking at Equality, like he was trying to put the unspeakable word in his mind.
We were gathering papers and rags which the wind had blown from the theatre, when we saw and iron bar among the weeds. It was old and rusted by many rains. We pulled with all our strength but we could not move it. So we called International 4-8818 and together we scraped the earth around the bar. Of a sudden the earth fell in before us, we saw and old iron grill over a black hole."
Luke is saved by Obi Wan Kenobi, who knew his dad. Obi Wan knows about the past and the truth that Luke wants to know. He gives Luke a talisman, which is his father's lightsaber. He asks Luke to come with him to save Leia.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
"I have something here for you. Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn't allow it. He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damn fool idealistic crusade like your father did.
"What is it?"
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
"Your father's lightsaber."
He leaves the home of Obi Wan, goes home and realizes that his uncle and aunt are dead and their house is burned down. Then he and Obi Wan go to Mos Eisley Space Port. Storm troopers try to stop them from entering the city but Obi Wan gets them to let them pass. In the city they meet Hans Solo.
Once Equality found the tunnel, he started going down into it every night for three hours. In the tunnel he conducts experiments and creates inventions. He found out about electricity and magnetism while experimenting.
"Each night, we run to the ravine, and we remove the stones which we have piled upon the iron grill to hide it from men. Each night, for three hours, we are under the earth, alone."
A monster in the bar at Mos Eisley Space Port starts a fight with Luke.
Luke, and the rest of the crew are attacked by storm troopers when they try to leave the space port.
Luke was tested on his ability to use the force by fighting with the blast shield down over his eyes. He succeeded
Luke had to fight storm troopers to rescue the princess.
Luke, Leia. and Hans Solo are almost crushed to death in the giant garbage disposal, and Luke almost drowns when he is sucked under the garbage/sewage by the garbage monster.
[Luke yelling at C-3P0 when they are about to get crushed in the garbage smashers]
hut down all the garbage smashers on the detention level! Shut down all the garbage mashers on the detention level!"
Equality was "caught" one night because he forgot what time it was and came back to late the council wanted to know where he was. They put him in jail and lashed him until he told where he'd been, but he never told. So he stayed in jail.
Asked International not to tell about tunnel
Equality broke the rules- talked and befriended the Golden One/Liberty 5-3000
He invented the lightbulb box
Equality had to steal candles, manuscripts and other supplies from the council so he could run his experiments
Council Speaking] "Take our brother Equality 7-2521 to the Palace of Corrective Detention. Lash them until they tell."
The Millennium Falcon is sucked into the death star. The ship is scanned but Luke and the rest of the crew aren't found. They stop the next group of storm troopers that try to enter the ship and they take their armor. Luke rescues the princess but when they are trying to escape they are attacked by storm troopers. Luke and Leia get trapped on a bridge while fighting the storm troopers. Meanwhile Obi Wan Kenobi is fighting Darth Vader.
Equality Escapes from jail and goes back to the tunnel,where he plans to show his lightbulb invention to the council of scholars.
"It was easy to escape from the Palace of Corrective Detention. The locks are old on the doors and there are no guards about."
Obi Wan Kenobi fights Darth Vader. Darth Vader wins and kills Obi Wan. Luke is devastated.
[Darth Vader and Obi Wan are about to fight.] Darth Vader:
"I've been waiting for you, Obi Wan. We meet again, at last. The Circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now I'm the master."
" Only a master of evil, Darth"
Equality 7-2521 goes to the Council of Scholars to present his lightbulb box. He thinks the council will be fine with it and forgive him of everything he has done. He thinks that they will be fascinated by his invention. But when Equality goes to the council they reject him and scorn him for all the sins he has made and they think his lightbulb invention in evil, and it will ruin the work of the council. Equality is enraged and he takes his invention from them and he runs from the council to the uncharted forest.
"We seized our box, we shoved them aside, and we ran to the window. We turned and we looked at them for the last time, and a rage, such as it is not fit for humans to know, choked our voice in our throat."
Equality 7-2521's treasure is love, the Golden One , individuality, freedom, pride, care free, satisfaction, knowledge, no society restrictions and a sense of self that he didn't have in the society of the councils.
"We walked on till the sun had set. When the shadows gathered among the trees, we stopped in the hollow between the roots, where we shall sleep tonight. And suddenly,for the first time this day, we remembered that we are the damned. We remembered it and we laughed."
R2-D2 gets the
Death Star's plans
and Luke, Leia, Hans, R2, and C-3P0 all escape from the death star.
Princess Leia : [
sighs] "At least the information in R2 is still intact."
"What's so important? What's he carrying?"
Princess Leia :
" The technical readouts of that battle station. I only hope that when the data's analyzed a weakness can be found. It's not over yet."
Luke goes back to the Death Star with a pack of fighter jets on a mission to shoot the weak spot in the Death Star's system. Luke is the last jet still able to shoot so he goes in and he aims correctly by using the force. He succeeds and destroys the Death Star.
Equality 7-2521 and the Golden One find a house from the unmentionable times on a mountain in the uncharted forest. They decide to live in it. In the house Equality finds books, clothes of many colors and many other things used in the unmentionable times. By reading the books he discovers the word "I"
"And there, before us, on a broad summit, with the mountains rising behind it, stood a house such as we have never seen, and the white fire came from the sun on the glass of the windows."
After blowing up the Death Star Luke returns to the rebel's home planet
Equality plans to return to the city at some point and get all his friends and "all the men and women who's souls have not been killed." He plans to get them all to join him in creating a new city, like the cities of the unmentionable times where there is no big "we". He also plans to destroy the cities of the "we".
"I shall steal one day, for the last time into the city of my birth. I shall call to my friend who has no name save international 4-8818, and all those like him."
When Luke returns to the rebel home planet after destroying the Death Star, he realizes that he is no longer lonely or longing for adventure. Luke now has friends, respect, and the force.
Equality gives himself and the Golden One new names. He names himself Prometheus and the Golden One Gaea. Also he has a new baby coming. Equality and the Golden One have now started using the word "I".
" I have read of a man who lived many thousands of years ago, and of all the names in these books, his is the one I wish to bear. He took the light of the gods and he brought it to men, and he taught men to be gods. And he suffered for his deed as all bearers of light must suffer. His name was Prometheus."
"It shall be your name."
Princess Leia rewards Luke and Hans for rescuing her and for destroying the Death Star.
[Luke and Hans get reward, Luke is trying to convince Hans that he should stay and help fight.]
"So. You got your reward, and your just leaving then?"
"That's right, yeah. I got some old debts I gotta pay of with this stuff."
Equality decides that on every doorway in his new city he is going to write the word "ego". This is because he thinks every person should have a sense of self. There should no longer be the great "we".
"And here, on the portals of my fort, I shall cut in the stone the word which is to be my beacon and my banner. The word which will not die, should never perish in battle.The word which can never die on this earth, for it is the heart of it and the meaning and the glory. The sacred word: EGO."
One who provides guidance or training
One who is a powerful inspiration/magical helper
Those who "guard the gates".
Those who help the hero on their way
Herald- One who issues the call to Adventure
Obi Wan Kenobi
is the mentor for Luke. This because when Princess Leia needed to be rescued, Obi Wan Kenobi taught Luke how to use the force and he helped Luke rescue the princess.
Obi Wan is
. Luke knew that Obi Wan was very wise because when Obi Wan was teaching Luke to use the force, Luke always listened to Obi Wan, even when Obi Wan told him to do crazy things, like fight with the blast shield helmet on.
The Saint of the Pyre
is the mentor for Equality 7-2521. This is because he gave Equality the strength to be himself and keep going to do his experiments because Equality knew that the Saint of the Pyre new what the unspeakable word was and he died smiling because of it.
is the Herald for Luke. This is because Luke is called to adventure when R2-D2 plays the hologram of Princess Leia asking for Obi Wan Kenobi to help her.
R2-D2 is very
to get someone to help Leia, so he keeps trying to play the hologram.
The Saint of the Pyre
is the herald for Equality. This is because when he died he was looking straight at Equality, like he was almost trying to put the unspeakable word in his mind. Because of that moment Equality became curious about the unspeakable word.
The Saint of the Pyre was very
. Since he died smiling, that inspired Equality to want to find out what the unspeakable word was and why it made you feel so amazing that you could die smiling.
are the threshold guardians because when Obi Wan and Luke are trying to enter Mos Eisley Space Port, the Storm Troopers try to stop them. The Storm troopers ask for Luke's identification, but they are easily tricked by Obi Wan using the force, making them let Luke and Obi Wan pass into the city.
[Storm troopers are easily fooled by the force]
Let me see your identification."
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
[with a small wave of his hand] "You don't need to see his identification."
We don't need to see his identification."
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
"These aren't the droids you're looking for."
These aren't the droids we're looking for."
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
He can go about his business."
"You can go about your business.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Move along."
"Move along... move along."
is the threshold guardian for Equality because when International 4-8188 and Equality found the grate, it put up a fight. Equality tried and tried to pry it up but it wouldn't budge so he and international had to scrape all the dirt around it away to get it open.
Luke's allies are
Obi Wan Kenobi
Chew Bacca, Princess Leia
. Hans Solo and Obi Wan help Luke rescue Leia. Obi Wan teaches Luke how to use the force. R2-D2, Chewie and C-3PO rescue Luke Hans and Leia when they get stuck in the garbage crusher. Leia helps organize the attack on the Death Star, and Hans and the rebels help Luke destroy the Death Star.
One who's loyalty is questionable at times
is the shape shifter because he can't always be trusted. In the beginning of the movie it looked like Hans is really sketchy and is going to rip them of when he is bargaining with them trying to settle on a price for his ship. Also throughout the movie Hans messes up the mission, almost like he is trying to get their mission to fail. Also Hans doesn't believe in the force, and Obi Wan is always telling Luke to the force. Hans thinks its stupid.
[Hans can't always be trusted]
[Han answers the intercom after comandeering an attack station]
[sounding official] Uh, everything's under control. Situation normal.
Han Solo: [
getting nervous] Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh... everything's
perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thnk you. How are you?
Voice: We're sending a squad up.
Uh, uh... negative, negative. We had a reactor leak here now. Give us a few minutes to lock it down. Large leak, very dangerous.
Who is this? What's your operating number?
[Han shoots the intercom]
[muttering] Boring conversation anyway. LUKE, WE'RE GONNA HAVE COMPANY!
[Hans doesn't believe in the force.
You don't believe in the Force, do you?
Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen *anything* to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. 'Cause no mystical energy field controls *my* destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.
Equality's allies are the
Golden One, International 4-8818
, and anyone else he plans to build his new city with.
[The Golden One and International are loyal] The Golden One has been loyal to Equality the entire book, she even followed him when he ran away from the city. International kept his word with Equality, he never told about the grate.
is the Goddess because throughout the movie she helps Luke and encourages him. She also helps organize the mission to go destroy the Death Star.
The Golden One
is the goddess because she stayed by Equality's side the entire time, even when he ran away from the city she followed him and was willing to abandon her life in the city to be with Equality. Also, the goddess is normally the love interest which she is.
[describing the Golden One]
"Their body was straight and thin as a blade of iron. Their eyes were dark and hard and glowing.Their hair was golden as the sun;"
[Equality thinks that the Golden One is special, she is different from everyone else.]
"Yet we call them the Golden One, for they are not like the others. The Golden One are not like the others"
Luke's Enemy is Darth Vader. Darth Vader uses the dark side of the force and is controlling the galaxy with the Galactic Empire
Equality's enemy is the Council of Scholars and the great "We".
The Council of Scholars hate Equalities lightbulb invention and try to destroy it and sentence Equality to death. The council is cruel, unforgiving, and not open minded.
[The council of scholars is cruel]
[after Equality shows council of scholars his invention] "You shall be burned at the stake,"
