Transcript of The Hero's Journey in Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone

and the Sorcerer's Stone The Hero's Journey In Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry, an orphan, lived with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their repulsive son, Dudley. Just before his eleventh birthday, an owl tried to deliver mysterious letters to Harry. His uncle, Mr. Dursley, was angry and tried to keep the letters away from Harry. However, the letters kept arriving at such a fast speed, on the evening before Harry's eleventh birthday, his uncle took the whole family to a deserted lighthouse to escape from the mails. The Call to Adventure Supernatural Aid Professor Snape, the potions master at hogwarts, was a challenge because he kept being cruel to Harry. Also, Harry and his friends thought that Snape was trying to steal the Sorcerer's stone, and that belief kept them from discovering the real betrayer of Hogwarts. Road of Trials Conclusion Introduction The Ultimate Boon Harry mastered both of the worlds: Muggles, and the wizarding world.

Muggle world: The Dursley was afraid of Harry due to his magical abilities. Master of Two Worlds Thank You For Watching! Harry Potter's journey was very similar to the Hero's Journey since Harry faced challenges, had enemies,
and went into a world that was new to him. After Harry returned to the mortal world, he wasn't happy. However, he would be waiting until going back to the wizard world where, he said, was his real home. By: Michelle AlQuraishi

Harry defeated Voldemort. Hagrid helped Harry to begin his journey and introduced him to the magical world. Rewards at the end of the journey were: Harry was known as the "Boy Who Lived," because he was the only person who has survived from Voldemort's killing curses. That was why most wizards and witches believed that he would become great wizard one day. Apotheosis Hagrid showed up on Harry's birthday to deliver the letter, and also to deliver the news that Harry was a wizard and was admitted to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This information was actually in the letters that Harry has never received. Hagrid supported Harry emotionally and intellectually. He also acted as a guide by helping Harry during his threshold into the magical world and told him about the relationship between him and Voldemort. Hagrid (unwillingly) provided useful information and clues to Harry, Ron, and Hermoine for figuring out the Sorcerer's Stone. Troll, this challenge attacked Harry's main weakness, inexperience with magic. It was only through teamwork that the troll was defeated and Hermoine was saved. Professor Quirrel tried to kill Harry by cursing his broom during a Quidditch game. He Saved the Sorcerer's Stone. Dumbledore rewarded them by giving Gryffindor house tons of points. They won the house cup for Gryffindor, and even passed all of their exams. Magical World: Defeating Voldemort once again, made his peers start to give him more respects at Hogwarts. 1. file://localhost/Users/michellealquraishi/Desktop/English/Harry

This was a challenge for Harry because he was seeing his parents for the first time and started to realize how much he wished they were still alive. Harry faced many challenges in his first year at Hogwarts, but many of them were little challenges, which were pieces making the main challenge 8.file:///Users/michellealquraishi/Desktop/English/Harry%20Potter%20Pictures!/Mirror_of_erised.jpg 5.file://localhost/Users/michellealquraishi/Desktop/English/Harry%20Potter%20Pictures!/Fluffy-rtbqaz-150x150.jpg Harry's main challenge was keeping the Sorcerer's Stone out of Voldemort's hands. Harry and his friends had to overcome a series of little challenges in order to reach the Stone. Devil's Snare, a plant that tried to strangle whatever it touched Room with full of flying keys, and only one matching the door Giant wizard's chess board Also, each of these little challenges was played by one of the hero's strengths.
For example: Hermoine's knowledge helped them passing the Devil's Snare. Harry's ability on a broomstick allowed him to catch the key. Ron's experience with wizard's chess got them through the giant wizard's chess game. Steps that I have chosen: The Call to Adventure
