The Hero’s Journey
Star Wars: Zoom-In on Characters, Themes, Symbols... etc.
Zoom-in on Luke's pyshical appearance, one aspect of character analysis.
- Youthful 80's haircut. Note the middle part. :)
- Blue light saber, held in ready Jedi warrior position; brightest point in image,
symbolizing his growing spiritual core
- Simple Jedi Knight robe; symbolizing that he is still in training
Characters are multi-dimensional. Their appearance is one way to analyze them (as we've done with Luke), but there are lots of other "lenses" to look through to deepen your understanding of a character.
In the next few pages, you'll find a bunch of questions to help you develop your own point of view about your character.
- What does the expression on his face tell you?
- Cool belt
- Simple boots; do not signify wealth
