O Χάρι Πότερ, Το Star Wars, Το Matrix και Το Star Trek Είναι Η Ίδια Ταινία

Μια πολύ ενδιαφέρουσα θεωρία:

Once upon a time,

Luke | Kirk | Neo | Harry

was living a miserable life. Feeling disconnected from his friends and family, he dreams about how his life could be different. One day, he is greeted by

Obi Wan | Captain Pike | Trinity | Hagrid

and told that his life is not what it seems, and that due to some circumstances surrounding his

birth | birth | birth | infancy

he was meant for something greater. Deciding to leave with

him | him | her | him,

Luke | Kirk | Neo | Harry

is taken to

Mos Eisley | Starfleet Academy | the real world | Hogwarts

where he meets lots of new, fascinating people.

Διάβασε το υπόλοιπο εδώ. Όλες αυτές οι ταινίες είναι στην ουσία παραλλαγές του “μονομύθου“, που επινόησε ο Τζόζεφ Κάμπελ το 1949 (πήρε τη λέξη απ’ το Finnegan’s Wake), δηλαδή της ιστορίας του “ταξιδιού του ήρωα”:

A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.

Οι ιστορίες του Βούδα, του Ιησού και του Μωυσή είναι, επίσης, μονομύθοι.
