Harry Potter – Hero’s Journey
The Mundane World
Harry begins “The Sorcerer’s Stone” in the Muggle World, living with his uncle, aunt, and cousin. He is hated by them and they treat him badly all the time.
The Call To Adventure
When letters start arriving for Harry’s address below the stairs, his call to adventure has begun. The letters are a very clear call, almost as good as a phone call or a formal request to join the adventure.
Crossing The Threshold
When it comes time to leave the mundane world, Harry is asked to take a test of faith. Does he really believe in the magic world? This test takes place on platform nine and three quarters where he must take one step to leave the mundane world – crossing the threshold from one world to the next.
The Path of Trials
Once in the magical world of Hogwarts, Harry encounters a series of challenges that test his character and his ability. His choice of friends is important too as the intentions of those around are not always clear. He may not have made it through his first year at Hogwarts without the help of his friends.
Master of Two Worlds
By successfully completing his first year in the magical world of Hogwarts Harry changes as a person. He becomes a hero to those around him at school and is better equipped to handle the situation he finds himself in the mundane (Muggle) world.
