In several ways, Star Wars exemplifies the monomyth known as "the Hero's Journey" especially in terms of archetypes, phases, character transitions, and symbolic elements fundamental to the framework. These insights can cross over meaningfully into our own self-searching and psychological development. Yet, it is asked: How might Star Wars actually subvert or challenge the Hero's Journey schema?
