Having seen Wall-E, we wil do an extensive analysis based on the Hero’s Journey. The movie poses a challenge, though, as it features two heroes, Wall-E and Eve. Both of these characters have a distinct character arc; that is, they change from the beginning of the movie towards the end. They are transformed by their circumstances as they go through Act II.
It could be argued that every featured character in Wall-E is transformed: the two humans, the captain of the Axiom, Mo, the crazy robots… They all change. Can you support that claim? You will do two things tonight:
- A complete analysis of the movie based on the Hero’s Journey. Use what you read on The Writer’s Journey. Identify all elements: Ordinary World, special world, plot points 1 and 2, allies, thresholds, threshold guardians, etc…
- Describe the character arc of all featured characters.
