Special Interest: Osher The Myth and Magic of Star Wars

Friday, June 7, 2019

Star Wars premiered nearly half a century ago to become a cinematic and cultural phenomenon. Hundreds of millions of people the world over, young and old, have seen episodes of this motion picture series, and have become eager consumers of its merchandise from action figures to lunch boxes. Many fans, however, are unaware of the powerful mythological themes animating the Star Wars narrative, especially those surveyed in Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces. We’ll embark on our own hero’s journey through Campbell’s work, and with the aid of excerpts from Star Wars, learn how and why this saga has had such a hold on our imaginations.
