The Mythology of Hakuna Matata : A qualitative and comparative analysis of the manifestation of the monomyth in The Lion King (English)
Abstract [en]

The focus of this study is to investigate the applicability of Joseph Campbell’s theory of the monomyth from his theoretical work The Hero with a Thousand Faces on the animated Disney movie The Lion King. This has been done by applying a narrative as well as a semiotic analysis of the plot in The Lion King and subsequently conducting a comparative analysis between the movie and Campbell’s theory. The overarching aim of this study is to establish a tradition that examines the correlation between a movie’s adherence to Campbells theory and it’s acclaims. As such, this study does not make any definitive statements on the universal applicability of Campbell’s theory, but finds that the narrative development of the Lion King conforms well to the notion of the monomyth proposed by Campbell and concludes that further research is necessary to strengthen it’s hypothesis.
