7 Basic Plots - #4 "Voyage & Return"

Sep 22, 2022

“Voyage and Return” clocks in as the FOURTH plot of Christopher Booker’s The 7 Basic Plots book, bringing you a few all-time classic stories.

While Booker walks us through the commonalities in Alice and Wonderland, Wizard of Oz & Peter Pan, Mikey and Molly applied the plot to some PIXAR favorites—Toy Story and UP! 

The idea of embarking on our own ambling journey is one of the most relatable plot shapes yet. Some of the best presentations are ones that share their respective “Voyage”....and “Returns”. (Get it??)

Tune in for more storytelling breakdowns, what we can learn from the “Thrilling Escape” & a call-back to why PIXAR is always making us cry.
