  « Image example

The story of the film is presented through the protagonist. The protagonists of film and of fairytale are usually almost as easily identified.

Luke Skywalker of the Star Wars is like Cinderella of the folktale. We are intrigued by the change of Luke and Cinderella. Luke and Cinderella are both driven to a so-called "hero's journey".

The antagonist opposes the protagonist's goals. He doesn't necessarily need to be a "bad guy". The antagonist opposes openly the protagonist's change.
