We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling

 

We contend that inventive storytelling within media franchises, such as Star Wars and Marvel, becomes hampered by the commercial needs of business on one side and the fans’ desires for continuity and references—in the forms of callbacks—on the other. We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling will look for moments when content producers were able to skillfully negotiate (or avoid all together) these dual pressures or, conversely, when these pressures created insurmountable obstacles to storytelling.

Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,

The fool's journey has been characterized as one that opens the seeker to the "infinite but self-disclosing mystery" of the soul (Wolf-Salin 2005). Current social discourse propelling discussions and enactments of gender fluidity and feminine empowerment coupled with the ubiquitous, problematic, and potential-filled documentation of the self on social media forms a situation where the most private of enterprises (interior discovery) is rendered a perpetual public act, surveilled, critiqued, and disseminated potentially by the entire world.
