Originally an influential memo Vogler wrote for Walt Disney Animation executives regarding The Lion King, The Writer's Journey details a twelve-stage, myth-inspired method that has galvanized Hollywood's treatment of cinematic storytelling. A format that once seldom deviated beyond a traditional three-act blueprint, Vogler's comprehensive theory of story structure and character development has met with universal acclaim, and is detailed herein using examples from myths, fairy tales, and classic movies. This book has changed the face of screenwriting worldwide over the last 25 years, and continues to do so. Vogler's experience as an influencer of stories is vast, with a Hollywood development career spanning from Heaven's Gate to Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler and including titles like The Lion King and Fight Club. Many screenwriters and novelists attribute their success to following his principles.

Vogler's language and concepts are well-known around the world, with The Writer's Journey published in over a dozen languages and nearly half a million copies in print. It is widely used as a textbook in high school and college creative-writing classes. Concepts in the book haven proven useful in other walks of life, particularly to non-writers.
