What is backstory in storytelling?

#screenwriting #filmmaking #writing #screenplay

Backstory is the loss of the state of perfection up until the moment the hero is ready to depart to return to it again.

For example, Luke Skywalker's backstory in Star Wars (1977) is everything that's happened to him, his father and his family etc before we meet him in his Ordinary World.

This is answered in more detail within the 2000+ stage Hero's Journey/Transformation/New World, which you can purchase from http://www.clickok.co.uk/index4.html
