Storyboard Description

Realizing that he was Hamlet’s intended victim, the king sends Hamlet to England. He writes a letter to the King of England, telling him to have Hamlet killed as soon as he arrives. Hearing of Fortinbras’s advance on Poland, Hamlet sees Fortinbras as courageous and himself as cowardly. He again vows to avenge his father’s death. Ophelia visits the queen and appears to have gone insane. When Laertes returns to Denmark, he is grief-stricken to see his sister’s pitiable condition. After Hamlet’s ship is attacked by pirates, he’s brought back to Denmark in exchange for a reward. Now the king and Laertes plan to kill Hamlet in a duel. As they talk, the queen enters to tell them that Ophelia has drowned.
