Storyboard Text

  • Horatio and Hamlet visit a graveyard
  • Who is that, M'lord?
  • It's my old jester friend. Real shame about what happened. He was pretty comedic at times
  • But during Ophelia's funeral, this happens...
  • I HATE YOU SO MUCH!!! My family's gone because of you!
  • Laertes, please! This is no way to behave at a funeral!
  • And on the day of the duel between Laertes and Hamlet, Gertrude drinks a cup of POISONED wine and dies!
  • Glug, glug, glug. Oh, it's lethal. Darn! (dies)
  • NOOOO!!!
  • Hamlet and Laertes both stab each other with a poisined sword. Laertes is the first to go, but before he does...
  • I have a confession to make. Claudius set this whole thing up to kill you. (dies)
  • Oh, no.
  • Hamlet believed Laertes. It was pretty obvious about what he did next.
  • YOOWWW!!! Oh, how I've wasted my life! (dies)
  • The end...?
  • Finally, Hamlet is killed by the poison. But before he takes off...
  • Got it.
  • Give the crown to Fortinbras and hold a funeral for me.
