Storyboard Text

  • Your daughter will have a son that will kill you. Unless you want this to happen, you must kill her.
  • No the gods will punish me if I kill her! I'll lock her away for forever instead...
  • Who is his father?
  • Zeus
  • What the...
  • Help!!!
  • The king of Argos, Acrisius, had a beautiful daughter named Danaë. However, he wanted a son, so he visited an oracle to see if he would have one. The oracle told him that his daughter would have a son who would kill him. So Acrisius locked Danaë in an underground bronze house to prevent this from happening.
  • Good luck Perseus!
  • I will bring you back Medusa's head!
  • Danaë sat there day after day, until one day Zeus came to her. She bore his child and kept him a secret from her father. Her sons name was Perseus. However, Acrisius discovered him one day and in fear he put the two in a chest and cast it into the sea, which was a way of certain death.
  • I am Hermes! I'm here to help you.
  • Who are you?
  • Danaë and Perseus floated in the chest, until one day they made land. They were discovered bt a fisherman named Dictys. He took the two to his home, and him and his wife cared for Danaë and Perseus. They stayed there for many years. Trouble found them again when Polydectes, the ruler of the island, fell in love with Danaë. He wanted her but not Perseus, so he plotted a way to get rid of him.
  • Ahhhhhhh where's the eye!?
  • Polydectes announced he was about to be married and he called his friends, including Perseus, together for a celebration. Everyone but Perseus brought a gift for the bride-to-be. Perseus was mortified, so he declared in front of everyone that he would go off and kill Medusa and bring back her head as his gift. Medusa was a Gorgon, and anyone who looked at her was turned to stone instantly. No man unaided could kill her.
  • Perseus traveled to Delphi, but all the priestess would say was to bid him seek the land where men eat not Demeter's grain, but only acorns. Then he went to Dodona, where the talking oaks could only tell him that he was under the protection of the gods. As Perseus wandered on, he met Hermes, the guide and giver of good. Hermes told him that before he attacked Medusa he had to be properly equipped, and that what he needed was in the possession of the Gray Women.
  • The Gray Women were strange creatures. They had only one eye for the three, so they had to take turns with it. Hermes told Perseus this and then gave him a plan. Perseus would be taken there by Hermes, and would keep hidden until he saw one of the women take the eye out of her forehead to pass it on. At that moment, Perseus would seize the eye and refuse to give it back until they told him where to find the nymphs of the North.
