Storyboard Text

  • Elya Yelnats fell in love with Myra Menke...
  • He asked her to marry him, but so did Igor Barkov.. Myra's dad said to come back when she's 15
  • Marry me please? I love you!
  • Come back later!!
  • No marry me! I has fat pig!
  • Elya went to see Madame Zeroni. She gave him a pig, even though she thought Elya deserved better than empty-headed Myra...
  • She dumb, but have this piglet. Carry it up the mountain every day and sing it a song... Then, you must carry me up the mountain or you and all of your descendants will be forever cursed...
  • Every day, Elya carried the pig up the mountain and sang to it. And each day, the pig grew larger and Elya grew stronger. But even though Zeroni told him to carry it up on Myra's 15th birthday as well, he disobeyed her and had a bath instead...
  • But Myra had trouble deciding... the pigs weighed exactly the same!!
  • I choose Igor....I can't decide. I'll pick a number between 1 and 10. Igor? Elya?
  • Marry Igor. Keep my pig as a present...
  • 10!
  • Elya got on a boat to America to start a new life...
  • You must carry me up the mountain or you and your descendants will be forever cursed...
  • Then he thought of Madame Zeroni and the promise he made... and realised he was cursed!
