This storyboard does not have a description.
King Minos captures Daedalus and his son Icarus because Daedalus is a talented inventor who could make the kings army stronger.
But Daedalus is sad with his life at the palace. He wants to get back to his home in Athens with his son.
I want to go home :(
I need to find a way out of here to get back to Athens. :(
Daedalus finally had an escape plan. He told King Minos that he needed feathers and wax for his new invention. But little did King Minos know that this was his plan. He went out to the roof and began to build.
Phew! Its super hot up here.
After Daedalus had built the wings, he brought them to Icarus. He was delighted. They both practiced flying in their wings for days until they were ready.
I'm so great at this!
Then, they finally escaped the palace. They flew over the oceans and seas but Daedalus told his son not to go to high or the wax would melt.
But Icarus didn't listen. He flew to high and close to the sun and his wax holding his wings together melted, leaving Icarus falling into the ocean with his father not able to see him fall.
