Storyboard Text

  • Beowulf and the eleven warriors on their way to kill the dragon.
  • Beowulf hacks with his sword against the dragon’s thick scales, but his strength is clearly not what it once was.
  • As the flames billow, Beowulf’s companions run in terror. Only one, Wiglaf, feels enough loyalty to come to the aid of his king.
  • Beowulf strikes the dragon in the head with his great sword Naegling but he sword snaps and breaks.
  • The dragon lands a bite on Beowulf’s neck, and blood begins to flow. 
  • UGHH!!!
  • Wiglaf rushes to Beowulf’s aid, stabbing the dragon in the belly, and the dragon scorches Wiglaf’s hand.
  • In desperation Beowulf pulls a knife from his belt and stabs it deep into the dragon’s flank. The blow is fatal, and the writhing serpent withers.
  • He sends Wiglaf to inspect the dragon’s treasure and bring him a portion of it, saying that death will be easier if he sees the hoard that he has liberated.
  • He tells Wiglaf that he must now look after the Geats and order his troop to build him a barrow that people will call “Beowulf’s Barrow.” After giving Wiglaf the collar from his own neck, Beowulf dies.
  • He sends Wiglaf to inspect the dragon’s treasure and bring him a portion of it, saying that death will be easier if he sees the hoard that he has liberated.
