Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Well, this is slightly concerning.
  • Climax
  • Meet the Hadleys, George the father, Lydia the mother, and their kids, Peter and Wendy. They live in the future, where their entire house  is full of technology, it being used to make their lives easier. The most prominent piece of technology  would be the nursery, a hologram room  that location is controlled by the children's thoughts.
  • Falling Action
  • Please George, the kids seem really upset.
  • For a while, the children have been imagining a scarily realistic Veldt, everything from the heat of the plains to the lions and their hunger. This concerns their parents, especially since they've been hearing screams coming from the nursery every now and then.
  • Resolution
  • Ultimately, George grew so upset with the nursery, he decided to turn it off, alongside the rest of the house's technology. The children starting screaming and crying as a result, wanting him to turn it back on for one more minute. Lydia, seeing this, feels bad for the kids and wants George to turn it back on.
  • Literary Term - Foreshadowing
  • AHHHH!
  • George finally caves into the kids demands after Lydia persuaded him to do so. Right after that, the two parents hear the children scream from the nursery. They immediately rush over just to be locked in it by the kids, who lured them into a trap.
  • Fine, I'll turn it back on for one more minute.
  • In the end, George and Lydia were left to be eaten by the lions, the two children celebrating their success over a picnic in the Veldt.
  • AHHHH!
  • The Veldt shows foreshadowing when the parents occasionally hear familiar screams coming from the nursery. It turns out those screams were their own, as the kids have been plotting the murder of their parents for quite a while.
  • That sounds oddly familiar...
