Storyboard Description

According to Thorin’s story, his grandfather, Thror, was driven out of the Northern area and went to the Mountain with their wealth and tools. Thorin’s ancestor, Thrain the Old, had discovered the Mountain and it was mined, tunneled, made larger halls, and greater workshops inside it. Thorin also believed that his ancestors found gold and other jewels as well. Thror grew rich as well as famous and he was the King under the Mountain. They built a town called Dale, but the amount of riches inside it lured dragons to come to their area. They stole gold and jewels, which they protected for their entire life unless they were killed. Smaug, a most specially greedy, strong, and wicked dragon, had destroyed most of the village of Dale and its warriors. He stole every valuable thing from the village and piled it up, using it as a bed. Every night, he would go back to Dale to carry away people, especially maidens, to eat until Dale was ruined and there was nothing left, including people. Ever since the destruction of Dale, Smaug protected his gold and valuable things.
