Storyboard Text

  • Scene 1
  • Will I ever have a son?
  • No, but you will have a grandson. Who will be destined to kill you.
  • Scene 2
  • Scene 3
  • King Acrisius asks the Oracle if he will ever have a son.
  • Scene 4
  • To earn your deserved recognition as a hero, you must kill Medusa, the Gorgon
  • Yes, of course Mother and Father.
  • King Acrisius decided to trap his daughter in an underwater prison so that she couldn't have a child. Acrisius did not kill his daughter because he feared the punishment the gods would wreak upon him. Although Acrisius's plan did not work because Zeus and Danae had a child together named Perseus.  
  • Scene 5
  • When King Acrisius found out his daughter had a child he decided to send them both away in a crate. He planned to leave them to floating in the ocean. But, Zeus told Poseidon, the god of the sea, to calm the waters so they were not in danger. So, the chest floated safely to the island of Seriphus.
  • Scene 6
  • No! How could this happen to our sister? Who did such a thing?
  • The King of the island was Polydectes who fell in love with Danae, Perseus's Mother, and eventually married her. Since they were married Perseus got a great education. Polydectes told Perseus he should kill Medusa, a Gorgon, so that he could earn the recognition of a hero. Perseus agreed but knew he would need some items for his quest.
  • After he received his winged sandals, magic bag, and the Helmet of Hades, he went off on his quest to kill Medusa. He flew to the Gorgon's home, but he was not faced with much trouble, for the Gorgons were asleep. He used his sheild to see the reflection of Medusa and then swiftly cut off her head and placed it in the bag.
  • When Medusa's sisters awoke they were furious, but Perseus was not worried because he was invisible.
