Storyboard Text

  • A dragon guarding a hoard of treasure for the past three hundred years awakes to see a slave on the run from a hard-handed master has taken a goblet. Meaning no harm by his theft, the slave flees in a panic.
  • I mean no harm by my theft! The goblet is not worth the terror!
  • I commission a mighty shield to withstand breath of flame! I shall assemble 11 fine warriors to assist me.
  • The dragon goes on a rampage, scorching the Earth as it hunts the thief. Soon, Beowulf's own throne-hall becomes the target of the dragon's fiery breathe. He assembles what he needs to stop the dragon.
  • Yes, my Lord!
  • I have had many proud days in the service of Higlac. I vow to fight the dragon, if only it will abandon its barrow and face me on open ground.
  • Beowulf presses the thief to take him to the barrow. Once there, he has a premonition of his own death and proceeds to recount his youth to his men.
  • I chide the others as they break their oaths of loyalty to you my Lord!
  • As Beowulf battles the dragon, only Wiglaf feels enough loyalty to come to the aid of his king
  • As they run in terror, they have betrayed the Geates.
  • The dragon lays a bit on Beowulf's neck. Wiglaf rushes to his aid, stabbing the dragon in the belly. Beowulf pulls a knife from his belt and stabs it deep into the dragon's flank. The blow was fatal.
  • Yes, my Lord.
  • This bite is poisonous, I am fleeting. You, Wiglaf, must now look after the Geates. Have your troops build a barrow called "Beowulf's Barrow".
  • Wiglaf rebukes the warriors bitterly, and how their lack of loyalty will lead to the invasion of other clans. He commands them to build the memorial for Beowulf.
  • All of Beowulf's generosity has been wasted on you! Go now and build a pyre high and decked with armor!
  • Yes, sir! Our cowardice has lost the life of a great ruler.
