Storyboard Text

  • The Green Knight comes to King Arthur's court with a challenge. He will allow one man to swing his sword at him, and in a year, he will swing his sword at that man.
  • Sir Gawain decides to take the challenge. He takes off the Green Knights head. But the Green Knight picks it up and rides away.
  • Sir Gawain sets out to find the Green Knight one year later and comes across a castle. The lord says that he can stay there, if he gives back to him what he gained throughout the day.
  • The lords wife tries to make advances on him. He denies her, but they exchange gifts. She gives him a sash that makes its wearer invulnerable to harm.
  • He meets the knight, and allows the Green Knight the swing at him. Sir Gawain doesn't die, but the Green Knight reveals that he was the lord of the castle.
  • The Green Knight forgives him for taking the sash, and they both go back to the castle to have a new years feast.
