Storyboard Text

  • I need an important place to be buried. I'm kind of a big deal. And my queen? You can be buried there too but below me.
  • The Pharaoh chose a place in the desert that seemed like the perfect spot for his pyramid. It was flat and dry. Great for turning bodies into mummies.
  • Yesterday, I broke my foot when some stones fell on it. But they said I still had to come today and work. My foot hurts!
  • Yes! I need a giant pyramid! For me and me only...well...and my queen. But she doesn't matter.
  • Pharaoh, my men are tired. This work is killing them. Do you really need a big pyramid to live in after you die?
  • This. Is. Amazing. Better than I could have hoped. And only a few hundred slaves died building it.
  • I just saw my burial chamber. It's so small! Urgh!
  • OK, so this isn't what I was expecting. I thought I would still be me...not this flying, um, camel? Where's my fancy pyramid?
