Storyboard Text

  • King Minos built a big palace for his wife honoring Zeus. But Poseidon grew jealous and sent a bull to be sacrificed to him.
  • But King Minos's wife grew fond of the bull so the king spared it. Poseidon cursed the queen to have a minotaur as a child.
  • The minotaur only eats human flesh. King Minos builds a labyrinth to house the minotaur. Every 9 years, Athens sends kids to be eaten.
  • Meanwhile, in Athens, King Aegeus's (King of Athens) son demands to go kill the minotaur. He sets out on a ship for Crete with the other victims.
  • Theseus arrives on Crete and King Minos's daughter, Ariadne, falls in love with him. She gives him a ball of string at night and he goes into the labyrinth. He kills the Minotaur.
  • He leaves Crete with the other prisoners, but King Minos believes he is dead and kills himself.
