Storyboard Text

  • After Higlac, the king of the Geats, had died, his son Herdred ruled until he was killed in battle with the Swedes. Now Beowulf took the throne, that he had once refused, 50 years after he had defeated Grendal and his mother. He now must face another problem.
  • A man happened to find a path that led to a large stone tower in which the Dragon lived, protecting his ancient treasure. The greedy man decided to steal a gem-studded cup.
  • The dragon was furious about the stolen cup and unleased its anger. He swept through the darkness and attacked the countryside and burning the buildings.
  • Beowulf decides to fight the dragon along with some companions. He tells the men about his other battles and how he still seeks fame. He says that if anyone can defeat the dragon, it will be him.
  • Beowulf still brave, still strong with his shield at his side, strode confidently toward the dragon. There was a fierce fight between the two. The Geats' ring-giver knew fate was against him as his sword shattered and his shield melted.
  • Beowulf's men, who are scared to fight the dragon, flee to the forest when he needs them. Edgetho's Famous son knew death was close. However, one man stayed behind, remembering what loyalty truly is.
