Storyboard Text

  • Gaea
  • Uranus
  • Tartarus
  • Cronus
  • This was Chaos, which was disorganized, wide open space. It was surrounded by water that Oceanus ruled, and a goddess named Eurynome had territory there. Her wish was to make Chaos organized.
  • I can protect Zeus by making Cronus swallow a rock instead!
  • Hmmm... I wonder which child this is!
  • In order to make Chaos organized, Eurynome danced on the waves of Oceanus. As a result, Gaea, Mother Earth, Uranus, the God of the Sky and Heavens, and Tartarus, the God of the region below Earth (the sunless region) were created.
  • Rhea put the poison inside the tea that she is giving Cronus.
  • Here is your tea, dear!
  • Thank you, Rhea!
  • Zeus (Had Power of Lightning)
  • Gaea and Uranus got married and had twelve children. Their children were a different race known as the Titans, which were giants. There was one Titan, however, that was different from the rest. His name was Cronus, and he was particularly clever.
  • Hera (Wife of Zeus and could curse/bless marriages)
  • Hestia (Goddess of Hearth)
  • Demeter (God of Agriculture/Farming)
  • Poseidon (God of Water)
  • Hades (God of Underworld)
  • As time passed by, Cronus grew up and married Rhea. Gaea and Uranus told Cronus that one day, his son would overpower him, so each time a child of his was born, he swallowed it. Rhea grew angry with this, so one day she decided to trick Cronus by making him swallow a rock instead of Zeus, her child. That way, Zeus would be able to grow up safely in Crete.
  • Eventually, Zeus came home older, and started fighting Cronus, who had no clue that his son was standing in front of him. Zeus needed help with killing Cronus, so Rhea helped him by giving Cronus a potion that would make him throw up all of Zeus's five siblings: Hestia, Demeter, Hera, Hades, and Poseidon.
  • Together, the siblings were able to kill Cronus and send him to Tartarus (the Dark World). By prevailing over his siblings, the Titans, and his father, Zeus was able to organize the universe as he wished. He created Mount Olympus, which was a mountain for the Gods and Goddesses to live in. Everybody else was left to defend themselves below it.
