Storyboard Text

  • You must not have a son
  • You will be overthrown by your grandson
  • The king of Argos, Acrisius, was told by an oracle that his grandson would overthrow and kill him one day. He locked his only child, Danaë, away in a tower.
  • Kill Medusa
  • I have no gift
  •  Zeus, king of the gods, took a liking to her and they had a son named Perseus. The king didn't want to anger the gods so he sent Danaë and Perseus away in a box.
  • Give us the eye!
  • Only if you help me first!
  • The two were washed up near an island called Serifos, where a fisherman took them in.
  • The King, Polydectes, fell in love with Danae. Perseus didn't like the king and protected his mother from him. Polydectes came up with the plan for Perseus to kill Medusa, the only mortal gorgon.
  • Perseus came across three old women who knew where Medusa was. They shared one eye between them and he held it ransom for knowledge of how to defeat Medusa.
  • With knowledge and weapons Perseus used a shield to look at Medusa and kill her.
