Storyboard Text

  • Beowulf had finally rid of the terrible Grendel, but his Mother had come for revenge and "she had pounced and taken one of the retainers in a tight hold" and taken their trophy to her cave (1545).
  • Beowulf was determined to destory Grendel's Mother, so he prepared for battle, and Unferth had granted him "a hilted weapon, a rare and ancient sword" so that he would be prepared to fight and emerge victorious against this gruesome beast (1458).
  • Beowulf was ready for his deathly fight, and armed himself with his mighty weapon. The great warrior is confident and ready to "soon meet with the menace underwater" (1445).
  • But, Beowulf's confidence had failed to help him as Grendel's Mother "lunged and clutched and managed to catch him in her brutal grip", but his mighty sword "had spared her and failed the man in need", leaving Beowulf helpless for the first time (1501-1525).
  • Beowulf notices an "ideal weapon, one that any warrior would envy" in her cave, and uses Grendel's Mother's sword that was "so huge and heavy of itself only [he] can wield it in battle" to attack Grendel's Mother with more power than ever (1559-1561).
  • Having saved Beowulf from a terrible defeat,his mighty weapon is used to "cut the corpse's head off", but only to his dismay, the sword "wilts into gory icicles" and he can no longer use it (1590-1606). But Beowulf had been saved, and had defeated the gruesome beast. "He is the true lord" (1611).
