Storyboard Text

  • GRRR!!!!
  • I've appointed these two men to build a maze.
  • One upon a time, there lived a Minotaur, a ferocious creature that was half man and half bull, on the the island of Crete. This bull loved to eat nothing but humans. One night, this bull wanted a midnight snack, so he headed for the palace to find himself a royal treat.
  • Through all three of them in! We don't need the other two any more.
  • It searched up and down and round and round, but at last he ate a soldier. King Minos saw it take place and knew he had to do something immediately.
  • The king knew that to die that way would be a horrible death, and he wanted his enemies to have to face that kind of death, So, instead of killing the Minotaur, he ordered for a labyrinth to be built, a maze of passages that is so complex that it would be virtually impossible for anyone to ever find a way out. Then he found to men that would build him this labyrinth, Daedalus and, his son, Icarus.
  • I'm a goner.
  • He's a goner.
  • Daedalus and Icarus built the labyrinth for the king and the king sent the Minotaur in. The king also ordered that Daedalus and Icarus also be sent in, because he didn't need them anymore. The king didn't really think his plan through. Since Daedalus and Icarus built the labyrinth, they knew how to get out. So, they escaped and hid on the shaded beach, which was very well hidden from the city.
  •  They knew they couldn't hide forever, so they stated to think of ways to escape the island. They saw all the seagull feathers and decided to build wings out of them. Daedalus started observing how the seagulls fly Using wax to hold the wings together, they were able to make light weight wings. So, the next morning, they strapped on there wings and got ready to take off. 
  • However, before they left, Daedalus told Icarus not to fly too close to the sun, or the wax, holding the feathers together, would melt and he would plummet into the sea. Icarus nodded quickly, but he really wasn't paying any attention. So, they took off and Icarus flew too high because he was having so much fun. The wax on his wings began to melt and he fell into the sea. His father then named this sea the Icarian Sea
