Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning, there was nothing called Chaos. Gaia (the Earth), Eros (love), the Abyss (the part of the underworld), and Erebus (unknown place where death dwells) emerged out of the void. Gaia gave birth to Uranus (the Sky).
  • Gaia and Uranus united producing twelve Titans. The six male Titans were: Coeus, Crius, Cronus, Hyperion, Iapetus, and Oceanus. The six female Titans were: Mnemosyne, Phoebe, Rhea, Theia, Themis, and Tethys. Both Gaia and Uranus decided no more Titans would be born after these twelve.
  • Gaia and Uranus birthed three Cyclopes as well. Each Cyclops has fifty heads and one-hundred arms. Uranus was displeased with his three children, and he sent them back to Gaia' s womb. Because Gaia was upset with Uranus, she planned revenge on him with the help from the Titans. Cronus made a sickle and cut off his father's genitals.
  • Cronus threw genitals in the ocean which created Aphrodite. She is the goddess of love, beauty, and sexuality. Cronus ate all the children that Rhea birthed except Zeus. This is because Rhea hid the baby and wrapped a rock in the baby blanket instead of Zeus.
  • Rhea smuggled baby Zeus to the island of Crete, so he could be raised by nymphs.
  • Cronus threw up Rhea's other children and the stone after Zeus drugged his drink. His father challenged him to war for the kingship of the gods. Zeus along with his Olympians brothers and sisters defeated the Titans. The Titans were imprisoned in the Abyss.
