Storyboard Text

  • Grendel's mother, in a rage, comes and takes Hrothgar's trusted adviser, Aeschere, and her son's arm before being scared off by the warriors. 
  • You will pay for killing my son!
  • Hrothgar is devastated and summons Beowulf to kill Grendel's mother. He describes the horrible, swampy, magical place where her lair is. 
  • You have to save Aeschere and protect us all from her wrath again.
  • Unferth loans Beowulf the great sword Hrunting, which has never failed in any battle. He Beowulf is killed he plans to give his own sword to Unferth. 
  • Take this sword, it has never lost in battle!
  • Beowulf swims downward for nearly a day until he finally reaches the bottom. As he nears the lake floor, she senses his approach. 
  • I'm coming Aeschere!
  • She clutches him but his armor prevents her from crushing him. Beowulf swings at her with Hrunting, but it is unable to pierce his skin. He spots a massive sword on the wall that was made by giants.
  • Oh no! The sword broke! But what is that sword on the wall?
  • Beowulf takes the sword and swings it. It chops off her head. He spots Grendel's corpse in the corner  and slashes his head off too. He presents both of their heads to Hrothgar.
  • I should take both of their heads back to Hrothgar!
