Storyboard Text

  • This is the story of Persephone and her mother, Demeter.  Persephone is a young teenager who loved being outside, but was not very smart.  She was decalred off limits to the Gods by her mom. 
  • Because of this rule, Hades secretly fell in love with Persephone, which effected his work, so he went to go talk to her father, Zeus. This was a hard task because he was not welcome at Mt. Olympus.
  • Luckily for Hades, Zeus was is a good mood and agreed to help him.  He recommended for Hades to kidnap Persephone and steal her to the underworld, where she would be forced to be his bride.  So, later that week Zeus planned to help distract Persephone so he can kidnap her without anyone knowing.
  • The next week, Zeus planted flowers to make Persephone wander far from the nymphs that were babysitting her. 
  • Suddenly, Hades broke through the ground in his chariot, and stole Persephone.  The only two people who saw were Titan Helios, but he didn't care, and Titan Hecate only heard Persephone's screams and didn't see anything.
