Storyboard Text

  • One day, a king died and his wife, Gertrude, married his brother, Claudius, a little after he died. Their son, Hamlet, was pretty mad that she married someone else, barely after his fatherś death. He finds her weak.
  • Dad dies... And you marry his brother? This is how you are dealing with grief mom?...
  • Hamlet's friends tell him that they saw a ghost that looks like his father. He then goes to check it out.
  • DAD?!?!
  • Well... sort of. I am a ghost. Claudius has killed me to take the thrown! I need your help to avenge me!
  • Okay, Ghost who looks like my dad! I have a plan!
  • My son.
  • The first step of Hamletś genius plan was to act insane. One may smile, and smile, and be a villain.
  • HI DAD!    
  • Good morning Hamlet! I have some breakfast waiting for you in the dining room.
  • Hamlet! What are you doing?!
  • Hellooooo! Though this be madness, yet there is method in't.
  • Hamlet then goes to his girlfriend, Ophelia, and acts insane.
  • Hamlet then gets to the next part of his plan. To form a play based on how Claudius killed King Hamlet. Seeing how he reacts, will prove Hamlet is right.
  • HAMLET! Stop this horrific play immediately!!!
  • And that was the story of a king dying by his brother and the wife marrying him!
  • After that, Claudius worries about Hamlet. And so he convinces everyone to send him off to England. He secretly tells the King of England to kill Hamlet when he arrives. This plan was interrupted when a group of pirates interfered with the ship and took Hamlet for ransom. Hamlet was then taken by his friend, Horatio. After that, Laertes asks why Claudius why he has not publicly punished Hamlet. They come up with a plan to convince Hamlet to fence Laertes because Hamlet is jealous of his skill. They will then put poison on the tip of the sword. They also poisoned Hamlet's drink. Queen Gertrude drinks it though, accidentally killing herself. Hamlet gets wounded in the fight, but quickly swaps the swords and wounds Laertes, and then he stabs Claudius, causing all three of them to meet their end.
