Jack the Giant Killer

Synopsis: The terrible and trecherous Pendragon plans to gain the throne of Cornwall by getting the king to abdicate and to marry his lovely daughter. To help him he has his dreadful witches in his castle and his almost unstoppable sorcery. A giant under his control abducts the princess, but on the way home with her the giant meets farming lad Jack who slays him. This is only the beginning. Be assured Pendragon and his evil magic are far from done.

Get him!

Repair the bridge, men!

Axes and poles!

Guards, lend a hand!

We can't let him

out of our sight!

It's been years

since giants were banished.

Why would they return now?


Come on, Jonathan, Tom.

It's a beautiful day.

OK, Tom. Come on, back.

Back, back.

Come on, Tom.

Come on.

What's the matter

with you two this morning?

We have to get that feed to town

whether you like it or not.

Now come on.

No more nonsense. Back.

What's going on

around here?

Well done, Cormoran.

Leaving so soon, Princess?

Why, your voyage

has just begun.

No, no, no!

Let me go, please! Help!

Who's to hear you, Princess?

Now quiet!

The master has planned...

a nice long voyage for you,

in honor of your birthday!




Look out!


Cormoran, after them!

Head them off!

Bring them back!

Head them off!

Quick, the loft!

Look out! Run!

Are you all right?

You've done it.

You killed him.

It was nothing.

I kill a giant every morning

before breakfast.

Starts my day right.

I think you'd better

put this on.

You, farmer.

Have you seen the princess?

Your Majesty.

Kneel, girl. It's the king.

The princess, Your Majesty?

Elaine. Young man...

be good enough to come down

from there with my daughter.

Oh, l... I'm sorry, Princess.

I didn't know.

Well, young man?

We mustrt keep

the king waiting.



The Lord has been merciful.

Oh, father,

this is the young man...

who so bravely rescued me

from the giant.

Rise, my boy.

Jack, Jack.

Oh, Jack.

You're safe.

When I saw

that horrible monster...

Mother, this is the king.

Your Majesty.

Rise, madame.

Forgive me. I was so thankful

to see my son alive.

I'm so thankful

to see my daughter alive.

Oh, poor child. I have some

hot porridge on the fire.
