Jack the Giant Slayer

Synopsis: Sent to the market by his uncle to sell their horse and buy thatch for their roof, Jack meets the beautiful Princess Isabelle whom he rescues her from ruffians. He returns home only with a handful of beans given to him by a monk who claimed they were sacred but that does little to impress his uncle who tosses them away. In the night the Princess arrives having run off to keep from marrying Roderick who is clearly only interested in becoming king. Soon the beans take root with a giant stalk carrying away the princess and Jack's house. He soon sets off on an adventure with the king's guards to rescue the princess only to find that a mythical land filled with giants really exists.

"And to eat the last...

"... of Erik's kin."


... when you're back

from selling the horse...

... get working on the weeds out back.

They're about to swallow the house.

I'll get to it, Uncle.

- And, Jack?

- Yes, Uncle?

Don't get distracted.

Come on, don't look at me like that.

I wouldn't sell you,

but we haven't got much choice.

Horse and cart for sale.

Going for a price.

I'll be sad to see him go.

Horse and cart?


Ask not whence the thunder comes.

Ask not where the herds have gone...

... nor why the birds have ceased their song.

When coming home...

... don't take too long...

... for monsters roam in Albion.

Now let's turn that frown upside down.

Here comes King Erik...

- ... with his magic crown.

Hello, mates!

I'm Erik the Great.

Hello, Erik!

Would you like to hear...

- ... how I defeated the giants?


In Gantua we set our scene...

... where a stalk has grown...

... from a magic bean.

And from there, beyond the reach of men...

... a plague of giants did descend.

And what do we have over here?

Hello, pretty.

And what might your name be?

None of your business.

Very pretty.

- Where did you get that?


From my mother.

Now, please, let me be.

Come on, go after her.

Where do you think you're going?

- What's the matter? Not enjoying the show?

Hands off.

Hey. Hey, that's no way to treat a... Unh!

... lady.

To be honest,

you looked too drunk to do that.

What say we let the good lady go home...

... and I'll consider forgetting this.

We're sorry, sir.

We don't want any trouble.

Good. Because that's what

you're gonna get. Trouble.

Yeah. All three of you.

A whole...

... lot of trou...

There's something behind me,

isn't there?

What's your name?


Something wrong

with your knees, Jack?
