The legend of Jack the Giant Killer was born over a thousand years ago in Cornwall, England near Land's End. There was a time when the Kingdom of Cornwall lived in fear and trembling of the Black Prince Pendragon - master of witches, giants and hobgoblins - who ravaged the land. But at long last Herla the Wizard drove Pendragon and his witches from the kingdom and exiled them beyond the reaches of the known world. Here on a misty isle, uncharted and unknown, Pendragon schemed and waited for the day when he could return to power in Cornwall. Then, after many years, the day came.
I scheme a thousand nights, put the princess in your very hands and you, imbecile, idiot, allow a mere farmer, a mere mortal to defy me!
We have failed, master, we have failed.
But only for a moment. I shall have the princess and the farmer shall die. By all the powers of darkness, he shall die!
Hail to Sir Jack! Jack the Giant Killer!
Hail to Sir Jack! Hail to Sir Jack!
I think my rescuer has acquired a new name.
[Jack studies the huge medal King Mark gave to him]
I seem to have acquired more than a new name. It is a great honor. I hope I can be worthy of it.
That's my father's way of saying thank you. This is mine.
[Princess Elaine kisses Jack]
I shall immediately go out and find another giant to slay.
Welcome to Castle Pendragon.
I had a sample of your welcome outside.
I must compliment you on your valor, young man. First you vanquish Cormoran, my giant, then you found your way to this island - a feat in itself. Just now you lashed out and destroyed my dragon men with your magic whip - a stroke of genius! A real tragedy to have come so far only to suffer failure.
If you take one step towards me, horns will sprout from your head. A second step and you will develop cloven hooves and walk on all fours. A third step and the transformation will be complete - you will have become a black ram. So, you see...
Your sword can be an antidote to growing a cashmere coat. Hold it 'fore you as you go, hilt above and point below.
