The surprise DreamWorks has in store for us in the first How to Train Your Dragon movie is that we meet Toothless before we know it.
At the beginning, the classic DreamWorks logo appears on the screen in which the boy sits on a crescent moon with a fishing line dangling. in the night sky we can see the toothless silhouette as it flies past it's one of those blink and you'll miss it moments the animators love to slide right under our noses A lot of people might not know this but how to
dragonwas actually a book first before it became a hit animated movie franchise in 2010 and in the 12-book Toothless series, the lovable but diminutive
dragoncharacter is actually very, very small.
The original description wasn't just the size of an iguana, but the animators decided that for the movie it should be much bigger and we ended up with the adorable toothless giant we have today. Its size wasn't the only aspect of toothless. which was modified from the book version along with making it bigger, the animators also modeled its appearance and behavior after a black panther with added qualities of house cats and dogs, these qualities not only make a toothless dragon very cute , but that allow it to be more relatable with the audience, the dragon is capable of expressing different emotions that remind us of our pets and other animals that we have seen in nature.
There is a perfect example of animators using a real life. Animals as inspiration for Toothless for a scene where Toothless has a problem with the tip of his tail and is shown not knowing what to do. One of the animators actually glued a ball of duct tape to the end of the tail of his own cat's. and filmed his cat trying to get rid of him. he has never slayed the dragon while all the other vikings pride themselves on the fact that their pick up is so much smoother and they would rather not deal any damage to them, ironically he is the only character we see who kills a dragon at the end when he has to take it down .
Red Death to save everyone and bring peace between dragons and vikings in the scene where hiccup reads the dragon's manual, it may seem that he is reading an ancient language or something made up for the movies, actually what he is reading is written in p English lain which has been encrusted or encrypted in ancient runes. Runes are the first written language developed by the Germanic people, so what he is reading is actually accurate to the time period in which Hiccup lives. With careful translation, it is possible to find out exactly what Hiccup is. reading the terrible terrors are known to be the smallest species of dragon, but no less frightening to anyone unlucky enough to cross their path, what you may not know is that the sounds that the terrible terrors make are actually based on in the sound that a chihuahua doesn't make any chihuahua either specifically a chihuahua named Paco one of the sound designers had seen Paco on the internet and they contacted his owners Paco was compensated one hundred dollars for his time and effort one of the most touching things And interesting from the end of the first movie is how the narrators decided to have Hiccup lose his leg.
He is the first amputee to appear on an animal. paired movie that is not for comedy relief and apparently audiences had a lot to do with why it was kept when DreamWorks screened the movie to a focus group that people were so moved by the ending that they insisted it stay as it was because it didn't take anything away from who hiccup was as a person and the scene right before Toothless brings Astrid and hiccup to the dragon nest, we got a glimpse of many different species of dragons all flying eerily together through the blue clouds if you look closely at one of the Dragons that can be seen in the animators easter egg caught in the clutches of the monstrous nightmare it is Paul Gloria the hippo from Madagascar well you could say it could be any hippo this fact has been confirmed by the filmmakers in the audio commentary The town where Hiccup and Astrid live is called Berk, which may sound like any old Viking word, but it's actually ti It has a deeper meaning: Birk is actually a British slang term and a bit i.
As a result, it's taken from the song Berkeley hunt and the shortened form is an endearing way of calling someone a little silly, this is only used by people who don't actually know it came from the song, however it doesn't mean anything hurtful , animators love to add references to some of their favorite classic movies whenever they can, and this one that's
hiddenin the first, How to Train Your Dragon, is so quick it might go unnoticed on Hiccups' design board, where draws up plans to fix Toothless' Tail you can see a drawing that looks suspiciously like the flux capacitor from Back to the Future the little Y-shaped device that allows Marty and Doc to time travel in their DeLorean the scene from the first movie How to Train Your Dragon The one where Toothless learns what a smile is and how to do it was in the script, but it was actually inspired by someone more personal.
The whole scene is inspired by the way one of the animators, Suns himself, learns. ed to smile after knowing this fact going back and rewatching the scene makes it even more adorable and touching when you imagine a little toothless baby learning to do the same thing you opened this resident all hell is going to break loose and my underwear. Good thing I brought access while Vikings in Viking lore were a big part of creating the world of How to Train Your Dragon. These are not the only popular animated and movie characters to have drawn from the same culture as the famous Asgardian god of thunder Thor. it is also drawn from Norse mythology and you might see an important similarity between it and the Stoic.
If you take a close look at the Hammer of the Stoics, you'll see that it bears a strong resemblance to Thor's Mjolnir from the Marvel movie franchise. How to Train Your Dragon has quite a few famous voices lending their talents to the cast of characters like Jay Baruchel Gerard Butler America Ferrera Kristen Wiig Jonah Hill and Christopher mintz-plasse II but a secret cameo could make fans of the books and fans very happy. the movies. David Tennant, who actually recorded the audiobook versions of the original stories, has a small cameo as the spy cloud. The second in command of the Stoics, well, he doesn't have a name in the movie.
She appears in the credits and super fans will immediately recognize her voice. The second installment in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise sees Hiccup and Toothless five years later and introduced even more incredible actors to the animated world. Cate Blanchett lends her voice to the character of alka Djimon Honsou as Draaga and Kit Harington as Eret Kate Blanchet signed on because the first film had been a huge success with her two young children and she wanted to do a project that they were both very excited about. This was, of course, before she joined the cast of four Ragnarok.
While How to Train Your Dragon 2 may seem like a sprawling, epic film, its timeline may surprise you, even though the first film in the franchise takes place over several weeks. All the action and adventure in the second is condensed into just a couple of days, this is made all the more interesting by the fact that even though its exciting story makes it seem like the movie flies by in one hundred and two minutes. Even though it's the longest DreamWorks Animated movie to date, there's an amazing reference in How to Train Your Dragon 2 that some viewers might not even notice, but Game of Thrones fans probably would have picked up on right away in the scene in which Astrid turns into air. and he says you don't know anything there's more than what he meets with the team this is a reference to how Ygritte says you don't know anything Jon Snow in Game of Thrones the line was drawn because Kit Harington doesn't just voice Aaron in the movie Instead, he plays Jon Snow on the popular TV show in the scene where Valka recognizes the hiccups, she does so because she notices the scar on her chin.
You can see the same scar on his chin when he's a baby and stoically picks him up. It's quite subtle. a hint from the animation department, but that kind of attention to detail and all those little additions are what make this movie franchise one of the best out there in the dragon stables in the town of Berk. You may notice some bordered drawings on the wooden walls of the barn, these drawings may seem insignificant, but if we know the animators, nothing is there without a reason and almost always has a deeper meaning than at first glance, these drawings were actually done by all the children of all the team members that worked on the movie, that's an amazing terk to have parents that worked for such a great animation studio, the ending of how to
yourdragon 2 was quite devastating for a lot of people and be careful if you haven't seen the movie because we are about to spoil it. for you in the original draft of the script when Toothless is brainwashed and becomes violent through no fault of his own, Gobber was supposed to be killed by him, but when famed director Guiller Mo del Toro read it and suggested it be instead stoic the one that dies as it would have more impact.
There's a Momin in the second movie that's a very direct callout to the first, "how to train your dragon," but so subtle that it can be hard to find unless you're looking for it. Drago's beak buffalo loses its left tusk in the same way that Drago himself loses his left arm to a dragon. the way Toothless loses his left caudal fin Gobber is one of our favorite characters voiced by the hilarious Craig Ferguson Gobber the burp is definitely one of the biggest sources of comic relief on film as the lovable and enthusiastic if goofy sidekick to something stoic which may actually surprise you since Gobber is actually the first animated character to come out in a DreamWorks movie, he alludes to that when he lists the reasons he never married and Ferguson confirmed and wrote this. er Dean Dubois as anticipation builds for the third installment in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, we know a little bit about the next movie, we know it will be the final movie in this series and we're done.
The adventures of Toothless and Hiccup will also introduce us to the
hiddenworld of dragons. It's also been revealed in the trailer that Toothless is the last Fury of the Night because the rest have been hunted to extinction by Grimille with every good movie. a lot of rumors or fans going crazy trying to figure out what the plot is going to be about or something leaks from the studio and unexpectedly reveals it the rumors about the hidden world of How to Train Your Dragon are pure speculation but they could be on to something that some suggest that in this movie we will finally learn the reason why all dragon species have gone extinct and why we don't have dragons co-existing with us today, whether this is correct remains to be seen, but it could be right in the trailer we get to see the introduction of the white knight fury who toothless immediately falls in love with and we get to see his hilarious attempts to woo her as she dances like a bird of paradise, some think due to the danger they are in.
