Hold onto your helms guys, Dreamworks JUST released a teaser trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 and it’s brought back the magic and whimsy of the first one! (AT LEAST, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION ANYWAY)
There’s so much I want to say about this trailer — from the way they reused key movements, to the introduction of new whale-like sea dragons, to the feeling of flying, and the change to Hiccup’s design and oh my goodness do you see that armor and that new “dragon wing membrane”? I think we’re used to the “ride on the back of beloved animal companion” trope, but what I love about Hiccup and Toothless here is how they can now move side by side — equals who love the gift of flight that Hiccup gave back to Toothless and that Toothless in turn inspired Hiccup to pursue himself.
Also it looks like Hiccup fixed the dragon-tail sail-rig — Toothless can steer himself and doesn’t need Hiccup; I find returning his flying independence to just be the sweetest thing and I can’t
I’m just going to sit down here now and flail at these feelings – so here enjoy some Toothless and older!Hiccup
