How to Train Your Dragon:

NOHBODY: 'Which is appropriate, because Scotland is totally viking...'

Not totally, but large chunks of it, including most of the West Coast. The island where Hiccup lives is based on a couple of places in the Outer Hebrides, though it almost exactly fits most mainland Scots' perceptions of Shetland.

It might be interesting if the sequel brings in other creatures of Norse mythology. Sea serpents, giants, elves, nature spirits...

I am vexed!
Dragons are actually pretty rare in Norse mythology; they feature much more prominently (but are still uncommon) in late medieval Christian legends. Their prominence in this film can be attributed to the osmotic quality of dragons in culture.

Apparently the Sea Monster bit is semi-covered - according to Book Of Dragons sea monsters in HTTYD are just dragons that live in the sea.

-jaw drops- Okay, I've gotta watch this.

But then who will Kit Harington be playing in the sequel?

Is it too early to call this one of the best movie-based TV shows ever?

I was not expecting the animation to be so downright amazing. Though it seems they traded backgrounds for character animation (kind of the opposite of Kung Fu Panda Legends Of Awesomeness).

And September! I wasn't expecting it to be out so soon.

^ As long as they don't exaggerate the characters. Y'know, make Snotlout into so much of a jerk that he's totlly unlikeable, make Fishlegs into a wimp, that sort of thing. I don't expect them to derail them, per se, but an adaptation making a character's traits or flaws so all-consuming that they cease to be entertaining happens all the time.

Also, Mark Hamill. Playing the villain. Absolutely not surprised.

And I was expecting the main villain to be a human, probably a raider or barbarian bandit or something like that. Maybe also a dragon-hater.

[up] I don't know what they'll do about Fishlegs, but Snotlout actually wasn't that much of a jerk in Gift of the Night Fury. Who knows?

It's pretty ambitious from a writing standpoint too. Goal is to make it so it seamlessly blends from the first film to the second as the show goes on

Stoic initially absconds with Toothless early in the series, but he's a little to heavy for Toothless to carry, leading Stoic to take control of the massive dragon Thunderdrum.

I want to see this. Now. All of it.

Especially Stoic "absconding" with Toothless, which gives me the impression that he tries to commandeer him cop-style and ends up falling on his face because damn that guy is huge.

I also imagine Toothless wouldn't like it. And I think Stoick might have problems working the tailfin.

So is there any HTTYD/Brave fan fic yet? I mean, they seem like they could cross over easily.

There's a few, I think, but I haven't read them.

Oh my gosh this is great, I was so concerned about the characters would look but.. phew... I'm looking forward to this.

Didn't know there was going to be a series. I liked the movie except the main character, whose voice I hated and found incredibly annoying.

This film is unutterably beautiful. Makes me even more pissed off that the Pern series of books never got a live action or animated adaptation though...

I love that the Thunderdrum became a part of the group, it is so cool looking. And it fits Stoick perfectly.
Bunai is known to make spelling and grammar errors, but will attempt to correct them once realized.

I'm back, baby.
So, I've been keeping up with the series and I have to say that this is the best film to TV transition I have ever seen from a work. Truly hope that the quality remains consistent.

Curious about the schedule change though. Anyone with the proper context know if a shift from Thursday to Wednesday is a good or bad sign?

Also, I wonder how they're going to do the voices in the next film. I mean, it seems like it might be a bit of a slap in the face to the TV actors to bring back the first film actors.

Added Note: Fishlegs and Meatlug are adorable.

Any fan art of a humanized grungel?
