A mother never forgets by Stratoc A mother never forgets by Stratoc
ok. the httyd 2 trailer was the most beautiful thing i ever saw. I cried. :aww: I think Dreamworks broke the mold: this movie doesn't look like it's targeting a kid-only audience. 

And I love the way they aged the characters... I love how AVERAGE everyone looks. I mean, they're all appealing (winks at Hiccup), but they're not 10/10, like in disney princess movies. AND I LOVE THE AVERAGENESS: Hiccup's crooked teeth, Astrid's big ears, beard stubble, hairy, fat, dreadlocked vikings. :love:

AND THE DRAGONS... SO. COOL. :happybounce:

I watched this movie with friends the other day, and Valka says 'No, you were only a babe,' and one of my friends cuts in with 'he's *still* a babe."
Lost it laughing. We missed the entire dramatic exchange after that xD

That part of the trailer really surprised me. VALHALLARAMA RETURNED! Well, Valka, but all the same XD
Very good drawing<?xml:namespace prefix = da />:) (Smile)

thank you! :w00t:
I was actually kind of expecting his mother showing up again when the name "Valka" was brought up this summer... It just echoed Valhallarama so much.

You're welcome.
When I heard that there would be a new character named Valka not give much importance, but when I found out (right through the trailer) that was the mother of Hiccup, I was like<?xml:namespace prefix = da />Wow!

Awesome job on this. I'm interested to see why DreamWorks has brought Valka into the movie. I can't wait any longer XD

I know, I'm so glad it seems to be geared toward older people too! I have a friend who saw he first one and didn't like because she thought it was too young for her, and she wasn't going to see the second one, but after seeing that I might be able to convince her!

This is both sweet and tearjerking, not the least because Val doesn't recognize Hiccup in the books after his growth spurt and voice change, not until he speaks to her.
