Live-action HTTYD

So, I want to not be excited about them doing a live-action How to Train Your Dragon because, like many other people, I think they are going a little overboard with remakes/live-actions. But I just love HTTYD soooooo much that I get excited just thinking about more to come. Especially when I hear that the original director is also going to be doing the live-action I just can’t help but feel that little nugget of excitement grow.

Now, on the more realistic side, I believe that there is one thing that will make or break this movie. Yup, you guessed it, CGI. They need to get the perfect combination of cool, scary, and cute to knock this movie out of the park. Since it’s “real” I don’t think they can look as cute as they do in the animation, but they also can’t look creepy. It’s going to be a very fine line that they will have to tread for people to be happy. But if they are successful in doing that I feel like everything else will fall into place.

Besides the CGI, I’m also a little nervous about the casting of Hiccup. I will fully admit(only because I know that a bunch of other people are the same) that I had what I like to call a “cartoon crush” on Hiccup when it first came out. And because of that, I’m not sure how my emotions will handle seeing a real version of Hiccup particularly the fact that I’m not sure how old they’ll make him. Will he be age appropriate for me to still have a crush or will I have to squash that crush very quickly? I can see them making Hiccup and his friends either 14 or in their early 20s. Either way, I need to know sooner rather than later so I can prepare myself.



I love movies!!!!!!!!!!
