Interview a Dragon Trainer

Dragon_130UPDATE: Hiccup replied! You can read his answers to your questions here.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you found an injured dragon and tried to train it? Well, THE STACKS will be bringing in an expert who has gone through that exact experience, and you can get your questions answered! Hiccup, the Viking from the movie How to Train Your Dragon (rated PG) has agreed to answer your burning questions. (Get it? burning. . . dragon! I’m full of cleverness!) Anyway, now is your chance to ask about his experiences with wild dragons, his misunderstood life among the barbaric Vikings, and how his life has changed since the movie made him a star.

Find out more about the characters Hiccup and Astrid in our blog post from last spring when the movie came out in theaters. If you missed it, you’ll get to see How to Train Your Dragon on DVD soon – it’s coming out on October 15. That is also date when I’ll be posting Hiccup’s answers to your questions, so check back here then!

Don’t forget to leave your questions for Hiccup in the Comments.

    It appears someone suggested you listen to Simple Plan. You’re Scandinavian, no? Support your Norwegian friends and listen to Kaizers Orchestra.

    when you were battling the “Green Death,” did you have that plan (weaken the wings then take it out from the inside with a nicely aimed fire-blast) in mind all along? Or did it just come to you, last minute?
    Either way, it was genius! Thanks- you rock!

    Hi Hiccup!
    You’re amazing! A few questions (you don’t have to answer them all): How old are you? Do you have any idea how old Toothless might be? And how did you get started in inventing- your “contraptions/inventions”?

    HTTYD is a great animated movie.
    By the way,Have Hiccup ever met his mother? Where is she? Is it possible to tell us Hiccup’s past in the sequel? In the first movie,he is 17 years old,right?

    How did you feel when you first started taking dragon-fighting lessons as compared to later, when you knew all about dragons from training Toothless?
