How to Train Your Dragon Loves WoW
Last night a couple of friends of mine came over to order take-out and watch How to Train Your Dragon. I had heard that it was an adorable movie and that I would really like it, but had for some reason not really wanted to watch it until now-ish. And while it is adorable and charming and funny and heart-warming, there was something else about the movie that struck me.
There seemed to be a lot of WoW references.
I know what you’re thinking–“Bethany, of course you would think there are WoW references, it’s a movie about Vikings and dragons.” And yes, you are right. But LOOK at one of the main characters, Stoick, who is the dad/Viking leader.
Could he not be a Bronzebeard or Wildhammer? I mean….c’mon!
And then there’s Fishlegs, the kid in dragon school who is constantly like “Okay to face this dragon, we’ll need +5 Agility, +12 Stamina, -1 Spirit, and +48 armor. Got that?” Coincidence? I think not.
The other thing in the film that really struck me were the doors to the dragon school…but I can’t find a still image of them on the interwebs. 😦 However, they straight up look like the gates of Ironforge, complete with statue. No lie.
Anyway, if you haven’t seen the film, it’s adorable and I highly recommend it for some time when you’re not playing/sleeping.
