So, when we were still speculating over what was going to happen in HTTYD 2, lots of people did predict that Stoick would die. I thought he would too, but then I saw this on Wikipedia:
Quote:
 
"Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T. J. Miller and Kristen Wiig are set to return in the third film.[13] Cate Blanchett will also reprise her role as Valka from the second film."
Gerard Butler is set to return for the third film! So, anytime from then on that I saw someone speculating that he'd die in the second, I was like "Nu-uh! Because Wikipedia says he's coming back for the third!"

Aaaaaannnd now, obviously, after watching the second movie, I feel like a huge jackass. :(
So, I would like to take this chance to say I'm sorry.

But seriously, how can this be? I mean, I guess if there's more flashbacks, like there were in the second, but that would probably be a very minor part.

I really doubt they would do this, but I really hope it doesn't turn out that he's still alive. I think the funeral scene makes it pretty clear that that won't happen, though, because they burned his body.

Maybe he's coming back to voice a different character? Animated movies sometimes do that, and Gerard does have a great Viking voice.

I don't know. Anyone else have any thoughts? :/

Well from what I've heard, the entire movie seems like it might be retrospective with the explaining of how dragons aren't around anymore. So, maybe we could see lots of flashbacks with Stoick in them. Maybe the events before HTTYD2 started the ball rolling on the dragons' disappearance. I don't know though this is an interesting question.

Maybe flashbacks or something? Because we already know that it will continue where the sequel leaves off. So maybe there will be (lot of) flashbacks with Stoick in it.

Honestly, there only needs to be one flashback with Stoick to justify bringing Butler back. I wouldn't read any more into things at present.
Number of times I've watched the trailer: 18.

My pet peeve: people who refer to complete strangers by their first name. The correct ways to refer to a "John Smith" whom you have never met are Smith, Mr Smith, or John Smith. Not "John". He's not your buddy.

The paragraph from the press release is:
Quote:
 
How to Train Your Dragon 2 and How to Train Your Dragon 3, the next two chapters to the Academy Award®-nominated original film from 2010, will be released on June 20, 2014 and June 18, 2016, respectively. Both are being directed and written by Dean DeBlois (How to Train Your Dragon) and produced by Bonnie Arnold (How to Train Your Dragon). DeBlois and Chris Sanders (The Croods, How to Train Your Dragon) are serving as executive producers. Also inspired by the book series by Cressida Cowell, the sequels will again star Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig.
It is entirely possible Stoick won't even appear in a flashback, personally I think he will. So I wouldn't think too hard about this.

If they resurrect Stoick, I don't know what I'll say in the cinema. :(

Of course, I'm confident that the team isn't going to do something so cheesy.

Stoick could appear in a flashback. Of course it's also possible that he won't appear at all, and the press release was slightly over-generalized on purpose so as to avoid spoilers. Gerard Butler did reprise his role in HTTYD 2, and as far as we know, the rest of the cast is still set for HTTYD 3. So the only slight inaccuracy in that statement is potentially that Gerard Butler starred in the first sequel only rather than both of them, but any attempt to spell that out would have pretty much confirmed Stoick's death right then and there, and I seriously doubt that anybody at the studio would have wanted that.
Come death. Come suffering. I will not live in fear. In this fleeting life where time escapes us, the path of least resistance is a slow quiet death. I'd rather burn out than fade away.

Good point you have there. Maybe the press lied to us to prevent us from guessing the spoilers. :blink:

Should I Write Something Interesting Here?

this came before the second movie, I think that they tried to hide stoicks death, I haven't read any comments above, so idk if anyone have said this, but I'm sure the comments above me are more true to the matter xD
