The other day I purchased the How to Train Your Dragon on Blu-Ray, a little bit more expensive than the DVD version, but seeming I received both a Blu-Ray and DVD copy I wasn't too peeved. That, and the Blu-Ray version comes with loads more extra features.

Including 'How to Draw a Dragon' :

It was a good bit of fun to draw, particularly how the artist kept reminding me to think of the shapes like they were sausages and semi-circles.

There are some interesting deleted scenes that were cut out, interviews with the cast, and of course a short documentary of how they made the film. This is explored further in something they call the Animators Corner, where crew members each commentate on the relevant footage on the screen, while you watch various parts of production on a smaller screen on the bottom right hand corner. I haven't watched it all yet, but from what I've seen it's really generous in the information they provide.

Now I am going to eat a berry tart with some ice-cream. Till next time!


  1. Great report Tim. Animator's Corner sounds like the cool place to hang out! Have you seen the competition on the Spaking Of Animation blog where people can win signed artwork books for HTTYD?

  2. No! Will definitely go and check it out.
