This morning, DreamWorks updated the How to Train Your Dragon 2 site with new pictures and stats for the Vikings and dragons along with a new look!
The coolest part of the new site is the Dragonpedia. It's basically the dragon manual updated for the digital age. Right now there are only nine dragons in it, but it seems like it will be updated with more of the TV show and film dragons in the future.
The newest dragon is Vaka's Stormcutter, named Cloudjumper:
The owl-like Cloudjumper has been Valka's companion of choice for flying and rescuing other dragons over the last twenty years. Cloudjumper's pride, confidence, and large size lead him to think of himself as the top dragon in Valka's mountain fortress, second only to the Bewilderbeast, who is the king of all dragons in the nest.
Due to their two decades of experience together, Cloudjumper and Valka share a wordless shorthand when flying. Whereas other dragon riders need to call out commands to turn or shoot, Cloudjumper instinctively knows when Valka wants him to move or attack, adding to their combined mystique and prowess in battle.
And Cloudjumper is big compared to Valka:
We've seen a few seconds of Cloudjumper in the trailer, but there are even more pictures of Cloudjumper and Valka from Dragons 2 on the new site:
DreamWorks also added a Viking Guide to the site, which includes pictures of the main characters and some less mathematical stats, like height, weight, eye color, and favorite weapon (interestingly, Stock's weapon of choice is no longer a hammer).
There's also a "location" stat, which is curious because so far, all seven characters are from Berk. Perhaps other characters from outside Berk, like Valka, Drago, and Eret will show up soon.
For the first time ever, we know the official ages of the dragon trainers in the second film. Hiccup, Astrid, and Snotlout are 20 years old and Ruffnut, Tuffnut, and Fishlegs are 19. Stoick is 50!
Here are some of the new character photos from the Viking Guide:
And perhaps even cooler, we get to see how big the dragons are compared to their riders:
