Video: The Sound of Dragons



Here's an interview with Dean DeBlois and sound designer Randy Thom about what it took to create the sounds of the dragons in How to Train Your Dragon 2!

With its diversity of dragons, How to Train Your Dragon 2 has a lot of opportunities for great sound momenents. Sometimes, getting a sound that matches a dragon requires recording and mixing real-life animals. Other times, it requires Randy Thom.

Thanks, Aty S Behsam!

    Please don't take this the wrong way but.... why???
    this used to be a family like community now it is something people will just check to see if there are any new dragon news
    I feel like not letting us talk to each other is like taking away our instincts to talk and be kind to people. I am not going to rebel your rules i just feel that not many other people will join. and we are already losing people
    i still love this site though so great job!

    Hello, I'm new

  4. Hi, I feel the same way that's another reason why I left but I read the rules and one of them was not to say hello or goodbye to anyone and people already do that so... I don't know. I told God_dragons_love that I would come back on because I couldn't say no to her. I'm sorry for causing all that trouble, I didn't mean to. When I'm upset about something, it just makes me act... oh I don't know, different. I just wanted more time or for Icelandic to send me the roleplaying so I can make it into a story so sorry everybody. :(

  6. Yeah but in a way it is talking about dragonsy because my videos are basically all about dragons and IcelandicEel, I saw your video that you made on YT for if that was actually you and I liked it. And ok we can talk about something else.

  14. No, you can definitely discuss things with each other, but you have to be inclusive about it. Your comments are just as much a part of this site as the article above it. Imagine you're a new visitor to this site (or someone from DreamWorks) and you scroll down to the comments. What would you want to see? What would make you want to participate in the conversation?

    The best comments are those that are part of meaningful discussions, which encourage people to join in and share their thoughts, rather than using the comments as a disposible chat room. One of the reasons I created the forum was to allow members of the community to chat and have off-topic discussions. Disqus is not made for that, nor is this part of the site. I love talking with people here, but it's very difficult when you have to wade through disposible comments to get to interesting discussions.

    By "disposible comments," I mean ones that I can delete and no one will notice. I've been doing that for months with exactly the types of comments that I have listed in the rules, and no one has noticed. I just want to make it clearer that these kinds of comments will be deleted on this site, as they are on virtually any other commenting platform on any other site. The rules are really commenting etiquette codified, rather than anything serious (other than spoilers or piracy).

    @IcelandicEel Why can't we say goodbye or hello? And could you create a new post for roleplaying? I can't think of a better word for it... um, like when you post dragon news, it's a brand new topic.

  24. Because it's irritating to have to read though all of that? It's commenting etiquette. Kind of like you wouldn't throw paper airplanes at a fancy restaruant. Paper airplanes are fun, but there's a time and a place for them. Similarly, chatting with other people is fun, but it's not the kind of interaction one expects in the comments section, nor is it what Disqus was designed for.

    I have a suggestion for the forum: The reason I don't like it for roleplaying is because you have to create a whole new post. On Disqus, you can quickly post your reply. Maybe you could find a program similar to Disqus but made for chatting, that you could make into a topic on the forum? Thanks for your time! :)

  39. It's fine! A lot of countries have release dates in July, and I don't think people should be expected to see it on the very first day. There are probably lots of people in the US who haven't seen it still. I'm thinking after August 1, 99% of people who want to see it will have seen it, so it's okay for people to talk about spoilers openly on this site and on the forum. There is, however, a spoiler-allowed community on the forum if you want to discuss spoilery parts of the movie now.

    The Vikings are awake, dragons too,
    There' endless possibilities of what to do.
    The things we will talk of just endless.

    For months I've waited for this day,
    Thinking "Why do they stay away?"
    And now finally, my wishing has been blessed.

    There'll be actual people about.
    It'll be totally strange,
    But, oh, how long I've waited for this change.

    'Cause for the first time in forever,
    There'll be trollers on the sight.
    For the first time in forever,
    I will comment through the night.

    Don't know if this feeling is joyful,
    But I'm feeling oh so fine
    'Cause for the first time in forever,

    ReplyDelete
  73. Awe Louis don't call your life useless.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ah, finally... My question has been answered. I always fascinated by the dragon variations. Not only HTTYD has a wide variety of dragons, but they also ensure that no dragons have the same vocalization with another dragon species, and this what makes the dragons in HTTYD universe unique :D


    Randy Thom did a good job designing these voices. I assume at the Itchy Armpit part, where Hiccup said "What? You want an apology?", Toothless seemed to say "Yeah". I bet it's his voice, modulated.

    I would love to have these dragons ringtones. I also didn't hear clearly Hotburple (Grump) vocals.

  124. HiccupToothlessFan95July 4, 2014 at 6:58 PM

    I wan't to ask a question about the Thunderdrum and Timberjacks of HTTYD 2. Don't worry this is not a spoiler if you have watched the trailers.


    Does anyone know if Timberjacks and Thunderdrums are pack dragons. Because in the teaser trailer it shows Hiccup and Toothless flying through a pack of Thunderdrums ,and in the trailer they fly with a couple of Timberjacks. In the Book of Dragons from the first movie it says Thunderdrums are reclusive dragons, and in the Timberjack chapter it gives a couple of fact's about it's razor sharp wings. And i know that in Riders of Berk how to pick your dragon Hiccup and Stoick find Thornado protecting another Thunderdrum.
    On the Dragonpedia in the Timberjack section it says "Native to dense, wooded areas, Timberjacks are acutely sensitive creatures that prefer the peace found in their beloved forests". In the Thunderdrum section it says nothing about solitute or anything of the sort, so i have no idea what to believe.


    Also as a side note, in the the Night Fury section of the Dragonpedia it says a Night Fury's shot limit is 8 but in the series and movies Toothless fires alot more than just 8 shots. Just an observation i don't know if other's have thought of this or i am just overthinking things.


    Please reply if you know something i don't, because it has been on my mind for a pretty long time now.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Vorpent vs.PotatoJuly 4, 2014 at 7:13 PM

    I know nothing really of Timberjacks, besides what was in The Book of Dragons, but yes, your right, it says "This reclusive dragon inhabits sea cave and dark tide pools." I noticed Toothless' inconsistent shots, too, in Gobber's Training secrets, it was stated that his shot limit was 5. But also take into consideration that Deadly Nadders and Zipplebacks were moved to different classes, the latter's former class (Fear) removed completely. My guess is DreamWorks makes small changes without thinking of the observant fans.

  128. HiccupToothlessFan95July 4, 2014 at 7:27 PM

    Maybe they are older than Thornado, but that dosen't make sense because Toothless also grew since the series i don't know but good observation on your part

  129. Vorpent vs.PotatoJuly 4, 2014 at 7:30 PM

    Thanks. Maybe...I highly doubt there would be that many Titan Wings in one place and time.... Maybe they're a sub-species? Odin knows.

    ReplyDelete
  130. HiccupToothlessFan95July 4, 2014 at 7:35 PM

    Or Dreamworks is just keeping their mouth shut for some surprise later on. But the sub species is a pretty good theory especially since they adde the Hotburple's

    ReplyDelete
  131. Vorpent vs.PotatoJuly 4, 2014 at 7:39 PM

    That's very possible. And yeah, Grump is in the Gronckle family so it makes sense that Thunderdrums might have extended relatives.

    By the way i remembered something about the tv series. When you watched them did you notice that Toothless's tail never retracted when he was flying alone unless it was plot related.

    Those are very good points and i myself have tried to figure out certain things about dragons also but i just want to put this in perspective, both the timberjack and thunderdrum only had brief cameos in httyd2 for all we know both timberjacks and thunderdrums are pack animals just out hunting and if not then maybe its mating season and all the males and felmales gather to mate and raise young, like with penguins or bears.

    Sound effects are just absolutely amazing. I envy and respect all sound designers. They have to go out and find the sound they're looking for if it isn't already there and even if it is, just modify it to match the creature/object/person etc. Just brilliant. Keep up the good work!

    Don't get me wrong I like the song Where No One Goes but I kind of wish they would have kept the Beyond The Clouds song that they had during the teaser trailer when Hiccup and Toothless are flying. Beyond the Clouds was just more moving for me during that scene. Plus having a song that had lyrics while during the movie just seemed out of character because usually all of HTTYD's music is just instruments. Does anyone else agree or understand what I mean?

    ReplyDelete
  172. TimbertheTimberjackJuly 8, 2014 at 11:33 AM

    I feel the same way, Beyond the Clouds was a beautiful peice that fit every scene perfectly. To me "where no one goes" was a song i felt was unnescesary to put in the actual movie but rather just save it for the credits. I could make my own tweaks to httyd2, putting beyond the clouds in would be one of them. But to fully answer your question, yes i agree with you 100% and yes i understand clompletely.

  180. TimbertheTimberjackJuly 8, 2014 at 10:23 PM

    Im no movie director but something ive learned from observation is that lyric songs in a movie can be a hit or miss; take that part from shrek when they played halleluja for an example, i dont know about you but i cried during that scene. I guess my point is that when a scene is very emotional or slow going a lyric song would be nice but if its just a happy, heart pounding scene i personally just want to enjoy it and not try to understand the lyrics. I guess it all depends on the situation in the movie. (For the record i think halleluja or an old norse song would be a good alternative for stoic's ship)

    I'm just glad the "Where No One Goes" track was still being mixed during the (rushed) First Five Minutes Trailer. Now I have to say that I like both versions, but here's the thing: "Beyond the Clouds sounds a tad bit hollow and serious for an adrenaline-fun sequence, and it's a commercial song that gets used in other trailers. Just think if that became the next Han Zimmer horn BWOOOWM! sound!
    It needed a fast song, not an epic one, and there is a certain balance between playfulness and seriousness that is still being set up during this part of the film, a chance to say that they are not gonna ham you down with the battle as being the single important plot point. There is also the neat soundscape as Hiccup opens his wingsuit, and that's not meant to feel too dark and big. They've clearly skydived countless times before.
    I'm not saying that it is the perfect song (still more fitting to the movie lyrics-wise than in the first film). But I think "Beyond the Clouds" would need to build up to "the world got a whole lot bigger" line, not follow after it, if the dramatic feels of it were to fit that scene. I'll always have problems with lyrical songs and I still feel challenged when I try to figure out how to accept Jonsi's experimental rock/ synth&voice soundscapes/ falsetto vocals, but I still enjoy them personally. So that's my take on this after numerous prior listenings and warming up to the song.
