Hiccup and Astrid[edit]

So there's been a bit of back and forth with the status of Hiccup and Astrid's relationship status, so I figured we should hash that out here in Talk to head off any further edits and reverts... my take on it is based on a scattering of episodes from the TV shows, so it may not be complete / up to date. In the shows, they are consistently referred to as boyfriend & girlfriend, so I assume that should be considered valid. Over the course of the show, they become 'betrothed', which I assume is similar enough to being engaged, so we could definitely say they are betrothed, possibly that they are engaged. However, there has been no talk of them actually getting married at any point, so I would say it's premature to say that they are 'future husband / future wife' or anything of that sort.

My opinion is its worth waiting a few months for the last series of the TV adaptation to come out (due out in March, I believe), failing that wait for the film. Bearing in mind it wont be too long now before the film is released. Nightfury 08:47, 24 January 2018 (UTC)
Hello, sorry I'm a few months late. So according to Dean DeBlois, whatever happens in Race to the Edge (as well as all the other shows/shorts) does not affect the movies, and "the film trilogy tends to stick to its film characters and script", sort of like a separate movie canon. In other words, "Race to the Edge deals with what the first two movies go over." Besides, none of the shows and shorts take place between the second and third film. However, Dean does also mention that "the movie promises future developments for Hiccup and Astrid but to say anymore would be a spoiler." Judging by the second film, I'd say they're definitely at the romantic relationship stage, especially with Stoick's "that's my future daughter-in-law" comment at the start of that movie. In conclusion, just take for now that they're still at the same point in their relationship as during the second film. Cheers, Weslam (talk • contrib) 18:32, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

UK release date in lead[edit]

The only tie to the UK is that the author of the book series the film is based on is British. The UK had no production role in this film. No indication in the article that Cressida Cowell had any input to the production of the film and the lead states the film is only loosely based the series. None of this is sufficient to justify listing the UK release in the infobox per WP:FILMRELEASE. Geraldo Perez (talk) 04:26, 8 December 2018 (UTC)

Light Fury Species[edit]

Please stop saying she's a female Night Fury. She's explicitly not; it's a lion and tiger type of deal. [1] Got2Hands (talk) 02:30, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

Plot-section currently hints of in-universe[edit]

Hello! I've never seen any of these films, and find this: "Meanwhile, a white female Fury, held captive by warlords, is given to infamous dragon hunter Grimmel the Grisly as bait for him to capture Toothless for the warlords' use as an alpha." hard to penetrate. What is a fury? What is an alpha? You should tell the clueless reader, in-text. Gråbergs Gråa Sång (talk) 15:27, 5 March 2019 (UTC)

Night Lights[edit]

First sentence of the last paragraph of the plot states "Ten years later, Toothless and the Light Fury are shown to have given birth to three hybrid dragon fledglings known as Night Lights."

The species name of the hybrid dragon offspring has never been officially confirmed by DreamWorks, meaning they are not called "Night Lights."

Please add a reputable source to this statement or this statement will be removed come 19 March 2019 +0:00 UTC.

Here's a page from one of the books based on the movie. https://i.pinimg.com/564x/24/02/ea/2402ea096b0160ac14b432a782a2e97b.jpg Got2Hands (talk) 08:13, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
Requesting a link to the product page of the book so that I may confirm it's accuracy. Thank you, JAH2k (talk) 15:47, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
Five seconds of Googling has revealed several officially licensed products bearing the HTTYD: Hidden World logo referring to the fledglings as Night Lights. [1][2]. Further, the book mentioned by Got2Hands can be found here, again bearing the official HTTYD Hidden World logo conveying it's status as an official or licensed product.   «l|Promethean|l»  (talk) 15:45, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
