This is amazing, what they did.
They made Hiccup come to a realization that he will never become what his father is pretty much forcing him into. He’s gone through so much emotion in that one scene that he ends up feeling guilty. Because his actions hurt someone else. He did this.
They also made Stoick come to a realization that his force and expectations were too excessive for Hiccup, that his ignorance for what Hiccup has been going through and his own lack of tolerance and care for Hiccup resulted in such a dramatic way. His actions hurt someone else. He did this.
HOW DID I NEVER CATCH THAT.
And did anyone else notice that both Hiccup and Astrid say ‘So why didn’t you?’
And this movie continues to give me feels. Forever. My favourite animated film.
