How to Train Your Dragon script
Synopsis: Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is a Norse teenager from the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. His progressive views and weird sense of humor make him a misfit, despite the fact that his father (Gerard Butler) is chief of the clan. Tossed into dragon-fighting school, he endeavors to prove himself as a true Viking, but when he befriends an injured dragon he names Toothless, he has the chance to plot a new course for his people's future.

STOICK:

Any Night Furies?

VIKING #1

None so far.

"Dragon" DeBlois/Sanders Final Draft (Rev.19) 02-13-2010 4.

STOICK:

(relieved)

Good.

VIKING:

Hoist the torches!

Massive flaming braziers are raised on poles, lighting up the

night sky... and revealing swirling dragons of all types.

Below, Hiccup crosses an open plaza and ducks into an open

building with a tall chimney.

INT. BLACKSMITH STALL - CONTINUOUS

He crosses behind a counter, where a peg-legged, one-armed

hulk of a Blacksmith reshapes blades with a hammer and tongs

appendage.

GOBBER:

Ah! Nice of you to join the party.

I thought you’d been carried off.

Hiccup dons a leather apron and starts to put away Gobber's

scattered appendages.

HICCUP:

Who me? Nah, come on! I’m way too

muscular for their taste. They

wouldn’t know what to do with all

this.

Hiccup strikes a bodybuilder pose.

GOBBER:

They need toothpicks, don’t they?

Hiccup gets to work, transferring bent and chipped weapons to

the forge as Vikings crowd the counter for replacements.

HICCUP (V.O.)

The meathead with attitude and

interchangeable hands is Gobber.

I've been his apprentice ever since

I was little. Well...littler.

EXT. VILLAGE - CONTINUOUS

ON STOICK:

STOICK:

We move to the lower defenses.

We’ll counter-attack with the

catapults.

"Dragon" DeBlois/Sanders Final Draft (Rev.19) 02-13-2010 5.

Armed men rush past, flanking others who carry sheep to

safety. Stoick follows up the rear as, overhead, a dragon

strafes the rooftops with Napalm-like fire.

HICCUP (V.O.)

See? Old village. Lots and lots

of new houses.

VIKING:

FIRE!

In response, the fire brigade charges through the plaza --

four TEENS, tugging a large wooden cask on wheels. From it,

they fill buckets of water to douse the flames. One among

them is a cute, energetic Viking girl.
