Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon 2 is full of comedy, action and thrills … But one thing that might catch movie goers off guard is the film’s reference to homosexuality.
In the fantasy flick, Gobber, the voice of late night host, Craig Ferguson, made a direct comment about his sexuality. “This is why I never married. This and one other reason,” the animated character says. So, during an interview with Ferguson to talk about the sequel, HipHollywood got straight to the point and asked the star about his character’s sexuality.
“I think that the implication would be that he is [gay]. I think, maybe more will be revealed later on,” Craig responded.
Co-star, Gerard Butler chimed in, “When I heard that in the movie I actually thought he was just missing a very vital body part which never gave him the confidence [to get married]. In Viking times, probably nobody wanted to marry if you don’t have your thingamagig.”
According to the director, Dean DeBlois, Gobber is indeed a gay man and while watching the film, Dean says it’ll take audiences a moment to realize, like, ‘Did he just say what I think he said?’”
DeBlois added, “Because I’m a gay man, and I don’t draw attention to myself for that reason. It’s just a fact of who I am, and the way the world is, and it’s nice to treat it as just a passing notion that isn’t something that people have to get so up in arms about.”
How To Train Your Dragon 2 is in theaters now.
