In this behind the scenes look at the dragons created for the How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular (also known as DreamWorks Dragons Live), we see Rarmian Newton (Hiccup) and Sarah McCreanor (Astrid) meeting their dragon costars. Watch them as they check out the large Nadder and Gronckle animatronic dragons as well as one of the dragon suit type puppets that’s worn and operated by a performer. The suit is quite impressive since the head and face are fairly well articulated and the whole thing is fairly large, yet it’s all light enough to be worn and operated by one person. Rarmian and Sarah also get a look at the wireless control unit known as a voodoo rig that enables puppeteers to control the large dragons in the arena live during the show.
