Here’s some great video footage showing off the completed Deadly Nadder animatronic dragon for the How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular show. This was taken at the media launch event for the show which gave the press and fans a chance to see one of the dragons in action for the first time. It also gives some idea how the dragons will interact with live actors during the show. The look and movement of the dragon are both superb, and its ability to breathe fire and smoke add to the realism. Take a look at all the detail in the skin texture and the coloring. Notice how much larger the Deadly Nadder is here compared to its size in the movie, presumably to make it stand out better in a large arena. The creative and engineering teams need to be commended for creating such a large dragon that can move so smoothly and naturally. This show is sure to be a hit.
