This short video gives us a look at the Toothless flying animatronic dragon taking flight for the first time in the rehearsal arena used by Global Creatures. For this test, they haven’t programmed in any facial expression nor head or leg movements yet, so be assured that Toothless will look much better in the actual show. The wing movements look pretty good and see how he can climb, dive, turn and generally soar through the air. In the How to Train Your Dragon Arena Spectacular, Toothless will be able to fly around the arena space and not be restricted to one place as shown in this test. It’s pretty impressive to see a life sized dragon actually flying. I’d say it was a successful test! Now where do I sign up to go for a ride? (Note that this video has no sound.)
