55-year-old Gobber is Stoick’s trusted companion and a crude, opinionated friend. Five years ago, he was just a blacksmith in the village, making weapons to kill dragons. Now, he makes saddles to ride them. Dragons can get their teeth fixed by him, too!
Gobber, who has been tasked with creating dragon-friendly devices that make coexisting with the beasts possible, knows firsthand how taxing peace can be.
Grump, Gobber’s fussy, laze-about dragon, seems to echo his owner’s constant sense of being oppressed. Gobber may seem grumpy on the outside, but he is actually the most loyal and generous Viking you’ll ever meet.
Can You Tell if He’s Gay by Looking at Him?
Gobber the Belch, Hiccup’s Viking Mentor and Comic Sidekick Whose Early Belligerent Encounters with Dragons Cost Him an Arm and A Leg, Is Voiced by Craig Ferguson in The How To Train Your Dragon Films.
Gobber, Who Can only Get Around on His Peg Leg and Fight with A Variety of Tools Attached to His Arms, Is Better Suited to Working in The Forge than In the Field. However, He Is Courageous and Loyal, Earning Him a Place of Prominence and Esteem in Berk Society. So, Why Does He Not Have a Wife?
Gobber Admits in The New Sequel that He’ll Never Find a Decent Woman to Settle Down With. This Is the Sequel that Brings Back Hiccup’s Parents. Gobber Mutters, “This Is Why I Never Married. ” as Hiccup’s Father Stoick (Gerard Butler) Has His First Minor Argument with Hiccup’s Mother Valka (Cate Blanchett). This Is Why, and There’s Another.”
Many in Attendance at The Recent Cannes Premiere of Dragon 2 Scoffed at The Remark. Had Gobber lost a Body Part Even More Crucial to His Survival than His Arms and Legs in His Fight Against Dragons? Another Possibility Is that Gobber Is Gay.
The Latter Is Correct. Ferguson Improvised the Line’s Climactic Finish, and Director Dean De Blois Liked It so Much He Kept It In. the “nice Thing that Craig Brought to It” Is that The Hand-Off Line Is so Subtle that Older Viewers Will Have to Think, “did He Just Say What I Think He Said?” Says Director Dean De Blois.
As well as That, You’re Leaving. What I Like Most About [the Film] Is how Casually It Treats the Subject. as A Gay Man, I Try to Keep My Sexual Orientation to Myself. It’s Nice to Be Able to Treat It as A Passing Thought Rather than Something that Causes People to Get so Worked up About it Because It’s Just a Fact of Who I Am and The Way the World Is.
I Think It’s Funny, and It’s Been Well Received in Every Test Screening We’ve Done so Far. Yes, I’m Sure It Will Ruffle the Feathers of A Few People, but You Shouldn’t Fret Over It. Indeed, in The Year 2014. This Idea Is Constantly Depicted in Media Like Movies and Tv Shows. in A Way, This Is the Expected Norm.
That’s Something I Can Take Pride In. It Adds to The Audacious and Forward-Thinking Storytelling of This [proposed] Trilogy.
Para Norman (2012) Starred Casey Affleck as A Gay Dumb Jock Named Mitch, so Gobber Isn’t the First Gay Character in A Mainstream Animated Film. Fox Is Distributing Dragons 2, and While Some Social Conservatives Had Issues with Mitch, the Revelation of Gobber Has Caused Surprisingly Little Uproar.
Since Gobber Is No Longer Imprisoned, Will the Third Movie Finally Give Him the Chance at A Happy Romance? De Blois Claims He Has Not yet Planned out The Future in Great Detail. You Have My Doubts. People Worry that It Will Suddenly Turn Graphic and Off on A Tangent, and That Worries Me. Nothing Like that Will Ever Happen.
