It has come to my attention that people who weren’t in the fandom when HTTYD2 came out may not know about Alexander Rybak.
Now, some of you may know this guy as the winner of Euro Vision 2010. (Or however you write/spell it.)
But, if you weren’t on tumblr, and part of the How To Train Your Dragon fandom, back in 2014, you may not be aware that he’s also Hiccup’s Norwegian voice. Yup. This is the guy who voice’s Hiccup in the language he would have actually spoken.
Not only this, but, for the second movie, he wrote the INCREDIBLE song Into A Fantasy. Okay. It’s not as gorgeous or awesome as Where No One Goes. But what is? It’s still a beautiful song, and it’s perfect for Hiccup and Toothless.

Hopefully that works… I’ve never embedded a video in a post before. If not, here’s a link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiVWvrt6jKw
Now. Why am I bringing this up?
The other day at work, one of Alexander Rybak songs came up on my iPod (I’m a dishwasher, so I’m allowed to listen to music in the back). And I suddenly remembered the fact he’s Hiccup’s voice. And he’s an incredible singer.
I felt it was important to bring this up, after the musical episode on Race to the Edge.
That’s all. Enjoy the music.
