Alright, I’ll try to send a more “balanced” view on the new clip (seeing how people are pretty much hating it already).
To be fair, if those were ACTUAL fairies, I’d be done with RTTE as well. But they’re not. And I’d honestly be surprised if they were! It’s not like RTTE writers live in a cave.
So: they do not have actual wings. They are being lifted by Razorwhip babies.
And ye: probably an upopular opinion: am I the only one who thinks it’s a cool idea? This alternative to riding a dragon?
(And howcome no one is commenting on the fact the three RTTE-girls are finally on a mission together? Isn’t that what you wanted? :D)
Still. I get why people from their gut feeling hate this idea. And I guess it’s because of how this idea was executed -visually-. It looks ridiculous. Like fairies. Nothing I could take serious at my age.
I personally am not fan of the female’s model either. I guess overally, this looks like it could be from Miraculous Ladybug. Which I guess is the bugging thing - it doesn’t quite fit in the HTTYD scheme visually.
Do I hate the design?
Not hate. I just think it’s bad. The opposite of epic.
Do I hate the writers?
Jeez, of course not! They’re still people, guys! And I think they’re doing a decent job. There are some episodes I like less, but hey! RTTE has it’s golden moments :)
Do I think this was a bad idea?
No. As said, it’s just failing on the visual level. Executed poorly. Not for an universal audience. Maybe it worked better if the female didn’t have -Razorwhip- wings (which look VERY similar to fairy wings), or if her overall design were different. Less “girly”, and more buff. (Maybe if it were a guy instead?). If done correctly, this could’ve looked pretty epic!
Do I look forward to RTTE S5?
Yes! Surely :) I’m not hyped, but that has other reasons. I hope RTTE will keep it’s own little charm until HTTYD 3 comes :)
