Gobber, the tough Viking in mythical Berk village, comes out as gay in the much-anticipated Dragon sequel. Gobber the Belch (voiced by Craig Ferguson) is a six-and-a-half foot tall madman who is tasked with training teens in various skills needed to become a Viking: catching and training dragons, pirating skills, sword-fighting, and rudery. He has trained many students that became great warriors, being a capable warrior himself.
Dragon 2‘s openly gay writer and director, Dean DeBlois, confirms Gobber’s sexuality.
It’s been five years since dragons and vikings were successfully united on the island of Berk. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is rated PG, and opens in theaters on June 13.
