"They’re 5 years in, so the butterflies are gone. It’s nice to see a comfortable relationship where affectionate little touches or the way they sit together, has a comfort level to it and support. Astrid is the type of character that is not going to be afraid to call Hiccup on his nonsense, to be the reason when he is too absorbed in his own indecision. I think that’s really great. If anything…Astrid is saving Hiccup in this movie instead of the other way around."
