Based on the novel series, How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
Directed and Written by Dean DeBlois
Produced by Bonnie Arnold and Brad Lewis
Starring: Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, and F. Murray Abraham.
Synopsis: (read it only if you have watched the first two)
It follows Hiccup seeking a dragon utopia called “The Hidden World” while coming to terms with Toothless’ new bond with a female Light Fury.
It feels like a train ran over me.
So many feels. I don’t even know where to start. What more to say other than awesome?!
The poster shows two dragons, one white and the other black who is Toothless. So, of course, we knew there’s something going to happen there. It’s obvious.
But the movie didn’t just focus on the romance, they had us going ‘wow,’ and then we had some ‘aww’ and ‘haha’ moments. A balance which I like. The plot had action and a touch of romance which I enjoyed watching. Slow romance. They kept it rounded. Though there is still a lot of action scenes, that didn’t stray the viewers away from the main plot. It was kept to a minimum. Enough to make you gasp, cry, and want more.
I love it when Ruffnut and Tuffnut talk in their humorous way; the reason why we love her and her twin brother so much. I love the world building. Even though it was only a few seconds, they were able to show the viewers a constructive, layered hidden world. Kudos to the crew. I also love watching the friendship between Hiccup and Toothless grow stronger. Especially, the ending which killed me, in a good way at least. It was epic and at the same time tears of joy sprung out. I love all the characters to bits and I am going to miss them.
All in all, I rate this 10/10. If you love dragons and strong bonds, I highly recommend this trilogy.
