How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World movie review2010’s How to Train Your Dragon was a fun film about an awkward Viking prince and his unexpected relationship with the most dangerous creature possible: a dragon. An enjoyable coming-of-age tale featuring dragons and Vikings and centered around the awkward relationships between a boy and his father and that same boy’s relationship to his dog (errr… dragon), the movie spawned a sequel, which was even better than the original, and a television show. With How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Dean DeBlois returns to write and direct the final chapter to Hiccup‘s (Jay Baruchel) story (at least for now).

After stepping up for his fallen father at the end of How to Train Your Dragon 2, the third film in the franchise focuses on Hiccup growing into his leadership role while facing a new threat in a deadly dragon hunter named Grimmel (F. Murray Abraham) and Toothless‘ fascination with another dragon (both of which threaten the status quo of Berk which Hiccup has worked so hard to achieve). Believing it’s the best way to save the dragons and his people, Hiccup leads the Vikings on a search for the mythical hidden world where dragons come from and possibly the only place the Vikings and their dragons can live in peace.

Dragons: Race to the Edge - Gone Gustav Gone

The arrival of Gustav (Lucas Grabeel) at Dragon’s Edge puts every one on edge as the 16 year-old seeks out Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) proclaiming his readiness to become a Dragon Rider. The others are far less certain, especially after spending time with the boy who nearly burns down one of huts, spends most of his time creeping Astrid (America Ferrera) out with his boyhood crush, and comes close to losing the Dragon’s Eye while heading out on his own treasure-seeking adventure.
