From DreamWorks Animation comes a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown… and how nothing can ever train you to let go. What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic trilogy spanning their lives. When the sudden appearance of a female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. In this last chapter, Hiccup and Toothless will finally discover their true destinies, and dragon and rider will fight together to protect everything they’ve grown to treasure.
I honestly loved this movie a lot more than I expected to! I have always enjoyed the How To Train Your Dragon movies but for some reason, I absolutely fell in love with this one the most. Seeing the bond between Toothless and Hiccup evolve throughout the movies has been one of my favorite things about the series. Toothless also meets one of his own species for the first time and completely falls for her. However, she couldn’t be bothered for most of the movie. My kids and I enjoyed the scene on the beach with the two of them doing a little mating dance. However, my favorite part of the movie has to be the battle near the end of the movie. Hiccup has always been thought of as the underdog but to see him persevere to save Toothless, his girlfriend, and the other dragons was amazing to watch. Now, I have never been a big crier when it comes to movies but this one got me. I was a blubbering mess by the end of the movie!
I feel like this installment was great for both kids and parents to enjoy!
