[Movie Preview] How to Train Your Dragon 2

In 2010, we saw one of the really good animated films in How to Train Your Dragon. I walked away from that movie really wanting to have my own dragon and how awesome it would have been to fly around with it. Well, Dreamworks is back with more Hiccup and Toothless Dragon action.

What made the first one so special at least for me was the fact that I knew nothing about it going in. It was also so great how each of the characters were built up. It was great how the scrawny little Hiccup evolved from being a coward to leading his crew to (*spoiler*) beat the giant dragon. It was also great to see how the relationship between Hiccup and his newfound friend, Toothless, progressed from being hostile to becoming best of friends.


It’s going to be quite a challenge to top the first movie as with all sequels. This movie in particular since they already told the story of, well, how to train your dragon. I’m still hopeful that they can tell a good tale. The trailer didn’t really inspire a lot of confidence and it feels like it’s going to suck, but I would love to be wrong.

Reading about the initial plot, it’s been 5 years since the first movie and the duo of Hiccup and Toothless are out for more adventures. I will keep my expectations low and in check for the meantime until they can reveal a trailer that shows a bit more. But for now, you can see the teaser trailer.
