How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
by Ashley Hobley
How To Train Your Dragon is one of the best cinema experiences I have been fortunate to enough to have had. Flying through the skies with Toothless for the first time was a joyous moment that brought a wide grin to my face. There was just a certain magic to that film and How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is proof that that magic is very difficult to recapture.
Set 1 year after the events of How To Train Your Dragon 2, Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is now the chieftain of Berk after his father’s death. He leads his crew of dragon riders on raids of dragon trapping ships, rescuing the dragons and taking them back to Berk, causing overcrowding issues. An alliance of warlords looking to build their own dragon army recruit a renowned Night Fury killer, Grimmel (F. Murray Abraham), to capture Toothless, who as dragon alpha has a hypnotic control over other dragons. Meanwhile, Toothless comes across a Light Fury, a female companion, that he seeks to court.
Let there be no doubt, this is a stunning movie. The animation and art design for these films has gone up another couple of levels. All the dragon riders now sport fireproof armour made from their dragons shed scales which look really cool. The Hidden World mentioned in the title is also a very special sight to see, a real visual treat. Toothless also learns a new ability that is a delight to watch him utilize.
