When Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. (IMDb)
The first one was such a pleasant surprise, I had to see the second one. And it didn’t disappoint. It’s every bit as fun, adorable, and a little heart wrenching as the first one, maybe even more so. I really liked that it took place a couple of years (five I think) after the first one. You got to see how these characters have grown and also how the whole world has changed since we last saw them, The animation is absolutely gorgeous, and extremely detailed. Especially with the dragons. They don’t speak, but they are every much a character as the humans. They’re so expressive, which is why we like them so much. They also provide some of the funnier moments of the movie. What this one did well was balance that light-heartedness with some more emotional moments. I teared up, I’ll admit it. And I’m pretty sure some of the friends I saw it with did too. Overall, I thought this was great, and if the rumors of a trilogy are true, I would totally be in on seeing it.
