Based On: 
How to train your dragon by Cressida Cowell (Baught this book yesterday so Look out for a review some time in the future!)

How to train your dragon has always been my favorite animation so when the sequel was released I was desperate to see it in the cinema. I went with my brother, his best friend and his friend’s sister and it was a great afternoon out! This film was exciting and as always Toothless is just the cutest thing ever and it made me really want to have my own nightfury! I loved the beautiful animation with HD detail and the characters were just as lovable as they were in the first film. Sometimes with an animation sequel it is not as good as the first film and the plot becomes a little depleted but there was no sign of that in this film. The plot was set a few years in the future and was completely original. Hiccup got to meet his mother and Toothless became the Alpha dragon! With pretty blue glowing bits all over his body! There were lots of new and exciting dragons in this film with superb world building. Hiccup had to learn to face up to his responsibility of taking over his dad as chief, a very heartfelt part of the plot as you could feel his desire to explore and go on adventures in exchange for staying in Berk and dealing with the public. One part of the film was extremely sad however and nearly had me crying in public! It was such a shock and a death that is so rarely seen in children’s animations. It was a heroric death however and it was lovely to see how it made the characters stronger and more capable of fighting! The love story between Hiccup’s parents was beautiful and really sweet! It was nice to see the caring side of the tough viking! 


[Astrid to Hiccup] “Where have YOU been?” [Hiccup] “Oh you know. Catching up with mom.” [Hiccup looks up. Astrid follows hos gaze and sees Valka on Clodjumper summoning her bewilderbeast] [Astrid] “THAT’S you MOTHER?” [Hiccup smiles] “well, now you know where I get my dramatic flair!” [He Flies off on Toothless]

[Hiccup draws a new spot on his map] “So, what should we name it?” [Toothless scratches his arm with his snout] [Hiccup] “Itchy Armpit it is.”
