Characters – These are the same Vikings and dragons that your kids have been raving about ever since they saw ‘How to Train Your Dragon’, so you really don’t need to hesitate before buying them tickets to spend two more hours with their animated heroes. Hiccup, Toothless, Astrid, Stormfly and the rest of the gang are back, all five years older than they were in the first movie. While the characters have become more mature and have new struggles in HTTYD 2, they still retain the heart and soul of their previous selves, ensuring an instant reconnection with their fans.

Dragons – These magnificent, winged, fire-breathing beasts have always fascinated their audiences, and ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ lets you explore the dragon world like never before. Many new species are introduced, with every Viking on Berk having their own dragon pet. Further, a secret dragon sanctuary and a mysterious dragon expert are presented in the movie, introducing Hiccup to hundreds of new dragon species and many dragon secrets. It will be interesting to see how many of the new dragons and settings will make it to DreamWorks’ related video games, like ‘School of Dragons.’

Animation – DreamWorks has used the latest advancements in animation technology to make the characters and settings look as realistic as possible. The flight sequences are reportedly spectacular, giving audiences a feel of what it would be like to soar through the skies on the back of a dragon.

Dragon racing tournaments, a full-scale war and a giant dragon battle look all the more impressive with the superior 3D effects. One more reason you must catch this movie on the big screen, in 3D.

Rave reviews – Your child’s favorite characters, impressive new dragons and mind-blowing animation are all good when you’re looking for a family entertainer, but what you really want to know is how well it all comes together. ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ has already been screened at a few film festivals so far, and the critics can’t stop saying good things about the movie! Director Dean DeBlois has impressed audiences with the way the movie is able to stand on its own feet and tell a story that is linked to, yet independent of the original. The movie takes the story forward with confidence, with grown-up characters, new locations and problems that extend beyond life on Berk. While a lot of fans have been wondering whether the sequel could live up to the high expectations set by the original movie, some reviewers feel that HTTYD 2 is actually better than the first film! With the movie predicted to be a ‘mega box office hit’ and ‘the biggest blockbuster of the summer,’ this is one summer flick you really don’t want to miss!
