“How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” is the beautiful ending we needed for the “How to Train Your Dragon” trilogy and the movie was directed by Dean DeBlois and it stars Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera and F. Murray Abraham.
The first film was released in 2010 and took the world on a flight into the lives of the Vikings of Berk, who had a little bit of a dragon problem. Hiccup, the chief’s son, takes down a night fury, one of the most feared dragons, who Hiccup later names Toothless, and successfully traps it, but he decides to let the dragon go. This began a trusting friendship between the unique duo which lasts through the second movie as well. “How to Train Your Dragon 2” it follows the duo as they create a stronger bond and fight to protect the dragons and the Vikings of Berk as well.
“The Hidden World” is about knowing that to protect the ones you love, you may have to make some sacrifices. Hiccup and Toothless, are still the best of friends, but Toothless has found another night fury that is pure white, a light fury if you will. Toothless becomes obsessed with earning the affection of the light fury and starts distancing himself from Hiccup. Toothless begins leaving for long periods of time with the light fury and this is terrible because there is a night fury hunter who wiped out the race on the hunt for Toothless and the light fury.
This trilogy has always produced beautiful and colorful scenes with bright unusual colors, or mountains and waterfalls, that make you wish you could see those sights in real life, but this film has the most beautiful scenes of all. There is a scene in this movie with so many bright and colorful lights shining through a dark background and that I wished I could just jump through the screen to see it myself. The animation is so detailed and well done that each strand of hair was detailed and every scale on the dragons were animated in.
This film is hilarious and has plenty of humor for both children and adults and the movie was emotional as well. There were scenes so funny that I couldn’t hold back a laugh and some scenes that were sad enough to make me cry. The change in emotional scenes truly makes it a great movie. The movie has an impactful message of “If you love them, let them go,” and the last 15 minutes of the movie are the most touching and emotional part of the movie, and I recommend seeing the movie if only for the last scenes.
