I think How to Train Your Dragon 2 is such an adorable film. It’s so good. It’s even better than the first one, and I thought that film was pretty much perfect.
Full review here: How to Train Your Dragon 2: Twice the Dragons, Twice the Fun.
Toothless is just absolutely adorable. But more than anything, it’s the care that director/writer Dean DeBlois took to putting the story together. He made the world bigger, delved deeper into the characters, and didn’t focus entirely on Hiccup and Toothless. Everyone got a bit of the action and a chance to shine.
It never felt like a sequel for a sequel’s sake. It felt big and complete on its own. It felt whole. I enjoyed it so much.
Really, as animated adventure stories go, it doesn’t get any better than this.
