This 3rd film in the Dragon saga, directed by Dean DeBlois, is a fitting end to the beloved series.
After the death of his father, Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is now a grown Viking and trying to live up to his dad’s legacy as Chief of Berk. The Island has become overpopulated with Dragons since Hiccup and his fellow Vikings have been saving them over the past years.
He had heard of a peaceful place from his father, called the Hidden World, where the Dragons could call home. However, a Dragon-killer named Grimmel (F. Murray Abraham) is looking for the sanctuary also, and devises a plan to trick Hiccup and his Night Fury into finding it for him.
Toothless, a Fury that Hiccup had saved years before, discovers another Fury, and enters into a sweet flirtation with her She plays hard to get and is shy, but he is not deterred. Astrid (America Ferrera) and Hiccup watch the blossoming romance as they contemplate whether or not they should get married.
The trip to the Hidden World is really exciting. Flying up through the clouds that are awash in light streaming through the cracks is beautiful, but it doesn’t compare to the breathtaking colors and visuals that make up the Hidden World. With magnificent, powerful waterfalls and strange, new vegetation, it’s a sight to behold.
What moviegoer doesn’t like an animated film about Vikings and Dragons! There are great songs, exciting fight scenes, terrific characters and a story that pulls you in emotionally.
This is one fantasy I did not want to end.
