Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, How to Train your Dragon is an engaging story about a boy called Hiccup who struggles to fit in with his tribe of viking dragon-slayers. He meets a a dragon who challenges him to think differently about dragons and see the world from a new point of view.
Rotten Tomatoes rates How to Train your Dragon at a whopping 91%. Always a good sign to be high on the tomatometer! Watching the trailer, it was definitely more reminiscent of Harry Potter flying on the hippogriff as opposed to Eragon flying on his dragon. I can see this film as one of those feel-good, triumphant, fist-pump kind of movies. I’m looking forward to seeing it.
The film opens on Friday March 26th 2010.
