On Saturday, Jerry went on a Dad/son afternoon with Danny and Mikey and took them to the movie preview of How to Train Your Dragon 2. This is the second adventure of the book series written by Cressida Cowell and is written and directed by Dean DeBlois.
The first movie took you through Hiccup's (Jay Baruchel), a not so trained Viking teenager, on a self discovery adventure of finding and training a wild dragon named Toothless, and leads his village of dragon slayers of Berk to find peace with the dragons who allow them to see their world from a different point of view.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 that takes place 5 years after the first movie that features Hiccup and his friends as young adults. Now that the Vikings have the dragons on their side, they have been able to discover uncharted territories. However, the curious Hiccup and Astrid (America Herrera) decide to go a little farther and find a cave that opens themselves up to a new adventure. They find themselves in the middle of a more wild dragons, a mysterious dragon trainer, and an ensuing larger conflict between humans and dragons.
Jerry is not usually one for animated movies, but he said he actually enjoyed it, and being that he was his boys he was happy to see it with them.
Danny and Mikey really liked it as well. Danny loves dragons so they apparently get an upgrade in powers in this film which he really enjoyed seeing.
Both Mikey and Danny said they definitely liked this sequel better than the first movie. They said there was more adventure, cooler armor, way cooler dragons, a wonderful surprise for Hiccup, some even sad moments, and an ending I won't mention so as not spoil the movie for all of you.
All in all, they recommend everyone to go see it, especially their brother, Christian who didn't get to go with them and who loved the first movie. So it looks like we may be going out to see again ourselves.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is being released this Friday, June 13th at a theater near you.
From my little corner to yours...See at the movies!
