p>Ella Watts from Orphans podcast, BBC Sounds, and Becky Brynolf from And Then What podcast return to Flixwatcher to review Ella’s choice How to Train Your Dragon.
How to Train Your Dragon is a 2010 animated fantasy loosely based on the book of the same name by Cressida Powell, directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, and produced by DreamWorks (and it’s also Ella’s favorite film).
Set in Viking times, Hiccup is an aspiring but failing Viking and keen to follow tradition by slaying dragon. By chance, he manages to trap the rarest (and dangerous) dragon the Night Fury (Toothless) but realizes that he can’t kill it and befriends it instead. Essentially How to Train Your Dragon is a film about the unknown and your fears but also learning to accept differences and with the main character with a physical disability.
How to Train Your Dragon is a charming film that is universally appealing (not just for kids) that benefits from an emotive score and some of the best DreamWorks animations to date. How to Train Your Dragon scores generously across all the Flixwatcher categories but let down only by the small screen score - do catch it on the big screen where you can- and scores 3.91 overall.
