Four years after Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended Toothless, the dragon, the duo (now inseparable) embarks on new trips of discovery. However, disturbing their idyllic setting and peace of the land is a mighty dragon trapper with vicious intentions. Can the dragon riders rescue dragons from the clutches of the mighty villain who wishes to form a dragon army for his own good?
: How to train your Dragon 2 should be studied by filmmakers to learn 'how to make a sequel'. For a change, it is not just a rehash or remake of the 2010 Oscar-nominated film. While keeping the spirit, titular characters and visual excellence of the previous installment intact, a new story, characters and plot twists are introduced to lend novelty to the proceedings. The makers manage to keep the high-flying action and pace impressively consistent. Not once do the scenes get sluggish. The 3D animation breathes life into the story, without overpowering it.
The film respects the intellect of its audiences, probably more than the live-action ones do. It gives valuable life lessons without sounding preachy. This ensures its universal appeal and cinematic excellence. Be it kids or adults, HTTYD2's breathtaking imagery, paired with a perfect blend of humour and drama, leave you spellbound.
What stands out in the film, other than great visuals, emotional connect and a heart-melting plot, are the surprise elements. You are kept guessing throughout, which adds to the excitement. The cuteness quotient of fun-loving Toothless and peace-loving Hiccup goes up a few notches. The latter even dons a flying suit now and the opening scenes are a sheer delight to watch. Hiccup is no more the clumsy kid he used to be and Toothless is up for a real challenge. This is their coming of age story, magnificently told.
The voice-over cast led by Jay Baruchel and Gerard Butler are terrific and so is the new addition, Cate Blanchett.
Love, longing, tears, everlasting friendship...to watch the film in 3D is to live it. The dragons give you wings! They fly, you fly.
Director Dean DeBlois agreed to directing this film, a sequel to How to Train Your Dragon, provided he could turn it into a trilogy.
Director Dean DeBlois had already approached Cate Blanchett in 2011 only during the awards seasons as he had kept her in my mind while writing the character of Valka.
The film will move five years forward where Hiccup and his friends will be shown as young adults.
It was also announced that the entire original voice cast would return for the sequel.
The script is really good and is has a lot of dramatic depth. This movie is for everyone. Adults and Kids will enjoy it equally and will love it at the end,,congrats to the filmmakers - you''ve made a masterpiece and you made me feel like a kid again. thank you..
how to train your dragon is always a wonderful movie..
