SET in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, this action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers.

 

Hiccup lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. The teen’s smarts and offbeat sense of humour don’t sit too well with his tribe or its chief… who just happens to be Hiccup’s father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he encounters (and ultimately befriends) an injured dragon, his world is flipped upside down, and what started out as Hiccup’s one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.

This cute film is brought to us by the brilliant team who offered us such treats as Shrek and Madagascar and is directed by Christopher Sanders and Dean DeBlois. It is an action packed movie which is sure to delight the kids and not disappoint their parents either, especially if seen in the 3-D version which really offers a spectacular show of how animation has developed. It has been rated PG because it includes sequences of intense action and some scary images, and brief mild language. It includes the voice talents of Jay Baruchel as Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, Gerard Butler as Stoick the Vast, America Ferrera as Astrid, Jonah Hill as Snotlout, Craig Ferguson as Gobber, Kristen Wiig as Ruffnut and TJ Miller as Tuffnut.
