An entertaining family friendly movie, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World goes full circle and delivers a heartfelt farewell to a beloved trilogy. It gives all its characters great story arcs that work together so wonderfully and ends up creating a fast paced adventure with magnificent dragons!

To begin with, It’s just so satisfying to have a trilogy as entertaining, consistent and adventurous as this. The movie kicks off by properly setting up the antagonist and the plot/subplots in the story and oh does it manage to tie up all ends by the climax. It’s the sense of fulfillment that the characters express and that the story itself reaches that truly makes this movie enjoyable and memorable. ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ follows Hiccup and toothless as they discover the existence of another night furry, while racing to the hidden world before an evil dragon hunter reaches it.

The movie is light hearted, fast paced and full of important messages that never feel forced or out of place. I can even say that it’s an emotional ride that suits viewers of all ages thanks to its witty comedy. It explores themes of guidance, friendship and responsibility while constantly touching on the importance of acceptance in society and peaceful coexistence. All the characters are funny and lovable, and add greatly to the story especially in the most pivotal scenes. Additionally, the strong antagonist helps keep the plot on track.

The minimal dialogue and moments of silence in the movie prove to be its most powerful ones as they create a range of emotional display. It is there that the movie leaves the viewer in awe by presenting its compelling narrative. Above all, the ensemble voice cast are completely hilarious and will surely bring a big smile to each viewers face. You really shouldn’t miss out on this epic movie so make sure to watch this weekend, and trust me you won’t regret it.
