Paired with the first one, this is turning out to become one of my favorite animated movie series. How To Train Your Dragon 2 is simply gorgeous to look at. The cinematography, the detail in the scenes, and the sense of scale all make for a fantastic movie-watching experience.
The story, and the drama, seem to be a little much. There’s a lot packed into this movie. And, while I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing, it transforms this from simply an animated family film to bordering on an epic.
It will be interesting to see how they finish the trilogy.
