As far as dragon movies go, the big fuss lately has been over the second installment of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy. I can’t comment on that movie, since I haven’t been to see it yet (Will I? Still not sure–I wasn’t a big fan of the first one, though I love the book). As Christmas gets closer, there’s another dragon movie that’s stirring up excitement: the sequel to Dreamworks’ popular How to Train Your Dragon.
I’m usually of the opinion that sequels aren’t great movies, especially sequels to animated films. How to Train Your Dragon was an adorable movie, and I was hoping they wouldn’t ruin it by trying to add on to a good thing. I watched the trailer for the sequel for the first time this morning. The second movie, which will hit theaters in June, has actually piqued my interest. Like most trailers, it says very little about what the movie will actually be about, but it contained nothing that turned me away, and quite a few cute dragons that drew me in. I’ll probably be watching How to Train Your Dragon 2 when it comes out, and will watch future trailers with interest.
