Here is an animation that no one saw coming. This Dreamworks loosely based adaptation of a book of the same name by Cressida Cowell, was a stunner and it was nominated for the Best Animation award at the Academy Awards, but lost to Toy Story 3 (2010).

What makes this animation so good, is the way the screenplay writers decided to craft our journey. We get to see the lead young lad, Hiccup try to tame a dragon. The comedy in his trials and the brains that comes with him makes his life a fun watch and the animation all so memorable.
Being a critical and commercial success, this movie birth two other sequels [How To Train Your Dragon 2 (2010) and How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019)] to complete a trilogy.

Hiccup is a Viking and his father is the chief of his home town, Berk. The village is attacked regularly by dragons who raid the village capture livestock and destroy buildings. The people of the town of Berk are dragon hunters and Hiccup is not allowed to join in the hunt, because in consideration of his build in comparison to the other men, he has fallen short.

Hiccup is a blacksmith apprentice and he uses this opportunity to create machines that he wants to use to catch dragons and kill them. He one day did shoot down a Night Fury, but nobody believed he did. He decided to go look for it and found the creature trapped, instead of killing the dragon, Hiccup sets it free, as he could not bring himself to kill.

The next time Hiccup returns to the place where he set the Night Fury free he sees that the dragon is still there, he during his attack on it tore the dragon’s tail fin, the dragon is now unable to fly. Hiccup designed a prosthetic fin which works with him in control, mounting the dragon.

The chief puts Hiccup to the test to fight and kill a dragon with everyone watching, Hiccup was able to subdue the dragon without any violence trying to prove that dragons are peaceful creatures. His father was not having it and that ladies and gentlemen is when the animation takes wing and flies. To know what happens next you have to take the time out to go see this movie and I beg you see the whole trilogy, they are worth owning.
