What parents need to know
Parents need to know that How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is the third and final film in DreamWorks Animation's adventure trilogy. It continues the story of Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel), now chief of the peaceful Viking/dragon utopia of Berk, and his Night Fury dragon friend, Toothless. The appearance of a new female "Light Fury" dragon -- a potential mate for Toothless -- leads to the discovery of a hidden dragon world. But when the safety of Hiccup's village and its inhabitants is threatened by a powerful dragon hunter, Hiccup must find a way to fight back and lead his people (and the dragons) to safety. Many of the talented voice cast from the previous two movies return, including America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Kit Harington, and Gerard Butler. The original films had some rude humor and fantasy action sequences that could be too intense for little kids, so expect the same from this threequel. But you can also likely look forward to an exciting adventure story that's full of positive messages and role models and should be fine for big kids and up.
