About the Movie “How to Train Your Dragon”

One of DreamWorks Animation’s biggest hits was based on the book “How to Train Your Dragon” by Cressida Cowell, set in a world of Vikings and wild dragons. The protagonist is the teenage Hiccup, the son of the chief, living on the island of Berk, where dragon fights are a daily occurrence. His initiation is approaching, and it’s his only chance to prove his worth to the tribe and his father. However, when he befriends a dragon instead of training it, his whole world turns upside down.

The three animated films in the “How to Train Your Dragon” series earned over $1.6 billion worldwide at the box office. Additionally, they spawned three TV spin-offs: “Dragons: Riders of Berk,” “Dragons: Race to the Edge,” and “Dragons: Rescue Riders.” The franchise also led to various theme park attractions around the world.
