How To Train Your Dragon sounds like a tongue-in-cheek instructional video, but it's one of the top animated movie series released in the last few decades. The designation is a big deal considering fierce competition with Pixar and Disney animated films like The Incredibles 2 and Coco.
Fortunately, this DreamWorks franchise achieved new heights for the studio. Adapted from a series of fantasy children's novels and featuring breathtaking action pieces and stunning visuals, How To Train Your Dragon elicits genuine emotions about a cartoon dragon and his Viking caretaker. While the original film was well-received, the 2014 sequel surpassed all expectations. The February 2019 third installment, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, rounds out the surprisingly moving saga. And if you like this movie, check out our dragon movies list.
