Product Description How To Train Your Dragon A winner with audiences and critics alike, DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon rolls fire-breathing action, epic adventure and laughs into a captivating and original story. Hiccup is a young Viking who defies tradition when he befriends one of his deadliest foes – a ferocious dragon he calls Toothless. Together, the unlikely heroes must fight against all odds to save both their worlds in this “wonderful good-time hit!” (Gene Shalit, Today). Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon Hiccup and the Viking gang are back to battle Gobber’s archenemy – the legendary BoneKnapper dragon – in this full-“scale” action-adventure. Shipwrecked on a mysterious island, the courageous kids devise a plan to capture the cagey creatures…if he even exists! (replaced) A winning mixture of adventure, slapstick comedy, and friendship, How to Train Your Dragon rivals Kung Fu Panda as the most engaging and satisfying film DreamWorks Animation has produced. Hiccup (voice by Jay Baruchel) is a failure as a Viking: skinny, inquisitive, and inventive, he asks questions and tries out unsuccessful contraptions when he's supposed to be fighting the dragons that attack his village. His father, chief Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), has pretty much given up on his teenage son and apprenticed him to blacksmith Gobber (Craig Ferguson). Worse, Hiccup knows the village loser hasn't a chance of impressing Astrid (America Ferrera), the girl of his dreams and a formidable dragon fighter in her own right. When one of Hiccup's inventions actually works, he hasn't the heart to kill the young dragon he's brought down. He names it Toothless and befriends it, although he's been taught to fear and loathe dragons. Codirectors and cowriters Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, who made Disney's delightful Lilo and Stitch, provide plenty of action, including vertiginous flying sequences, but they balance the pyrotechnics with moments of genuine warmth that make the viewer root for Hiccup's success. Many DreamWorks films get laughs from sitcom one-liners and topical pop culture references; as the humor in Dragon comes from the characters' personalities, it feels less timely and more timeless. Toothless chases the spot of sunlight reflected off Hiccup's hammer like a giant cat with a laser pointer; Hiccup uses his newly found knowledge (and an icky smoked eel) to defeat two small dragons--and impress the other kids. How to Train Your Dragon will be just as enjoyable 10 or 20 years from now as it is today. (Rated PG: suitable for ages 8 and older, violence, some intense action and scary dragons) --Charles Solomon Additional Features Happily, the flying sequences in How to Train Your Dragon that looked so glorious on the big screen in 3-D lose very little of their majesty on the small screen in Blu-ray. The most interesting of the many extras is the documentary "The Story Behind the Story." Dragon directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois took minicams around the studio, sometimes leaving them on unobtrusively during meetings and discussions. The result is an unusually candid look at the process of making an animated feature. The new short "Legend of the Bonekeeper Dragon" cleverly juxtaposes stylized 2-D animation of Gobber's memories with the CG characters, but the animation isn't as fluid as it is in the feature. A couple of fairly standard making-of pieces about the cast and crew and the promotional spots that aired during the Winter Olympics round out the package. Fans of the film will be pleased (but not surprised) to learn that Hiccup and Toothless remain as charming on video as they were in theaters. --Charles Solomon
