The final chapter in DreamWorks’ Dragon trilogy is a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown, and how nothing can ever train you to let go.
Now village chief and ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, Hiccup has created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia. But when faced with the darkest of threats to their peaceful village, Hiccup and Toothless must journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. As their true destines are revealed, dragon and rider must fight together to the very ends of the Earth to protect everything they’ve grown to love and treasure.
Back on voice duty are Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill with F Murray Abraham bringing fresh talent as the villainous, dragon-hating Grimmel.
A fantastic, visually stunning and poignant way to end this beloved series. While the young characters remain joyously funny, this finale also adds mature notes to their story of friendship. The franchise has, like its audience, grown up, and to that end this film grapples with more complex themes than before, making for a truly satisfying yet bittersweet conclusion.
