In the animation story, which tells of many powerful adventures we are living with Hickock, where his dream seems to have been achieved in the creation of a peaceful dragon. Perhaps this discovery will create great anger on every side. In this small village, when the danger mounts inside and the Hickup era is taken over as the head of the village, it may be quite different. Both the dragon and the passenger must make new decisions in order to escape the painful reality.
"How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" packs the emotional heft of the dozen or so years it has taken to get this far, tracking the loss of one parent, the discovery of another, and several momentous lessons in bravery and loyalty along the way.
The dialogue is more wise-cracking and knowing, geared to appeal to young teenage boys rather than children. The technical aspects are as good as ever: indeed, the technology advances with each film, so that each looks richer than the last.
All told, by the time How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World nears the end of its Harry Potter-esque closing trajectory, in which Hiccup must learn how to let go, the bittersweet result will have audiences finding it equally hard to say goodbye.
