How to Train Your Dragon 2 – How to Train Your Dragon 2 is the much-anticipated sequel to How to Train Your Dragon and takes place five years after the first movie. Everyone has matured and Hiccup is being pressured into becoming the new Chief of Burk. When they find that there is a new dragon threat, they also find that Hiccup’s mother isn’t dead and is a dragon trainer herself. The story however is completely original from the books and I’m not sure if the movie has any real connection to the TV series that has been airing on Cartoon Network. We quite liked How to Train Your Dragon 2 and you can read our review of it here. Stars Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Djimon Hounsou, America Ferrera, Kit Harington, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, and Kristen Wiig. Rated PG.
