Hiccup is a Viking teenager who aspires to hunt dragons, but doesn't exactly fit in with his tribe's longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. His world gets turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view. Bonus features include: Legend of the BoneKnapper Dragon, trailers, featurettes, deleted scenes, commentary, and more.

I LOVED this movie! In many ways I saw my cats behaviours which really helped for me to relate to toothless and bond with the character.

This is my all-time favorite movie! When I first saw it, I was going through a hard time. I saw myself as Hiccup in the film and really related to him and his outsider situation. Thank you DreamWorks!! :D

Toothless is so CUTE! I've watched this movie so many times I at one time had most of the lines memorized. HTTYD is on my top ten favorite movie list! Also T J Miller does Tuff Nut's voice. I have read about 10 minutes worth of one of the books, it was dreary. The awesome thing about this movie is it leaves a ton of story left to be told by Defenders and Riders of Berk, and Race to the Edge. Both all three of those series are awesome and hilarious, and if there are some Race to the Edge DVDs out there, I suggest the Library pick up some copies, they would be extremely popular. Personally like Skrills the most.

A young boy named Hiccup aspires to be a dragon killer. As the name suggests, dragon killers fight dragons. During an invasion that occurs one day, Hiccup sets out by himself to go take down some dragons. He shoots something down from the sky, and later goes to look for it in the woods. He finds a rare dragon which he intends to kill. However, he has a change of heart and decides not to kill it. A close friendship blossoms between him and the dragon, which he names Toothless. Perhaps Hiccup can help the Vikings and dragons end their fighting and become friends like Toothless and himself.

How to Train your Dragon is definitely one of my favourite movies. The story is centered around a teenager from the island of Berk named Hiccup, he aspires to join the rest of the vikings to fight against the dragons that continuously assault his village. However his father, Stoik the village leader, would not allow his small and weak son to hunt dragons with them. Regardless of his father's opinions, Hiccup uses his invention and manages to catch a Nightfury one night during the dragon's invasion. Hiccup successfully brought the dragon down but he couldn't bring himself to kill it. Instead he brings the Nightfury home and names him Toothless. How to Train your Dragon also has amazing animation, I would recommend you to give this movie a watch!

This movie is so much fun! Good family movie with a familiar plot. True, the movie is almost nothing like the book. The character names are the same but just about every thing else is completely different. I liked the book. I loved the movie. Usually for me it's the other way around.

HICCUP: (in a surprisingly good Stoick impersonation)
"Excuse me, barmaid! I'm afraid you've brought me the wrong offspring! I ordered an extra-large boy with beefy arms! Extra guts and glory on the side! This here! This is a talking fishbone!"

Hiccup a young viking who is less than viking-like wants to fit in with the village so he sets out to hunt and capture the deadliest dragon known to man.

He later realizes that it's his difference that make him special and great.

Also, the dragons behave like cats. This resulted in feelings of disappointment toward my tiny, wingless cat. I know it's not her fault but it would be great if she just started flying or something.
