trailer break: ‘How to Train Your Dragon’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…


How to Train Your Dragon is my favorite title of 2010 (so far, anyway), but this isn’t quite the movie I was expecting to go along with it. I didn’t expect that the dragons would be mostly “bad” — I thought it might be more like National Velvet or Black Beauty, with dragons instead of horses. Still, this looks kinda cute. I like that the baby dragon looks like Stitch… which isn’t surprising, I suppose, since writer-directors Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders also gave us Lilo & Stitch.

Apparently some fans of the children’s book this is based on — by Cressida Cowell [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada] [Amazon U.K.] — don’t like that the movie takes liberties with the source material. This is a shocking development that warrants a full investigation…

How to Train Your Dragon opens in limited release in the U.S. and Canada on March 26, and in the U.K. on March 31.

  • Many fans of the audio book version of this and Ms. Cowell’s sequels don’t like that the movie doesn’t use David Tennant’s voice(s) since he reads them so marvelously. His voices for the characters are so firmly and happily set in our heads that this movie’s going to have to be amazingly wonderful to even get a look-in.

    If you aren’t a DT fan, though, go, enjoy!
