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.
