Grab your popcorn, ‘How To Train Your Dragon Part 2’ is in theaters tomorrow – Friday, June 13th! The family friendly movie shows the dynamic and daring inside world of vikings and dragons.
Last Saturday afternoon, fans filled AMC Loews New York City theaters! The hot summer movie on the agenda? How To Train Your Dragon Part 2!
With two kids in tow, and a really breezy afternoon, I was ready for an adventure. Not only was I going to get the opportunity to see ‘How To Train Your Dragon Part 2’ before it hit the theaters nationwide, but I was also going to host the advanced screening.
Soon as I arrived with my busy 4 year-old son Kannon Ball and his 6 year-old cousin Kingston, we headed upstairs to the screening space! Boy, was it a packed house! The fans were eager to see the second installment of the trilogy! With bags of popcorn and soft drinks, I settled the kids and prepared for the curtains to open!
Speaking to a packed room of moviegoers, I could feel the excitement. From my view, I could see the guests in attendance adjusting their 3-D shades, while munching on their movie goodies!
‘A Must See: How To Train Your Dragon Part 2’
For lovers of fantasy and animation, ‘How To Train Your Dragon Part 2’ offers kids an inside look into the magical world of vikings and beautifully created dragons – oh! and how to train them!
In terms of visuals, can we say award winning? With the 3-D effect, it’s hard not to be drawn into the rich story line:
The thrilling second chapter of the epic “How to Train Your Dragon” trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
The sequel was co-written and co-directed by Dean DeBlois, who took no shorts when it came to bringing the journey of Hiccup and Toothless to life.
The stellar stand out cast includes: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Kristen Wiig, America Ferrera and our favorite Djimon Hounsou!
