How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World [Movie Review]

How can I not watch this movie as I have loved the first two (the first was released in 2010 and four years later, the second followed)?

And after reading raving reviews online, it got me super excited and watched it on the very first day of the Chinese New Year.

The movie started with the group led by Hiccup on a mission of saving the captured dragons and bring them back to Berk where dragons and humans live together. As dragons are huge animals, the village is soon overpopulated and cramped with its residents. The situation leads to Hiccup desires to find the 'Hidden World', a myth of a place where dragons live that his late father had told him when he was a little boy. 

Meanwhile, an infamous dragon hunter/ slayer, Grimmel was given the order to capture Toothless so that the warlords could use him as an alpha to control other dragons. Grimmel uses a white night fury to bait Toothless.

When Toothless found the white night fury in the wood, the two quickly become enchanted with each other but the white night furry still does not trust human. Grimmel later visits Hiccup, who has already prepared a trap to capture Grimmel. It turns out that Grimmel has also prepared an ambush and manges to burn down Hiccup's house and most of Berk in the process. 

After the attack, Hiccup decides that it is time for the village to move out and look for the 'Hidden World'. Reluctantly, the villagers follow Hiccup's instructions.

Mid-way, the Berkians discover an island which they later decide to settle on, as the 'Hidden World' is just a mere myth. Hiccup builds an automatic tail for Toothless to enable him to fly alone. Once completed, Toothless flies away to look for the white night fury, which they later call as Light Fury. The duo meets and together fly to an unknown land.

Hiccup's mother, Valka notices that the Grimmel's army is fast approaching to their newly discovered land while doing her scouting and quickly informs Hiccup. Together with his army of friends and dragons, Hiccup attacks the army, only to fall into Grimmel's trap. The army manages to escape the trap, but Ruffnut is captured. Irritated with Ruffnut's non-stop complaining, Grimmel let her go and secretly follow her to the new land. 

Hiccup and Astrid fly in search for toothless and find the 'Hidden World'. Soon, they discover Toothless and the Light Fury in the depth of the world, leading a whole lot of dragons of different sizes as alpha and its mate. Accidentally discovered by a dragon, the duo tries to run for their safety and Toothless come to aid them and bring them back to the new Berk. Realising that the human and the dragons cannot co-live in the Hidden World, Hiccup lets Toothless go as Toothless seems missing the Light Fury, only to realise that the Light Fury follows them to Berk. 

Suddenly, Grimmel appears and captures both Toothless and the Light Fury. As the other dragons try to save the duo, Grimmel threatens to kill the Light Fury if any of the other dragons attack.

Will Toothless be able to save his friend and the newly found love?
Will the humans and the dragons be able to live together in the Hidden World?

Plot: 4.9/ 5.0 For those who have not watch the first two (how could you?), do not worry as you will be able to understand this movie as it is. And please prepare tissues too. It is VERY GOOD with all elements of fun, funny, friendship and sad all rolled marvellously into one. And I want a dragon pet too, please.

Cast: 4.9/ 5.0 No complain here. Thumbs up.

Will I watch it again: YES! I wanna watch it in 3D next.
