VOICES Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig

With a great cast, wonderful animation and witty dialogue, there’s something for all the family here in the conclusion to this magical trilogy.

The third film in the hugely popular animated series sees newly-appointed Viking chief Hiccup seeking to create a utopia where humans and dragons can coexist in peace. But then his faithful dragon companion, Toothless, finds love, an evil dragon hunter shows up and there are difficult choices to be made. A truly enjoyable family film, with terrific animation, witty dialogue and an emotionally satisfying ending for the trilogy.
(2019 USA 104 mins)

From its inception, this series has insisted on a widescreen style different from that of other animated features, attempting to map the live-action idea of “magic hour” onto virtual landscapes and stylized human figures. Here, the visuals outdo anything we’ve seen before, to such a degree that we might almost overlook the subtler innovations in the character animation: the nuances of expression on both the human and reptilian faces, and the wonderful nonverbal tactics the artists use to convey emotional intricacies neither Hiccup nor Toothless has had to communicate before, all of which pays off in an unforgettable final scene.  Peter Debrudge, Variety
