The movie and all its sequals have been widely popular. So much so, that it prompted a series in itself. How to train your Dragon is a Dreamworks production and a marvelous work of animation and entertainment.
(And while I am at it, I want to say, I wish Dreamworks had done something with the -boy-fishing-on-the-moon as they do sometimes. It would have been cool. I was always a fan of Dreamworks’ moon creativity.)
Since, that is out of the way, let’s come down to the series. The pilot of Season 1 is an amazing 3 part- video describing all kinds of dragons and hereby declaring you as an official dragon training student. I loved it.
There is also an additonal episode: Finding Bonenapper with Gobber. It eventually becomes Gobber’s dragon.
But before you start this series, watch: How to Train Your Dragon (the first movie), Gift of Night Fury (short movie) and Dragon: Riders of Berk (Cartoon Network aired Dreamworks series), exactly in that order. Then comes this and after comes How to train your Dragon 2.
*Spoiler Alert*, coming through!
Dragons: Dawn of the Dragon Racers
This 26 minutes of animated show involves Snoutloud working on a sheep launcher and dragon racing. Everything else that happens in between is exciting, adventurous and most of all, a good laugh. Oh! Hiccup also gets to be an acting chief. He is not as thrilled about it as we are.
E1: The dragon Racers find the Dragon’s Eye while catc
E2: They find the Snow Wraith in search of the Eye’s key with Gothi

E12: Snoutloud’s dragon and his battle: Do watch this one
E13: An episode for dragon evolution: Stinger Dragon
This season’s episode were focusing on new dragon species and two character developments happened: Snoutloud and fishlegs. I wish season 2 explores other characters a little more chemistry between Astrid and Hiccup (as suggested by Heather)
E1: Burk is attacked so Astrid trains a batch of new dragon riders to protect Burk.
E2: Astrid’s dragon is caught by hunters and there goes a rescue mission. There is a lot more that goes on around that (UNEXPECTED). Do watch this and the
E3: Hunter problem continues and alliances change. The severe rescue is successful
E4: This is a Tuffnut story and Ruffnut does every damn thing for her brother. Yess!!! Humor maxima. Watch this on for sure
E5: This is an episode surrounding marriage ceremonies. Hilarious! I will always remember this one.
E6: The twin’s dragon is in debt of Hiccup and pays it back after a hilarious episode.
E7: Heather’s clever plan is revealed to the riders and glacier episode comes back.
E8: A full on encounter between hunters and rider awaits (Astrid character development): Do watch-interesting
E9: Everybody helps the Shocker Dragon on Loki Day. Time for pranks!
E10: Comes the electric dragon and an encounter with the hunger.
E11: The glowing dragon, Flightmayer is the highlight and helper of the episode but a lot happens. Don’t miss this episode!
E12: Face off: Hiccup looses.
Sorry to drop spoilers! This season of Draogons: Race to the Edge brings a new light to the whole drangon hunter angle and an interesting enemy. Heather and Dagger also move in and out of the episodes. Each episode has it’s own standing, character development and small elements that weave the big picture. (Spoiler Alert here…) In the end, Heather and Dagger’s bro-sis relation also comes around. Some of my favourite episodes in this season involve a great character development of Tuffnut and Fishlegs.
Must watch these seasons and more season (3 and 4) coming your way! Tell me, what scene/ season or charcter is your favourite?
