The third film in the popular Dragon tamer series. It's just more of the same really, a film made because it was ensured a big audience, regardless of its quality. I didn't care much for the first two films, this didn't add anything new or substantial to the franchise, but I didn't really expect it to either.

Hiccup is well on his way to building his own dragon utopia, but when word gets out about his village, some shady people start planning to take advantage. Meanwhile, Toothless has found a partner that may save his species. Hiccup plans to move his dragon utopia to a new location, but that is easier said than done.

The animation is technically proficient, but three years after its release that doesn't amount to much. The aesthetic is horrible, the comedy is painfully unfunny and the dub is terrible. I'm glad they laid the series to rest after this third part, it's just empty, boring, and unimaginative pulp.
