Viking child Hiccup (voiced by Baruchel) has been told his whole life that dragons are evil and he grows up dreaming of the day he can stand alongside his father, tribe leader Stoick (Gerard Butler), and slay a ferocious beast.

Unfortunately, Hiccup is hardly warrior material and his father entrusts the youngster to burly blacksmith Gobber (Craig Ferguson), for training.

Meanwhile, Hiccup has befriended an injured dragon, nursed the creature back to health and even nicknamed him Toothless.

As the bond between animal and boy deepens, Hiccup questions everything he has been told. How To Train Your Dragon is a brilliantly executed and deeply touching story of one boy’s friendship with the supposed enemy.
