The American Audience Will Not See By The End Of February How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World But Will It Be Possible By The Australian Spectators The first How to Train Your Dragon 3 reviews have been published on the Internet today. Fortunately, it sounds like critics are starting up after witnessing the last adventure of Hiccup and Toothless. Read some excerpts from their reviews below.
We've already seen a trailer for the new animated sequel, and author / director Dean DeBlois previously set the theme for the final entry in the trilogy. "The overarching theme of the story is letting go or rather the wisdom of letting go," he explained. "Hiccup's identity as a leader and adult rests on his relationship with Toothless. But if Toothless is not there, who is Hiccup? "Now some critics know the answer, and the reviews are in.
Michael Reeves of the Hollywood Reporter Says How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World " Proves as emotionally compliant and artistic as his predecessors of 2010 and 2014, if not even more. "
It turns out that Hiccup is not the only one that has matured in the last few years since we last saw him – including the opulent, computer-generated visuals that have always been a trademark of the franchise. Here, the technology reaches an impressively detailed new level, from rickety stubble on Hiccup's chin to waterfalls to waterfalls and, above all, photorealistic flickering flames, all dipped in the shadows with the help of a visual adviser who has been awarded an Oscar Roger Deakins ( Blade Runner 2049 ).
Peter Debruge of Variety goes one step further: He says the franchise culminates with "one of the greatest character arches the medium [animation] has ever seen":  From the beginning, this series existed on a widescreen Style that was different from other animated elements, trying to capture the live-action idea of the "magic hour" on virtual landscapes and stylized human figures. Here, the visuals outweigh everything we've seen before to such an extent that we could almost miss the more subtle innovations in character animation: the nuances of expression on the human and reptilian faces and the wonderful nonverbal tactics that these artists apply convey emotional Subtleties that neither Hiccup nor Toothless had to communicate before, which pays off in an unforgettable final scene.
This is an unexplored area for cartoons. No matter how Pixar turns it – whether you're waiting for the right idea to continue the story – from "Finding Dory" to last year's "The Incredibles 2". The consequences of toon were always determined by financial considerations. Granted, "Dragons 3" (as DWA staff internally refer to the film) was barely made for charitable reasons, but DeBlois' approach is intact, and the audience will not be lost.
Robert Abele of The Wrap says:
The first film that was released in 2010 was an animal-and-animal story. the second (from 2014) told a youthful adventure about maturation and heritage; The third, merging the sweetness and the dark that has characterized the growth of this franchise, leads to a satisfying exploration of the possibilities of growing up, which always means both new horizons and leaving behind some things and ways of thinking.
There is "The Hidden World" – the feeling that there is something between a sequel and a sequel, a kind of heartwarming drop-in for beloved characters and breathtaking creatures – in fact fantastic animals – plus an invigorating tour of familiar ones Environments that all have the promise that it's all exciting and meaningful somewhere. In this case, it is a story built around a long-held mythological kingdom on the edge of the world where dragons live in peace.
Michael Nordine of IndieWire is the only one who does not like it. The main character of the film is called the biggest mistake:
This is the biggest problem with "The Hidden World": his hero. Hiccup makes him a far less compelling protagonist than his flying friend, not least because the young upstart makes it easy to agree with his deep-seated fear that he's a boring leader who would not be anywhere without Toothless. It does not help that Baruchel's voice is better suited for a brave child than the leader of a Viking tribe, which is underlined only by the fact that Hiccup's father is voiced by Gerard Butler. CNET's Jennifer Bisset calls the film "Almost Perfect" and says, "DeBlois succeeds in almost every possible way":
There is no greater gift than love, we are constantly told in Viking Land, and it is never more powerful than here. Hiccup and Toothless work in parallel: they fall in love and learn the sacrifices needed to lead their people. They grow in years and maturity through the smartly executed trilogy. With notes from Toy Story 3's punchy ending, their milestones are well and right.
Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is a near-perfect trilogy endanger, who will surely end up with an occasionally unfriendly kite ride. A story about a boy and his best friend, whose timeless values are delivered with wit and epic adventures. After three brilliant journeys, we say goodbye to one of the best film trilogies of all time.
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World will open in the United States on February 22, 2019 . In the meantime, you should read our interview with DeBlois about the upcoming sequel here.
