Sometimes it is pretty cool to have friends who have awesome jobs. My friend Ann, works for Drramworks, and she got preview tickets to Dragons 2 for this morning.
What a fun experience to hang out at a movie theatre in Redwood City with tons of Dreamworks employees.
Now for the movie. Nothing short of amazing. The story picks up 5 years after the first movie. This way it is able to also fit in the TV series.
We join the village of Berk in the midst of prosperity with a happy world where humans and dragons live together in harmony.
But, of course, we need a plot twist to move this story along, so in comes a dragon master who wants to protect all dragons, as well as a dragon warrior who would like to use dragons for world domination.
It is a power struggle where lives are changed forever. Can’t go to much into it without giving away some great secrets. You are just going to have to see it for yourself.
It is so fun to see the characters aged 5 years. There are new life changes for the kids that are now in their early 20s.
I highly recommend seeing this one in the theatre. There are many scenes that are huge in scale and really need that big screen treatment.
We also got to see it in 3D. I don’t think there is really anything that makes the 3D that much better. You can probably save the few extra dollars and go with the 2D version.
Go see it next, opening next Friday, June 13th.
