Movie Review: 'Dragon' whisperer, too

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

The animated feature sequel, "How To Train Your Dragon 2" (HTTYD2), could have been subtitled "The Dragon Whisperer."

Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel), the lead Dragon Rider, cajoles his charge, Toothless (Randy Thom) back to the fold.

The challenge this time around in "HTTYD2" is that of Drago (voiced by Djimon Hounsou), the evil overlord of the dragons. He controls the dragons to control humans.

Hiccup must overcome the challenge to rally the Vikings and their dragons to ensure his role as heir-apparent and become chief of the Vikings on the island of Berk.
