Hiccup Takes Control
|"How to Train Your Dragon 2" (2014).|
|Hiccup has grown up.|
Fortunately for DreamWorks, "How to Train Your Dragon 2" is another crowd-pleaser that doesn't just extend Hiccup's adventures, but embroiders and enhances them into entirely new swirling patterns of delight.
|Hiccup maps out his next adventure.|
One such journey leads him and his girlfriend, Astrid, to a mysterious fortress encased in ice. A dragon trapper named Eret appears and weirdly blames them for the destruction of the fort, then tries to capture their dragons. It turns out that Eret works for a warlord named Drago Bludvist who is amassing a dragon army to further his designs to take over the world.

Drago also orders Hiccup killed, and Toothless, who has changed sides due to the power of his new leader, tries to kill Hiccup with a plasma blast. Stoick intervenes, though, and is hit and killed instead. Drago then figures that Hiccup is no longer a threat and rides off on Toothless to destroy Berk.
