2 Comments

The fourth animated film trailer of the week has debuted, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World!

The film looks to be just as good as its predecessors to me. I’m loving the Light Fury as well as F. Murray Abraham as the villain! Gotta wait till 2019 to see this though!

What do you think of the trailer?

Dreamworks Animation’s latest film, Home, surprised many critics and audiences by opening at the #1 spot in the weekend box office with a $52 million gross! The film, which many (myself included) deemed it sure to fail provided a much-needed boost to the already-faltering Dreamworks Animation.

Did you see the film? How was it? Do you think Dreamworks Animation can pull itself out from under?
