Prepare for high-flying adventures with Hiccup, Toothless and the rest of the Dragon Trainers. Meet new dragons, learn the secrets of the legendary Boneknapper and see what is in store for the holidays on the festive island of Berk.
When Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.
Dagur the Deranged escapes from prison and ventures in the uncharted territories to build an armada against Hiccup and his Dragon Riders. Coming across a cylinder (christened "Dragon Eye") that provides information on the uncharted territories, Hiccup and his quirky team search the region looking for both Dagur and hitherto unknown species of dragons, eventually leaving Berk to build for themselves a new and distant base of operations called Dragon's Edge.Written by
In How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014), it was made more than clear than no one aside from Berk ride dragons in the Archipelago. This is why Valka was such a surprise. Stoick even told Hiccup their tribe are best off on their own, they don't have any alliances, there are no other dragon-riding tribes and that Berk should continue to keep to themselves. This is why one of Hiccup and Astrid's hobbies are to scare off other villages with their dragons whenever they are off exploring together. Race to the Edge completely backtracks on this by creating characters of their own (Heather and Dagur) to be a part of the Dragon Riders. There is no Heather or Dagur in the movies and for a TV-series that claims to be a bridge between the first two movies, this is considered a really big continuity error. See more »
I am simply amazed that so much was accomplished with such a small budget and cartoon. The animation is very impressive for just a netflix only series compared with the earlier cartoon that ran until 2014. My only flaw with the show would be the lack of character development throughout the show, but its not quite a big enough flaw to constitute anything less than 10 stars. The creators of this show have perhaps started a new era of TV show movie spinoffs,but we will just have to wait and see. Again, I am very impressed by everything that this wonderful kids show has to offer to the netflix community, and I certainly wish that it would still come on regular TV so others that don't have netflix could enjoy this show. But otherwise, great job, DreamWorks!
