There are many things I love about How to train your dragons movies. But what I love most is in the first movie despite being an animation movie for kids told that war and bravery have consequences : Hiccup lost a leg.
Now the second movie is going to portray a young disable hero! it’s rare and it is portraying in a postive way.
I also love how the female characters in httyd movies are strong; badass but they can be sweet , loving and feminines too. It’s not one way or another , they are both. it’s rare too.
While most Big hero 6 fans are mad that the movie didn’t get the Golden globe because of his POC characters.
I want to remind you : How many heroes are with a disability in animated movies? Here we have both Hiccup and Toothless being with an handicap. Along with others characters.
It’s a role model too for all people and kids with a disability , to have a hero like them and who is a leader.
Dragons 2 also possessed strong female characters in their own style.
To say that HTTYD 2 got the award because it has no POC character make you forget that important fact.
How to train your dragon 2 is an amazing movie, not only it was visually wonderful, the plot was good, the characters aged!! and a minority is represented . A minorIty which is very rare because they are disabled people and they are not shown in a pity way.
