Euuuuuuhhhhh. The animation is……. not lookin’ so hot….. wait.
Why are all of the dragons different colors? Why is Firedrake excluded? Why is he an outcast among the others, because he’s silver? They’re all supposed to be silver. They survive on moonlight for their flight energy, that’s why the dragons are silver. I can’t believe you cut out one of the most interesting dragon mythos known to man? WHAT ARE YOU MOVIE???
*sees that they’ve given Ben more of a personality*
Okay, that’s fine. More personality is gr–
*they include a shameless How To Train Your Dragon reference*
Dragon Rider came out before HTTYD.
DRAGON RIDER WAS RELEASED IN GERMANY IN 1997; LATER TRANSLATED FOR THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND RELEASED IN 2004.
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON (THE NOVEL) WAS RELEASED IN 2003.
STOP. TRYING TO BANK. ON A MUCH BETTER MOVIE. (granted the movie is actually better than the book this time around. No offense to Mrs. Cowell’s writing in THE SLIGHTEST, (I loved reading those books. Haven’t read them since college) because the books are meant for a children’s audience. (8-12 ys))
It’s probably going to be sent to Netflix in 2021.
Please do me a favor and READ. THE BOOK. THE BOOK IS ABSOLUTELY LOVELY WITH FANTASTICAL CHARACTERS AND MYTHOS AND CREATURES. IT’S BASICALLY WHAT HOOKED ME ONTO MYTHICAL CREATURES IN THE FIRST PLACE. ZINC AND CO WOULDN’T EXIST WITHOUT THIS BOOK.
PLEASE SUPPORT CORNELIA FUNKE AND HER UNFATHOMABLE RAGE AGAINST THIS MOVIE FOR RUINING HER BELOVED CREATION, THANK YOU.
The sequel to saludos amigos and its much better than it even if saludos amigos is kind of a low bar. It’s Donald’s birthday and gets presents from South America.
The first segment is of a ‘home video’ of a penguin wanting to live somewhere warm and quiet. It does not really have much relevance to South America. This short is pretty cute as it’s narrated by the voice actor of winnie the pooh and has a few wholesome dad jokes. After this it shows birds from South America and introduces and annoying bird clearly inspired by woody woodpecker but thankfully he comes and goes pretty quickly.
The next short is of a boy taming a flying donkey and entering him into a race. The narrator is the boy when he is older so while he’s remembering this story certain objects will be changed around. The boy and the donkey are adorable but the short kind of ends abruptly like they didn’t know what to do after the race.
The next present that Donald opens has Jose carioca in it, things slowly get more surreal from here on out. Panchito, a rooster from Mexico gets introduced. Most of the parts after this feature live action people. Donald spends his time trying to win over these Mexican women, Jose is such an enabler its great. Donald, Jose and Panchito work well off each other.
This isn’t a movie I’d go out of my way to search for but it was a nice silly movie.
