How To Train Your Dragon
December 1, 2012
ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents How To Train Your Dragon. In a Viking village where dragons attack frequently and burn everything to the ground, you don’t want to bring one home as a pet. Hiccup, the young and out of place son of the Viking chief, has spent his entire life being shunned and cannot seem to kill a dragon even if his life depended on it. When he encounters a young dragon in the woods one day, he sees a new side of them: not the fire-breathing, terrifying dragon his town fears so much, but a personable and humorous companion. In a bold decision, Hiccup decides to secretly tame the dragon, even if his father—chief Stoick the Vast—disapproves. Plus, maybe this will be his chance to impress the lovely Astrid who has seemed so far out of his league. Featuring the voices of Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill and Kristen Wiig, this adventurous animated film is sure to please audience members of all ages.
