Dreamworks upcoming How to Train Your Dragon movie looks like a fun story, and the animation has come a long way from the early stuff the company would crank out.

Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, the action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges he and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.

My son is currently driven to set a world record for watching Cars over and over, so if this movie gets him off his latest compulsion, I’ll anxiously await for the March 26, 2010 release date.

    Looks sharp.

    A couple of those scenes at the end look like they where almost straight out of the old Panzer Dragoon video game on the old Sega Saturn.

    This will be one to go to the theater on.
