How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is the third and final movie in this series. It is a fun, ‘growing up’ movie with the same stunning visuals as the previous movies. There is lots to discuss around the themes of love, family and relationships, and team work. Overall it is a great family movie however there are lots of battles and violence that younger kids may find scary.
