7 years of HTTYD!

It's March 26 again! This marks the seven year anniversary of the release of HTTYD into theaters. Sadly, I did not watch it on opening day, but I still try and watch it every year when the 26th rolls around! I've bought myself some soda and theater candy, and tonight I plan to watch the first film again on a nice, big, flat screen tv. I haven't actually watched through the first film in a while, so it should be a lot of fun! I also plan to write a full post about how HTTYD has gone from one great film to being very developed franchise. I'll rate how much I've enjoyed each installment to the HTTYD universe, and hopefully it will be a fun read.

My first impression of "The Serpent's Heir"!

So, I have now purchased and read the new HTTYD comic "The Serpent's Heir". To be honest, I have read very few of the RoB and DoB comics... mostly because they felt a lot like the show and I din't really care that much to go out of my way to find them. This story, however, is written in part by Dean DeBlois, AND it come directly after the events of HTTYD 2. Since the director had a hand in crafting the story, I felt that it would feel much more "canon" than most of the tv episodes. I've been really anticipating getting to read this plot... after all I've been dying to know how Hiccup and Toothless function together after the events of the second movie (to see my short story about how I envisioned events directly after the film, click here). Well, I will say that this comic is different than I expected, but I did really enjoy it and it helped answer two MAJOR questions that I have been curious about and that I know have bounced around in the fandom for quite a while. So, wanna know my thoughts of the comic in detail? Click the read more!
