Being semi old and crusty, tough and gristly, I remember the good old days of animation, all Disney, when about all the detail you really got in a scene was the shaded apple or the reddish hued nose of an alcoholic dwarf. Things have changed. Watching the action in Dreamworks second trailer for “How To Train Your Dragon” is a wonderful lesson in depth and how to really fill out an animated world.
“How To Train Your Dragon” is about a guy that finds his true calling isn’t killing dragons but understanding them. He’s sensitive. It stars Gerard Butler (Scottish Viking), America Ferrera, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz Plasse, Kristen Wiig, Tj Miller and Jay Baruchel as the dragon whisperer named, ah, Hiccup. It could still be good. Have some faith. “How To Train Your Dragon” starts this March in the 3D.
