Hiccup and Toothless lead the Dragon Riders as they soar beyond the borders of Berk and discover the mysterious Dragon eye - an ancient artifact filled with secrets that will lead them to new lands filled with undiscovered dragons. But the heroes find themselves pursued by marauding dragonhunters, who will stop at nothing to seize the power of the Dragon Eye. Excited yet? You should be!

The Bottom Line

The How to Train Your Dragon Movies are always reliably good, so it was no surprise that this series is fun, funny, and fantastic to look at (seriously, they take the animation to new heights with this series.) In fact, it has a few more epic fights than your average movie or show because it's streaming on Netflix instead made for TV. We recommend checking this one out, it's non-stop high-flying hijinx that'll keep you entertained through all 13 episodes.
