What’s on TV Wednesday: ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ and the Real Oz

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: THE HIDDEN WORLD (2019) Stream on Hulu; Rent on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Vudu and YouTube. Why, when there’s a heroic warrior involved, does the dragon always need to be the bad guy? That’s a question the original installment in this animated series posed when it came out at the beginning of this decade. The movie introduced audiences to Hiccup (the awkward young hero voiced by Jay Baruchel) and Toothless, the dragon that became his companion. The latest and supposedly final installment in the series sees Hiccup and Toothless dealing with a new foe: a vicious dragon hunter voiced by F. Murray Abraham. “If you’ve spent any time with these characters,” Ben Kenigsberg wrote in his review for The New York Times, “it’s hard not to get swept up in the saga, and it’s easy to be moved by the bond between Hiccup and Toothless, who is, in effect, a very loyal dog who can fly and harness the power of lightning bolts.”
