HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 (PG, SHOWCASE CINEMAS PETERBOROUGH, FROM TODAY)

After multiple previews, the impressive sequel to one of the best animations in recent years finally gets its official release today (Thursday) – and received a four-star exclusive early review on these very pages last week.

It has been five years since teenage Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his trusty dragon Toothless successfully united the inhabitants of the island of Berk – led by Gerard Butler’s Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler).

But when the duo stumble across a secret cave full of wild dragons – and have to unravel the mystery of a secret dragon rider (Cate Blanchett) and evil dragon-catcher Drago (Djimon Hounsou) – this could just change the new-found peace on their home world forever.
