What is there not to love about this movie? I’ve talked before about how wonderful this remake looks, but now I’m doubling down. This two minute and 22 second trailer does such a number to my heart, that I feel like I can say with a clear conscience that I’m gonna cry during the full feature. Damn you Disney, you did it again.
I truly like the way Elliott looks and this is coming from someone who despises the original movie. He does look like a big lovable dragon and one that would be indigenous to the North East of America with his moss colored fur. Another thing I liked about the trailer is that it finally shows actors like Wes Bentley and Karl Urban and how they fit into the story. And finally I’m pleased as punch that we still haven’t seen hide or hair of the stupid Gogan Family.
