Watching ‘DRAGONS: DEFENDERS OF BERK’, eating Dragons Mac & Cheese

In Movie, Review by Chris

Dragons: Defenders of BerkI know what you may be thinking…what could a movie and mac and cheese possibly have in common? I’m glad you asked!

As part of my duties being a Fox Home Entertainment Insider, I get great access to new movies and kids projects. Its fun for the whole family. This week, I got a new DVD based on the hit movie, How to Train Your Dragon. The DVD consists of 10 award-winning episodic adventures of Dreamworks’ Dragons: Defenders of Berk.

Back to the mac and cheese business. We knew we were going to be making an evening of binge-watching Dragons, so we stopped at Target for some snacks. I stumbled on the mac and cheese aisle and there were Dragons Kraft mac and cheese! Who woulda thought!? Anyways, they made for an easy evening of cooking and paired perfectly with our night of cartoons.

In recap of our evening, Defenders of Berk is just as good as the movie its based on, and the animation is superb. What I think is most fascinating about the whole series is Hiccup and his friends are still voiced by the original actors, like Jay Baruchel and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. The DVD is just in time too, as the highly anticipated sequel, How to Train Your Dragon 2 is coming to theaters this spring. We can’t wait!

Based on the DreamWorks Animation Academy Award® nominated movie How to Train Your Dragon, DRAGONS: DEFENDERS OF BERK PART 1 follows Hiccup and his fellow dragon trainers as they battle to protect their island home. The young Vikings must put their dragon training skills to the test to defeat dangerous and surprising new enemies! The series features original voice talent from the film including Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse and will include, Zack Pearlman and more.

Defenders of Berk, and the previously released Riders of Berk, is a must-own for any Dragons fan to catch up before the summer event when How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits theatres June 13th! The DVD is jam-packed with special features that dive deeper into the exciting world of Dragons, including Dragon Tracker Part 3 featuring an in-depth look at the Screaming Death, Fireworm Queen, Flightmare and Skrill dragons; Evolution of Screaming Death, a featurette with visual effects supervisor David Jones who explains the history behind this interesting and scary dragon; and the “SuperFly” Dragon Mash-up music video. When it comes to action and excitement, the sky’s the limit in this high-flying animated TV series.
