Based on a popular series of children's books, an animated feature about dragons, adventures and coming of age was released on this day in movie history.
The How to Train Your Dragon books were written by Cressida Cowell, and a Dreamworks animated feature was made based on them, simply called How To Train Your Dragon.
Released on March 26, 2010, the computer-generated feature focuses on a young Viking named Hiccup who befriends a dragon instead of killing it as tradition dictates. The movie was a big hit, grossing nearly $500 million. The success led to a TV spin-off on Cartoon Network and two theatrical sequels are in the planning stages, one releasing later this year.
