Dragons: Defenders of Berk - Part 2 (2014/DreamWorks DVD)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: B Episodes: A-

The adventures continue for Hiccup and his Dragon Academy. By now, all the Vikings clans know of Berk and of their trained dragons, and after seeing how having a dragon can give an advantage in a fight, they all want one. While they continue to train and break new grounds between humans and dragons, other clans aren't as happy with the peace and harmony between the humans and the dragons versus when they used to hunt each other. Will Hiccup and company be able to defend Berk from it's invaders? In Part 2 of Dragons: Defenders of Berk, Hiccup and the Dragon Academy continue to train and prepare on coming Viking invaders and wild dragons who want Berk, the best and largest island on the archipelago. Along with new dragons and enemies, Hiccup must keep the peace between the humans and dragons and protect them from the Skrill, a legendary lighting dragon.

This was a fun series good for children who like dragons and adventures. As the series progresses the dragons become more personalized, characterize and symbolic of their riders, and the dragons becomes more like a pet than wild monsters. While they DO fight other Vikings and dragons, everything is comical and no one really ever dies.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix are as good as these shows are going to play in the DVD format. Extras include Dragon Tracker, Part 4, Evolution of the Skrill, Here Comes the Fire Dragon Mash-up and the World of DreamWorks Animation. We also received a tie-in comic book separately and though it does not come with this release, it was surprisingly well made.
