Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is a Norse teenager from the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. However, his progressive views and weird sense of humor make him a misfit, although his father (Gerard Butler) is the clan’s chief. Tossed into dragon-fighting school, he endeavors to prove himself as a true Viking, but when he befriends an injured dragon he names Toothless, he has the chance to plot a new course for his people’s future.
