Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2 returns to the island of Berk five years on from the end of the original film. Now, Hiccup and his dragon, Toothless, spend most of their time flying through the skies, charting unmapped territories. But when they discover a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the friends find themselves at the centre of a battle to protect the peace.
Disney’s Frozen tells the story of Anna, who goes on a journey to find her elder sister, Elsa, who has the power to create ice and snow and has accidentally trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Along with mountain man Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and a snowman called Olaf, Anna battles the elements to try to reach her sister and save her.
