How to Train Your Dragon, which earned $479 million worldwide, is currently one of the best reviewed films of 2010 with 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, and is Dreamworks Animation’s highest-grossing film at the American and Canadian box office that is not a Shrek film. Dragon opened to $43 million during its first weekend of release but through word of mouth it stayed in the top 3 for nearly 2 months and even managed to claim the #1 spot again a month after its release.
DreamWorks are currently working on a sequel which they plan to release sometime in 2013. If they follow the books of which How to Train Your Dragon is loosely based then the title of the sequel may be How to Be a Pirate.
