About the Book

One of the many reasons the How to Train Your Dragon films are loved by children and adults alike is the music. John Powell composed the music for all three films, maintaining thematic consistency while writing new themes for each film. This book serves as a score guide for the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy. Every note has been examined to thoroughly discuss the music for Hiccup, Toothless and the other dragons, Vikings, and the enemies that they encounter. It features interviews with the composer and nearly 100 musical excerpts.
