It's a boy and his Pokemon in new How to Train Your Dragon poster

Feb. 11, 2010by: Paul Tassi

I'm not sure how I never made this connection before, but I'm definitely seeing a whole lot of Pokemon-ness in HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON now. I mean, look at that thing, it should be on a damn trading card with "Flamethrower" as its special move.

This brings me to an interesting idea, I think that Pixar and Nintendo should combine for a Pokemon CGI feature. Think about it, the hundreds of creatively designed creatures and rich Poke-verse, Pixar's excellent writing and storytelling abilities. Genius!

Anyways, what were we talking about? Oh right, there's a new poster for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON poster, click on the bit below to see the whole thing over at MovieWeb.

Extra Tidbit: When I was twelve, I battled a pro from Nintendo who was sent to a Pokemon convention at the mall to destroy kids via Game Boy. I lost. He was a tool.

I can tell you all that this movie has even more heart and story than Kung Fu Panda.

It will definitely exceed expectations.

This looks very cool. I'm glad Dreamworks are focusing on telling a good story instead of pop culture laden jokes. I hope it's as good as Kung-Fu Panda or better. Pixar better watch out, DW are really picking up their game and in my opinion are starting to create better animated films than Pixar. I'd place Kung Fu Panda up there with The Incredibles and this looks like a lot of fun! Love the design of the dragon!

As i've been saying for years, i think a live-action, PG13, balls-to-the-wall, Pokemon flick would be so badass.

My friends and I at work were actually casting a live action Pokemon movie once. We had Mickey Rourke as Giovanni and Christian Bale as Bruno to name a few.

I can see an epic battle scene between an Arcanine and Jolteon, for some reason in my head.

I didn't think much about "Kung-Fu Panda" when I saw the trailers/posters either. I'm hopefully optimistic.

I'm waiting to see some more footage and maybe get a review or two before I make up my mind on this movie.
