In "How to Train Your Dragon", the plot is about Hiccup not being accepted by his viking community and instead finds acceptance in an injured dragon he names Toothless. Through their growing friendship, Hiccup and Toothless overcome the centuries of fear and hatred between humans and dragons respectively. Over the course of the movie, Hiccup's father, Stoic the Vast, leader of the vikings, has a desire to find the dragons' nest and kill them all. When Stoic captures Toothless, he uses the dragon to locate the nest. There he blasts it open and all the dragons flee. However, the Alpha dragon, 'Big Mama' emerges to defend her home. Hiccup and his friends, after teaching the others that dragons are misunderstood and not evil, proceed to attack 'Big Mama' and blow her up, leading to a celebration.

 The problem is that by murdering 'Big Mama' the movie directly counteracts the message it sends. Dragons were simply misunderstood. However, all the sentiments about friendship overcoming what amounts to racial distrust is negated. 'Big Mama' was merely defending her home and the other dragons. Instead, the hero, Hiccup, throws away his noble sentiments of friendship and murders her in cold blood.

Dreamworks needs to address this egregious account of a mother being murdered for standing her ground while defending her home and family.
