A melange of hundreds of excited and screaming children (and their parents) descended on Vector Area last night as the hugely popular How To Train Your Dragon finally made its much anticipated New Zealand premiere.

The show, which is based on the 2010 Dreamworks film of the same name, didn’t disappoint with fans declaring it was well worth the wait.

The audience were treated to a visual feast as winged beasts and Vikings took to the skies to light up the Auckland arena.
