I love cartoon movies that are actually sophisticated enough for adults. How to Train Your Dragon is one of the those movies.
Hiccup (the boy in the photo) lives in a Viking camp who hunt dragons. Because of his size he isn't taken seriously and trained as a blacksmith and inventor instead of a hunter. During a dragon attack, Hiccup fires one of his inventions at Toothless the dragon and badly injures him. I don't want to give away much of the story. Suffice to say Hiccup learns to be strong, empathetic, and not to judge a book by its cover . . . or a dragon by its teeth.
An excellent movie for the whole family.
