This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Justin Herring from the Casual Cinecast joins us to discuss How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and our top 3 scenes from trilogy closer films. We also talk about Justin’s new feature film, Camino, now out on VOD.

Big thanks to Justin for joining us on the show this week. We are big fans of his show, but as you’ll hear on the episode this week, his film was quite enjoyable as well. So, it was a pleasure to have him on this week to talk about it and what the process was like for him. Finally, it can’t be overstated as to how excited we were to talk about Dragons once again! We love this series and were happy to talk about its conclusion.

Top 3 Scenes from Trilogy Closers (1:08:32)
This was one of the more challenging and complicated Top 3 lists we’ve perhaps ever done on the show. For one, there is a gray area as to what defines a “trilogy” these days, as many franchises have surpassed the 3-film mark, which in theory could undermine the third film as being a “closer.” However, depending on how you look at it, having more than three films isn’t necessarily undermining the first three acting as a trilogy. That is to say, we had some lengthy criteria this week to help decipher how this topic operated within our lists. Once that was done, because there are so many great trilogies out there, the amount of scenes to choose from was endless, making this exercise all the more difficult. But it was really fun too! That said, what would be your Top 3?
