I saw the teaser trailer with the first one so I didn't consider it a spoiler as they released it to the public. As for the second one, I thought it was a punch to the gut. Just after it seemed like this could be a very happy ending, they went and did that. That said, it also added tremendous emotional depth and pathos to the story. You don't see that often in animated films these days.
I'm not one to look down on a movie just because DreamWorks made it. A good animated movie is a good animated movie. That said, I usually skip DreamWorks movies in theaters. Most of them don't appeal to me and though I often catch them on TV, it usually happens that my first instinct was right. This year is unusual in that I will see more DreamWorks animated films in theaters than Disney on account of Mr. Peabody and Sherman and Dragon 2. I'm still undecided on Big Hero 6. It's not capturing my interest yet.
And even if I do see Big Hero 6, it has to be spectacular to be a better film than Dragon 2.
