One of the biggest surprises in 2010 was the animated film “How To Train Your Dragon” from DreamWorks. While the animated movie branch of DreamWorks isn’t comparable to Pixar’s, “How To Train Your Dragon” was a very welcomed change of pace for the movie studio.
“It has been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and Vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snotlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. At the beginning, Hiccup is pressured by Stoick to start a family and become chief, but Hiccup rebels by flying away from Berk and exploring new lands.
When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.”
The new trailer looks good! I was a big fan of the first, so I’m keen on checking out its sequel. “How To Train Your Dragon” was surprisingly touching, so hopefully the sequel will re-capture the magic from the original.
DreamWork’s new animated film features the voices of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Kit Harington, Cate Blanchett, and Djimon Hounsou. “How To Train Your Dragon 2” was written and directed by Dean DeBlois, while John Powell composed the animated film’s score.
“How To Train Your Dragon 2” will hit theaters everywhere on June 13, 2014, in 3D.
