This teaser trailer for “How to Train Your Dragon 2” picks up where the first film left off, with our heroes riding in the sky as they experiment together on a new contraption that Hiccup has devised for himself. If you remember, Hiccup had lost a foot in the final “battle” against the monstrous dragon that all the other dragons carried food to. So, Hiccup has had to acclimate to the change and not give up.
Just like the first film, the sequel looks like it will be entertaining. We not only have an older Hiccup, but the additions of new characters and talented voices makes the anticipation of the new animated film from Dreamworks that much more exciting.
Written and directed by Dean DeBlois, the film stars the voices of Jay Baruchel (as Hiccup), Gerard Butler (Stoick the Vast, aka Hiccup’s father), Craig Ferguson (Gobber the Belch), America Ferrera (Astrid), Jonah Hill (Snotlout), T.J. Miller (Tuffnut), Kristen Wiig (Ruffnut) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fishlegs). They will be joined by newcomers Kit Harrington of HBO’s hit series “Game of Thrones” as Eret, a dragon trapper, Academy award-winner Cate Blanchett as Volka, a dragon rescuer, and Academy award nominee Djimon Hounsou as Drago Bludvist, a dragon hunter.
- The thrilling second chapter of the epic “How to Train Your Dragon” trilogy brings us back to the fantastical world of Hiccup (Baruchel) and Toothless five years after the two have successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid (Ferrera), Snoutlout (Hill) 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. 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.
“How to Train Your Dragon 2” is slated for release on June 20, 2014.
