The flying adventures of Hiccup and his googly-eyed dragon, Toothless, continues! DreamWorks Animation unveiled a teaser trailer (actually more like a cloud-soaring flight sequence) for the upcoming 3D animated sequel "How to Train Your Dragon 2," which will once again feature the voice of Jay Baruchel as the young Viking hero/dragon trainer.
The second installment, which takes place five years after the original and revolves around the discovery of a new dragon species found in a hidden ice cave, is just the newest chapter of a now planned trilogy. Writer-director Dean DeBlois, who co-wrote and co-directed the original, is overseeing both animated sequels. The movie is slated to swoop into theaters next summer, on June 20th 2014.
The thrilling second chapter of the epic HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON trilogy brings us back to the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years after the two have successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snoutlout 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 stars the voices of Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, Kit Harington, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller
