The full theatrical trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 has arrived and with it comes more dragon goodness. With the dragons fully integrated into his village, Hiccup now travels the lands in search of new adventures with his feisty dragon Toothless. From appearances it looks like they find two (although time will tell whether they are one and the same). One appears to be good. The other, not so much. Also from appearances it looks like DreamWorks has upped their animation capabilities — the flight sequences are much tighter than they were in “How to Train Your Dragon.” Watch the acrobatics above.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 employs the voice talents of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Kristen Wiig.
It’s been five years since Hiccup and Toothless 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 takes flight in US theaters on June 13, 2014 and UK theaters on July 4, 2014.
