Are you ready to be taken deeper into the world of mythical dragons and vikings with Scottish accents? How To Train Your Dragon 2 picks up 5 years after the events of the first film, and Hiccup is older and wiser, but still sounds like Jay Baruchel — puberty is a strange thing.
I’ve actually steered clear of trailers for this film (the first movie already sold me on a sequel) but did a quick refresher course so I could let you know if this new trailer is worth your time. It is. More of Cate Blanchett’s storyline is revealed, perhaps a bit too much, but the new set of wild dragons and this ever expanding world is beautifully showcased in this third trailer. The stakes seem higher, the action more intense, and the dragons more… dragony???
The highly anticipated sequel also stars America Ferrera as Astrid, Kristen Wiig as Ruffnut, Jonah Hill as Snotlout, T.J. Miller as Tuffnut, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Fishleg, Craig Ferguson as Gobber, and Gerard Butler as Stoick the Vast, with Kit Harrington as a Dragon Prince.
DreamWorks Animation’s How To Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters June 20, 2014.
It has been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united Vikings and Dragons 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 become chief, but Hiccup declines and flies away from Berk to explore new lands. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new species of dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace when Drago Bludvist plans to raise an army of dragons to take over the world. 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 with the help of his long-lost mother and his friends.
