2010's How to Train your Dragon was a flyaway success for Dreamworks Animation and unpredictably gained acclaim from both general audiences and the critical flock. So with that in mind get ready to join Hiccup and Toothless on another heartfelt and riveting journey. The sequel to the dragons n’ Vikings animated fantasy was announced a while back and there was a teaser but here is our first full-on visual look at the sequel, in this official poster (released via Facebook), which looks all grown up.
This striking and battle-ready poster is a great start to what we’re hoping will be a stonking follow-up to the excellent first film, instead of a feature that’ll drag-on (sorry couldn’t resist). The official synopsis reads:
“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.”
We have a while to wait yet, as the film takes flight on June 13th 2014 but until then get your armour ready for one hell of a ride… in 3D.
