For any of you who happen to know me, one thing you can be sure of is that How To Train Your Dragon is my all-time favoritest movie ever. Yes, I know “favoritest” isn’t a word, but that’s how much I love the dang movie. Toothless, in so many ways, reminds me of my beloved dog…mixed with a playful kitty. The creators just have an epic way of capturing everything great about the pets we’ve all had and bringing them to life with Toothless…well, animated life, while showing this amazing bond between Hiccup and his dragon (much like the bond I have with my dog.) It gives me feels every time…and I’m a cold, heartless, anti-social loner, so that’s saying a lot. Add to that an amazing musical score, a great story with a sarcastically, witty underdog to root for, great characters, spectacular animation and…well, you get the picture: I love this movie.
It pretty much goes without saying that I have been squeeing in delight every time anyone has made any reference to the sequel coming this June (my family has quickly learned this is one thing you don’t want to mention around me unless you plan on being deaf or at least seriously annoyed for the next hour) and this year has been no exception to that as the new posters from the movie have been released. Coupled with a teaser trailer, the official trailer and games and toys, I’ll be set for the next week, at least, and dying in anticipation for How To Train Your Dragon 2 to finally come to a theater near me for my viewing pleasure. I’ll try to contain my excitement until then, but you know, dragons! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the latest images or teaser trailer, check them out below as well as the official synopsis provided by Dreamworks and be sure to hit up your local theater this June for another great adventure with Toothless, Hiccup and the vikings of Berk!
The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later.
It’s been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings 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. 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.
And as an extra bonus, some great images from How To Train Your Dragon 2! Granted, I’m not entirely sure if these are official images, but if they’re not, they’re still pretty great, so enjoy!
