DreamWorks Animation unveiled a full-length trailer for its upcoming "How To Train Your Dragon" sequel, with a voice cast comprised of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, TJ Miller and Kristen Wiig. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: 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 of Hiccup and Toothless 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.
The new movie is written and directed by Dean DeBlois is set to hit theaters on June 13th, 2014.
This reminds me of Shrek...part 1 was quirky & cool, but lost the charm in the sequels, IMO. I'll be guessing this sequel will probably be more mainstream (expectations are higher) & probably lose something along the way.
Finger crossed I'm wrong, but c'mon...a long lost parent? Didn't they do that sh*t already with the Kung Fu Panda sequel?
Anyway, I'll be watching this just for the animation...the dragon flying perspective and the climactic battle with the huge dragon in part 1 were jaw dropping.
Hopefully the HTTYD sequel will elevate the bar in the animation department.

Don't care for the movie, but I'll be sure to download the art book from CGPeers.
Yes! That one wide shot of the bigass dragon chasing Toothless & Hiccup is amazing. Especially in 3D. You get the full effect of the distance & size of the beast. Great animation!
Speaking of animation & sequels. I actually just met the director of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, Kris Pearn. He gave a great detailed insight on the industry. Especially how studio execs love to rape the creativity out of the animators.
For this sequel, they hired one dude to create names for the fruits/animal hybrids. In 2 weeks, he came out w/ 200 different sketches of these Anifoods. Imagine having that job?!
