DreamWorks Animation has released the first teaser trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2. The movie picks up five years after the first installment, and has Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless exploring new territories while the rest of his friends are enjoying dragon races. During one of Hiccup and Toothless’ journeys, they discover “a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, and the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.” None of that plot is conveyed in this teaser trailer. Instead, it throws us back to the joy of the flying sequences in the first movie, and then ups the ante. We see a confident (and hot) Hiccup pulling daredevil stunts, and for a teaser trailer, it’s a perfect announcement that the sequel is on the way. I can’t wait for this movie.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also features the voices of Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Kit Harrington, and Gerard Butler. How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in 3D on June 20, 2014.
Here’s the synopsis for How to Train Your Dragon 2:
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. 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.
