_How To Train Your Dragon_ is one of my favourite Dreamworks animation films. Actually Its my favourite Dreamworks film and one of the best animated films in recent memory. Naturally then, the sequel has me pretty excited.
Let’s look at the new trailer.
The first film worked for me because when you get right down to it it’s really just a story about a boy and his dog. Except in this case the dog is a dragon, which behaves more like a cat than a dog.
This one seems to take that premise and run with it, introducing new characters (human and dragon) and since the people of Berk are all dragon riders at the end of the first film, it’s a nice extension of that fact which leads to Hiccup and Toothless exploring further out into the world than anyone has before and finding some good things (long lost mother!) and some worse things (evil warlord who controls/manipulates dragons for his own ends).
Here;s the new poster. I fully expect some character sheets to follow in the next few weeks.
I seriously cannot wait until 13th June.
