After a four year wait, How To Train Your Dragon 2 is nearly here. To help remind people why we should all be looking forward to returning to the world of Hiccup and Toothless, the first five minutes of the movie have been released.
It’s slightly surprising we’ve got it so early, as the film doesn’t hit US cinemas until June 13th and will be out in the UK July 4th – although it does a good job of suggesting this is a movie that’ll be worth the 3D admission.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Set for release in June 2014, 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.’
