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.

“I truly adore the first one.  I think it’s one of the greatest flicks ever.  Period.  And one of my proudest moments.  So it’s no hyperbole when I say we smoke the first one with number two.  It’s going to be pretty incredible in every way.  The emotional content, the action sequences, it’s everything it’s supposed to be and then some.  It’s really going to be a pretty incredible, beautiful flick.  People will go buy tickets, see this movie, and be taken on a journey like they’ve never been on.” – Jay Baruchel, the voice of Hiccup, discussing HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 with SlashFilm.com.
