MAGNIFICENT NEW TRAILER & POSTERS FOR ANIMATED ADVENTURE 'HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2' WITH CATE BLANCHETT, GERARD BUTLER, JAY BARUCHEL, KIT HARINGTON

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON II
THE DRAGONS ARE BACK!
How excited are you, people, waiting for the dragons to fly into cinemas this June? The sequel to one of the best animated adventures HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON II is landing into theatres June 13th this summer bringing back the legendary animation and beloved characters onto the big screens. Loosely based on the popular novel series by Cressida Cowell, the second part of the epic trilogy (the third one arrives in summer 2016) is again helmed by Dean DeBlois (MULAN, LILO & STITCH, who said that this film is inspired by STAR WARS with the scope of emotions, characters and adventure expanding in many different directions. This is also the first animated movie which uses Dreamworks' new software in its entire production which will create subtlety in facial animation, jiggle, loose skin, the sensation of skin moving over muscle instead of masses moving together! It enables artists for the first time to work on rich complex images in real time!

THE DRAGON STORY
STAND UP FOR YOUR BELIEFS 
The story takes place five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united Vikings and Dragons on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snotlout 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. At the beginning, Hiccup is pressured by Stoick to become chief, but Hiccup declines and flies away from Berk to explore new lands. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new species of dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the centre of a battle to protect the peace when Drago Bludvist plans to raise an army of dragons to take over the world. 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 with the help of his long-lost mother and his friends.

  2. I saw the trailer for How to Train a Dragon at the theater yesterday, when I took the kids to see Rio 2. That was an okay movie. The plot was a little cliche, but the music was good.

  7. I still have to see the first one, but we know I can't go to cinema without The Hubby. This is the perfect thing for a Summer release.

    I will have to give you a belated Happy Birthday darling. I understand not celebrating the day. I never celebrate mine in real life either. Too many people were made unhappy when I came into the world, so I just skip the whole thing.

    1. Don't they have it at your Netflix? I think you would deeply enjoy it, it is so very different from most other movies and in the end it has the most amazing message with brought tears to my eyes.

      My reason, too, dear! And I'm very lonesome and troublesome in this part of my life, so I don't feel like celebrating.
