A couple of days ago, Yahoo! Movies released the first five minutes from what may well end up being the best animated film of the year. Yep, DreamWorks released an extended look at their hotly-anticipated How to Train Your Dragon 2! Check it out below.
The scene opens with Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) narrating Berk, as it seems to have changed for the better since we last saw it. Then there's some dragon racing, featuring supporting characters from the first film like Astrid (America Ferrera), Snotlout (Jonah Hill) and big-grumpy-viking-dude Stoick (Gerard Butler). That's all well and good; pretty fun stuff. But the opening gets really good when its cuts to our two heroes: Hiccup and Toothless. The now-one-legged Hiccup and his dragon soar about the sky (it's really just an extended version of the original teaser trailer) to a great backing track. Anyway, check it out for yourself - it's embedded above.
Remember to also check out the final trailer we got for the film a couple of weeks ago (providing you don't fear spoilers, that is) here.
HTTYD2 is directed by Dean DeBlois and also stars the voices of Cate Blanchett, Djimon Hounsou and Kit Harington. It opens on 13th June (US)/4th July (UK).
