How to Train Your Dragon 2: The First Five Minutes

How to Train Your Dragon 2: The First Five Minutes

| On 25, Apr 2014

I was never a big fan of revealing the first few minutes of a motion picture in place of an edited trailer, but that’s what my kids and I witnessed right before “Rio 2” last week. In this instance, the five minute sneak peak was better than the feature presentation. Less than two months away from its official release date, “How to Train Your Dragon 2” (because kids don’t need subtitles), DreamWorks Animation has started their big summer 2014 marketing campaign.

The opening sequence involves (spoiler alert!) a brief race scene and Hiccup’s scary airborne practice scene with his loyal dragon Toothless.

The sequel begins five years after the first film on the Viking home Berk Island, and is the middle chapter of a proposed trilogy.

Vikings and dragons now live side by side in supposed harmony with custom stables, feeding stations and other amenities.

Director Dean DeBlois revealed in an interview about the story: “At the end of last film, all these Vikings who were previously somewhat landlocked are now on the backs of dragons so the entire Northern Hemisphere opens up to them. And with that Hiccup’s curiosity increases, the map expands and inevitably they are going to come across new dragons, new cultures. Hiccup then “discovers a larger conflict brewing between humans and dragons and he finds himself at the center of it”.

It stars the voices of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig with the addition of Kit Harrington, Cate Blanchett and Djimon Hounsou.

The film will be screened out of competition at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival and it will be digitally remastered into IMAX 3D
