The first trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 has hit the internet, and in it we see our beloved Hiccup and Toothless return to the skies.
Though this trailer offers no glimpse into the plot, this first look at How to Train Your Dragon 2 follows Hiccup and Toothless as they’re in the air testing some new flight equipment. The duo has a fun surprise for viewers, and it’s almost cool enough to excuse them for being away from our screens for so long.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 is set five years after the original Dreamworks film which is part of the reason why there’s an unveiling of Hiccup’s older appearance at the end of this trailer.
According to the official synopsis, Hiccup and Toothless are now an inseparable pair, and a newfound mission to chart unfound territory leads them to finding “a ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider.” This discovery leads them to a conflict where they’re trying to keep peace amongst the new dragons.
There’s an uplifting, epic feeling to this trailer that we think is teasing the high bar that the sequel plans to jump over.
With Hiccup now aged five years, the young man will surely be experiencing a romantic fling or two during the movie.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in theaters June 20, 2014. The film includes the voice cast of Jay Baruchel (Hiccup), Jonah Hill (Snotlout), Gerard Butler (Stoick the Vast), Kristen Wiig (Ruffnut), America Ferrera (Astrid), Kit Harington (Dragon Prince), and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fishlegs)
