One of our 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2014, and set to feature new music from Sigur Ros frontman Jónsi, expectations are riding pretty high on “How To Train Your Dragon 2.” The first film landed four years ago, and surprised many by taking in nearly $500 million worldwide. And before you could say franchise, a TV spinoff and sequel were in development. And today brings with it a new look at the animated film.
A fresh trailer has dropped for the sequel, what is already described in the official synopsis as the “second chapter” in a trilogy. Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Cate Blanchett, Kit Harington and Djimon Hounsou lend their voices to this one, which catches up with Hiccup and Toothless five years later, now racing through the sky. But they discover an ice cave in uncharted territory, where new dragons and adventures await.
It looks like if you were down with the first one, this follow-up will fit the bill. “How To Train Your Dragon 2” hits on June 20th. [HeyUGuys]
