WATCH: ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’ Trailer Reveals New World of Dragons

Hiccup and Toothless the dragon are back in action in the latest trailer for “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” the sequel to the popular 2010 animated pic.

Jay Baruchel returns as the voice of Hiccup, who’s grown up quite a bit since audiences last saw him as a timid and gangly young Viking. Based on the new trailer, the sequel looks to explore Hiccup’s family life – particularly the dynamic between his parents – as well as the unknown realms of the mysterious dragons.

As the island of Berk gears up for the dragon races, Hiccup faces new challenges as he meets his mother, Valka (voiced by Cate Blanchett). Gerard Butler also reprises his role as Hiccup’s father, along with America Ferrera and Jonah Hill as Hiccup’s pals Astrid and Snotlout.

One thing that hasn’t changed since the first installment? Hiccup and his loyal Night Fury dragon Toothless are still a force to be reckoned with.

DreamWorks Animation’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2” hits theaters June 13.

  1. As the parent of a 4 and 6 year old, no show or movie they have been obsessed with has been as welcome in my life as How To Train Your Dragon. A heartwarming story that doesn’t rely on pop culture references or “over their head” jokes to keep a parent interested. I am very much looking forward to this movie.

    Oh this is so exciting. The story. the animation and the amazing dragons. I saw the first HTTYD when it came out. The 3d was awesome. I have never felt an audience so gripped, so blown away as was in the theatre that day. Totally involved. Totally swept away adults and children alike. You bet I’m going to see this one, you couldn’t keep me away. Gerard Butler and Cate Blanchet, wonderful. Thrilling, now that’s what I call entertainment.
