Dreamworks Animation has released the first movie trailer for Chris Sander‘s How to Train Your Dragon. For those of you who don’t reccognize the name, Sanders directed Lilo & Stitch, and the unfinished American Dog (which was the initial development for what became Bolt). Sanders is now making a home for himself over at Dreamworks Animation, and you can certainly see the Dreamworks influence.
The voice acting seems a bit out of place, as with most of DreamWorks Animated films, it seems like they are casting names to be the characters, rather than an actor who can play the character. I love Jay Baruchel, but for some reason I don’t completely buy him in this film, with this character design and animation — for me it just doesn’t match up. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Animatoons has the first official promotional image for DreamWorks Animation’s How To Train Your Dragon. The image also gives us our first real plot synopsis:
“Meet Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, heir of the Viking chiefdom, but a boy with one very big problem: a hero he is not. “How to Train Your Dragon’ is the riotous story of Hiccup’s quest to hunt down the fiercest dragon, bring it into submission, and—hopefully—pass his initiation. Instead, he ends up with the smallest, most ornery dragon—it’s even toothless! Thus begins the hijinx of the world’s most lovable, unlikely hero and a most reluctant “beast.” Packed with energetic drawings and plenty of action, this boisterous tale is just right for fantasy fans or anyone with a spirit of adventure. Based on the book by Cressida Cowell.”
Directed by Chris Sanders, and featuring the voices of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, the film is scheduled to hit theaters on March 26th 2010.
