How to Train Your Dragon 2 poster header

By the time How to Train Your Dragon 2 comes out, over four years will have passed since the first How to Train Your Dragon hit theaters. And rather than sit idly on the shelf waiting for DreamWorks Animation to bring them back, Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), Toothless, and the rest of their companions have spent the interim growing up.

Since Hiccup revealed the truth about dragons, the flying fire-breathers have been welcomed by the people of Berk, and Hiccup and Toothless’s bond with each other has only deepened. Oh, and Hiccup has “Neville Longbottom-ed” us all by growing from a hopelessly gawky boy into a handsome man. All in all, life looks pretty good.

But the sequel has to have a story, and a story has to have a conflict. So some kind of trouble is brewing for the pair, as you can see in the trailer after the jump.

Obama Dreamworks

A current U.S. President on a motion capture stage. That’s not something you see every day. But it happened Tuesday when President Barack Obama visited DreamWorks Animation to talk to the company (which is headed by major Obama contributor and fundraiser Jeffrey Katzenberg). The President called the entertainment industry “one of the bright spots of our economy” and got a tour of the facility.

One of the stops was the motion capture stage where How to Train Your Dragon 2 director Dean DeBlois explained and demonstrated the technique for the President. And, as a bonus, there’s some new footage from the 2014 sequel. Check out the video below. Read More »

How to Train Your Dragon 2 poster header

One of the advantages of an animated sequel is that the characters never really have to get older if the filmmakers don’t want them to. They can even regress in age, as Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) did for this summer’s Monsters University, twelve years after Monsters Inc. first came out.

But the folks behind How to Train Your Dragon 2 have chosen to keep their characters aging more or less in “real” time, so the sequel features a handsome, grown-up Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) rather than the bumbling teen we met in the first film. His trusty companion Toothless, however, remains more or less the same. Check out the new teaser poster after the jump.
