First Look: Hiccup And Astrid In 'How To Train Your Dragon 2;' Plus Plot Description

There's just under one year until the adventures of Hiccup and Toothless continue in How To Train Your Dragon 2. Set for release June 20, 2014, star Jay Baruchel seems incredibly confident in the film saying, "It's going to be pretty incredible in every way."

Our first glimpse at what exactly that could mean has been revealed. A new licensing magazine has a ton of images of the new character designs from the sequel as well as some a new plot description.

The info came from License Global Magazine, via Bleeding Cool. First up, here's a plot description that's slightly different from one that had been making the rounds.

The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later.  While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island's new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds.  When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.

And here are a whole bunch of images, both from the above magazine and this Tumblr.

Those last few appear to be new characters.
