FROM DreamWorks Animation, the studio that brought you Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and The Croods, comes the highly anticipated sequel to the Academy Award-nominated How to Train Your Dragon.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is released nationwide on July 11. 

The films are based on the children’s book series by Cressida Cowell and in the thrilling second chapter of the epic trilogy, five years have passed since young Viking Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) forever changed the way the residents of Berk interact with dragons.

Basingstoke Gazette:

Now, Vikings and dragons live side-by-side in peace on the fantastical isle that has been transformed into a dragon’s paradise.

But when grown-up responsibilities loom on the horizon, Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless take to the skies in search of answers.

The rest of the film’s voice cast includes America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Djimon Hounsou and Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington.
