Last weekend, I finally went and had happiness restored to my life by the rather sublime and incredible The Lego Movie. However, before I was able to feast my eyes on the heart-warming nostalgia fest, I was also treated to five minutes from the upcoming [How to Train Your Dragon 2](movie:44736) .
Luckily, Dreamworks has now unleashed the footage online for everyone the world over to enjoy. Check it out below:
It's been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snotlout 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. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.
Although Dreamworks have ramped up the marketing for How To Train Your Dragon 2 rather significantly, there is still quite a long wait until you'll be able to see it fully. How To Train Your Dragon 2 flies into theaters on 13 June 2014.
