It is hard to believe it has been 5 years since How To Train Your Dragon hit the big screen. I remember the night we saw the movie in the theater because the weather was so bad. We had a terrible thunderstorm that day and as much as we tried to talk the kids into going another night, they would not hear of it. The movie theater had actually lost power and remained dark and silent for almost an hour before they were able to let us in to see the film. My kids sat on the edge of their seats for the entire screening and talked about it for months after. One of them pretended to be the dragon Barf and Belch while the other pretended to be Changewing. There is no keeping them quiet for the next few weeks until How To Train Your Dragon 2 opens in theaters.
Adventure awaits! How to Train Your Dragon 2 soars into theaters June 13th. The thrilling second chapter of the epic HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON trilogy brings us back to the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years after the two have successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. 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. 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.
