How To Train Your Dragon won plenty of fans when it soared into cinemas in 2010, so naturally there is a lot of anticipation for the sequel, which promises to expand the world of Hiccup (Jay Baruchel), Toothless and co. We’ve had a couple of trailers already, but here comes the latest, courtesy of the team over at Apple.
When we catch up with the island of Berk, five years have passed. The residents now leave in peace with the dragons, and while Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races, the now inseparable Hiccup and Toothless 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 centre of a battle to protect the peace.
As with at least one of the other promos, there is a fairly hefty plot point that DreamWorks Animation and Fox don’t seem to be too concerned with giving away, so keep that in mind if you were planning to stay unspoiled for the film’s opening. The trailer’s release date relates to the US; the UK will see How To Train Your Dragon 2 on July 4.
