DreamWorks Animation has released a new behind-the-scenes How to Train Your Dragon 2 featurette.  The sequel takes place five years after the events of the first film, and in this featurette writer/director Dean Deblois discusses how the How to Train Your Dragon world has changed since then.  The biggest difference is that now all of the inhabitants of Berk have a dragon; as Jay Baruchel points out, if you don’t have a dragon, you are in the minority.  Moreover, Baruchel’s Hiccup and Toothless are now working to fill out their Viking map by exploring more territories.  The follow-up continues to look great, and with no new Pixar movie this year, HTTYD2 has this summer all to itself (save for the very young skewing Planes: Fire and Rescue), so it should clean up quite nicely.

Hit the jump to watch the How to Train Your Dragon 2 featurette.  The film also features the voices of  Cate Blanchett, Gerard ButlerKit HaringtonCraig FergusonAmerica FerreraJonah HillChristopher Mintz-PlasseT.J. MillerDjimon Hounsou, and Kristen WiigHow to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in 3D on June 13th.

Here’s the official synopsis for How to Train Your Dragon 2:

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.
