DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon was one of my favorite films of 2010, and now the studio is set to unveil a television series based on the film called Dragons. The show has been in the works for a while now, but it’s finally set to air this fall on Cartoon Network and the first trailers for Dragons have gone online. The trailers are actually interspersed with a bit of footage from the movie, but the TV scenes are pretty evident when they pop up (ie. TV animation ≠ film animation). Executive producer Tim Johnson previously talked a bit about their direction for the show early last year:

“We’re actually going a little darker, a little more dramatic, much like the film.  The goal was not to change it or lighten it for a TV series.  The goal is to stay true to it in a TV series and that was actually fairly changing.”

The trailers don’t exactly look “dark,” but it’s nice to hear that they’re not completely switching up the genre for the TV iteration. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is still on the way, but we have to wait until June 2014 for its release. Until then, we’ve got the impending series to tide us over. Hit the jump to watch the trailers.

    and cartoon network gets another quality 3d series of course nothing will top clone wars but green lantern also looks pretty good give a few seasons and the quality will hopefully be on par with star wars

    Let’s hope the series will not fall short after 8 episodes.
    They need smart screenplays with interesting protagonists (“good” villains)

      Protagonist is not the “villain”. That would be, “Antagonist”. Protagonist refers to the main character.

    Is there long to be another movie? I liked the first one a lot.

    • Justyn

      I’ve been checking around since the first one came out, and it’s scheduled for release in 2014.
      Seems like quite a long time…
      Jay Baruchel has talked about it.

    The first one was easily the best animated film of it’s year, and robbed by Toy Story for any recognition. I cannot wait for this, I don’t want animated TV anymore but I think i will have to make an exception for this’n.

    Just bring on thsoe next movies.

    Anyone else feel like this dilutes the franchise rather than extending it? Unless, the shows are phenomenal, of course. How’s that Kung Fu Panda TV series going?

    if they did that.
