DreamWorks Animation has released the first clip from the highly anticipated sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2, and it’ll make you want to revisit the first movie ASAP. The follow-up takes place five years after the first installment, as Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless are exploring new territories while the rest of their friends are enjoying dragon races. During one of Hiccup and Toothless’ journeys, they discover a secret ice cave, hundreds of new wild dragons, and the mysterious Dragon Rider. This debut clip is brief, but the gorgeous animation coupled with the character humor and reprisal of composer John Powell’s theme is a wonderful reminder of just how lovely the first film is, and I cannot wait to see what the sequel has in store for us.
Hit the jump to watch the clip. The film also features the voices of Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Kit Harington, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Djimon Hounsou, and Kristen Wiig. How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in 3D on June 13th.
