The upcoming sequel to How to Train Your Dragon won’t be arriving in theaters until June, but that won’t stop us from getting a quick sneak preview of the first 5 minutes.
Judging by this short intro and the trailers so far, this is shaping to be one of DreamWorks Animation’s best films yet, and that’s not just because they found a way to incorporate sheep-stealing into dragon racing.
Check out the first 5 minutes of How to Train Your Dragon 2 below!
Obviously, it was a treat to see what’s changed in the 5 years since the Vikings allied with the dragons. As Hiccup explains it, the dragons have moved in and become part of everyday life for the Vikings, and it was great to see what the gang has been up to lately, though Hiccup was mostly absent until several minutes in.
From what we can see, Hiccup has been exploring the world with Toothless and has even taken up cartography. This will no doubt play into the plot of the film, which I’m definitely expecting to be just as good as the original film.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 flies into theaters June 13, 2014.
