A new trailer shows you How to Train Your Dragon

Feb. 26, 2010by:

I have to give credit to Dreamworks -- they keep cranking out the CG-animated movies. Even though I can't really remember any of them.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON is the latest to try and leave a lasting impression, but that weirdly anime-looking flying lizard isn't doing much to lure me in. The voice cast is decent, at least.

The synopsis: A Viking teenager named Hiccup lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. The teen's smarts and offbeat sense of humor don't sit too well with his tribe or its chief... who just happens to be Hiccup's father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he encounters (and ultimately befriends) an injured dragon, his world is flipped upside down, and what started out as Hiccup's one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.

Check out the trailer below or in HD at Yahoo.

This looks great. Dreamworks Animation has always been hit or miss for me; they tend to do best with work that avoids annoying pop-culture references (Kung-fu Panda, The Prince of Egypt).

I'm a much bigger fan of Disney and Pixar then Dreamworks but between this and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs they seem to be holding their own.

Besides.. the animation in this and cloudy is fucking gorgeous.

This looks pretty badass. I'm just hoping it's not one of those movies where the feel of the movie is completely different than the feel of the trailer.

I think this will be a theater visit for me.

Umm, Dave. Your extra tidbit makes no sense. So in two years, all the talented actors are just going to up and refuse to voice animated characters? What a weird prediction.

Anyway, I sit right down the hall from the guys working on this and the buzz has been really positive. I'm pretty sure this'll outdo Kung Fu Panda.

I have a great feeling about this flick! I know people that work on it, and people that has seen 30 min. of it, and everyone is saying this will be good! Come on guys, Chris Sanders is directing this, and Disney is going to kick its own ass, letting him go!

AWESOME

There was something kid-ishly epic (if that makes sense) about that trailer. I'm looking forward to seeing this film.

And I'm not too fond of viking stories or anything within that era. So yea, I was impressed.

im actually looking forword to this one, it looks fun. - as for the exra bit, you dont really need 'stars' to voice animations of any sort, infact some cant do it at all. its all about the emotion you can convay in just your voice and thers plenty of 'unknown' people who are great and even better then some of the big name guys they attatch to these projects. but there are actors whos voices are so perfect for a character they ARE the character.
