First full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 teases epic adventure and Hiccup's mother

Dec. 19, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

A full trailer for HOW TO DRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 has finally been released, and besides looking epic and fun as hell, it also reveals the identity of Cate Blanchett's character, Valka. I suppose it could be a spoiler, but since it's in the trailer anyway, I figured it wasn't that big of a deal; it's not as if Dreamworks is trying to keep it a secret. Valka (who we got a first look at a few days ago) is apparently Hiccup's mother, and according to director Dean DeBlois, has been, "living with the animals and learning to communicate with them in non-verbal ways and becoming much like a dragon herself. Her years of isolation and dealing with nothing but dragons and being very sympathetic to them has made her very distrusting of humans.” Enough from me though, take a look at the first full trailer for HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2.

"Protect our people. It's your destiny."

Synopsis:

It's been five years since Hiccup and Toothless 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.

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 starring Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, America Ferrera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Cate Blanchett, Djimon Hounsou, Kit Harington, and Craig Ferguson will be released on June 20, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: That battle at the end of the trailer looked pretty intense.

Won't make the mistake of missing THIS one in 3D . . .

Yeah, the Mom reveal was pointless.

Apparently that is a HUGE spoiler

That the creative team disagreed with including in the trailer. Most of the people who're working on the movie are actually saying it's movie-ruining.

Might not be his mother...

Idk, I just get a feeling that maybe it's going to be some plot twist that she tricks him into thinking she's his mother...

Looks like another fun adventure. Did anyone see the first one in 3D and was it worth it? I figure it could be a great film for the format. I've never seen an animated movie in 3D. I was a bit bummed out I decided not to see Frozen in 3D as I heard the ice castle and the short in the beginning was worth the extra price.

I didn't see it in 3D but after seeing some of the flying scenes, I really wished I had. My 7 year old loves 3D now, so I am sure we will be checking this one out in that format.

Very well worth it in 3D, one of the few 3D experiences I thought deserved it, so far this doesn't look to be any different.

Absolutely worth it. Saw it in IMAX 3D and the depth was amazing. Action and flight sequences (especially the test drive bit through the cliffs) became much more immersive and thrilling. But that was not all. Even the viking beards were so... 3D. It stands on the same level of high quality 3D as Avatar and Tron: Legacy only surpassed by Gravity

Wow - Thanks for all the replies. I get 2 free tickets per week, but that doesn't include 3D films, hence the question. It's always tough to justify spending the money for the 3D. I will be seeing this in 3D. Something fun to look forward to. Thanks again.

The 3D was some of the best in any movie ever.

haha.. I like the fact they made him look older. That's pretty cool. You don't see that too often in animated sequels.

I'm really looking forward to this but I've been told that there's a pretty major spoiler in that trailer, so just a head's up and I'm avoiding it for now.
