I think I've been quite effusive with my fondness for How To Train Your Dragon on this blog so it's quite evident that how I am keenly anticipating the film's sequel. This time around, our heroes Hiccup and Toothless are older, wiser and more confident. But the island of Berk still faces threats from those who wish to harm the dragons and it's up to Hiccup, Toothless and their friends to make sure that doesn't happen. Hiccup too must confront a figure from his past he thought was lost to him and Toothless, he's just adorably being Toothless still. I really do love that dragon!
How To Train Your Dragon 2 is directed by Dean DeBlois who co-directed and co-scripted the first film along with Chris Sanders. Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Craig Ferguson and Gerard Butler are all back to voice their characters and Cate Blanchett is the new addition to the cast. This is going to be the highlight of my movie-viewing year and one of the biggest animation films of 2014 as well. How To Train Your Dragon 2 releases in theaters on June 13, 2014! This is one Friday the 13th that I'm actually looking forward to!
