Written and Co - directed by Dean DeBlois, in a recent interview he revealed this about the story: “At the end of the last film, all these Vikings who were previously somewhat landlocked are now on the backs of dragons so the entire Northern Hemisphere opens up to them. And with that Hiccup’s curiosity increases, the map expands and inevitably they are going to come across new dragons, new cultures.” Hiccup then “discovers a larger conflict brewing between humans and dragons and he finds himself at the centre of it.”
Although Dean DeBlois will be returning to helm this sequel, Jay Baruchel would be also returning back as the voice of Hiccup. America Ferrara as Astrid and Gerard Butler as Stoick, Dijmon Hounsou will join the voice cast as Drago Bludvist, the dragon rider who would be building an army. Then, Cate Blanchett as Valka, a compassionate figure that saves dragons from Bludvist, her character will be hiding them in an ice cave for safekeeping. British actor Jon Snow as Kit Harington, his role would be to train the dragons. And lastly, Comedic relief will once again be provided by the likes of Kristen Wings, Jonah Hill, T.J. Miller, Craig Ferguson, and Christopher Mintz – Plasse.
This gripping tale explores the advents of dragon-riding where the film moves beyond the small, North Sea Island as it traces the further adventures of Hiccup growing towards becoming leader of his Viking clan. In another article produced by Heat Vision, DeBlois elaborated on his plans for the new film: “There are certain characters and situations that come into play in the second film that will become much more crucial to the story by the third. Other threads from the first will begin to play themselves off in the second. It’s my way of guaranteeing that is not another adventure that we throw the same five or six characters into that it feels like part of a larger story.” To read more go on - http://collider.com/how-to-train-your-dragon-2-details/
Overall, the film has provided us with the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, though it’s based on the book by Cressida Cowell. The action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t exactly fit in with his tribe’s long-standing tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
