How to Train Your Dragon Trailer

DreamWorks Animation has just debuted the first official trailer for How to Train Your Dragon on this lovely Monday morning. This is the new DWA movie we've been making fun of for a while but now that we have a trailer, I've actually got to say it doesn't look too bad. The voices, as usual, seem a bit out of place, but maybe that's because I always just prefer to hear a voice I've never heard before, not one that I have. Though the one question I do have is if the plot has been changed. I thought this was supposed to be about capturing dragons, not a boy who finds one that he wants to keep alive? I'm not sure. Either way, enjoy the trailer!

How to Train Your Dragon is the story of Hiccup, heir of Viking chiefdom and the most lovable, unlikely hero, and his quest to hunt down the fiercest dragon, bring it into submission, and pass his initiation.

How to Train Your Dragon is co-directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders, who together both directed Lilo & Stitch before eventually hoping over to DreamWorks. Voices in the film include Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Craig Ferguson, Kristen Wiig, America Ferrera. Paramount is bringing How to Train Your Dragon to both regular and 3D theaters starting on March 26th next year.

  • xerxex
    had me until the "In 3D" comment. The gimmick dosen't seem necessary. I will see this, just not see it in theaters.
  • 4th begger
    looks better than shrek.
  • klaus_komix
    Yeah it does look good! Enough said.
  • Stevo
    It does look pretty good and the voice of the main char is driving me nuts trying to figure out who it is... It sounds like the kid from Undeclared, but I can't tell.
  • hulk
    Wow, this actually looks really good, im defiantly gonna watch this!
  • It's a step up from retarded, which is good for Dreamworks,
  • Itri
    Yes, this looks a lot better than the lackluster Monsters vs. Aliens. Kind of sort of excited.
  • -Peter-
    d'aw looks pretty good for Dreamworks Craig Ferguson's voice was pretty stand-out obvious, just saying
  • xerxex
    Stevo Jay Baruchel is the main character voice.
  • dsparks

  • Marc21qw

  • Man With No Name
    I really enjoyed this trailer.
  • zeldaprimed
    Looks really awesome!!!! thank you for useless reptile...lawlz... the blacky dragon is cool...
  • shadow
    Really don't like the voice of the lead, doesn't seem to match at all, but I gotta admit that dragon design looks far better than the one shown on the posters. I'm cautiously optimistic.
  • qazwsxedc
    At first I found the main character's voice, that of Jay Baruchel, to be somewhat off. But then I heard Craig Ferguson and Gerard Butler, and holy crap they didn't fit at all. Jay's voice all of a sudden made sense compared to those two. Dreamworks always just pick a lineup of celebrities, instead of finding people with fitting voices...
  • Nikhil Hariharan
    I actually enjoyed this trailer, hopefully its good!
  • shadow
    Also Dreamworks gets bonus points for having the dragon not talk.
  • Andy
    shadow, I had the same the thought. I was so worried that the dragon was going to open its mouth and talk in some dorky, squeaky voice. I feel like this has the potential to actually be good.
  • troy
    not surprised at all that this is coming in march, they new this wouldnt stand in the summer or Christmas, which is when the real companies put out movies.
  • not expecting
    Well I was suerprised to hear that was a draft, quite well can't waiuit til next year.
  • Mark
    #17, so true. I loved Kung Fu Panda, but everytime I felt myself being pulled in I'd hear Jackie Chan or Angelina Jolie or Lucy Liu or Seth Rogen or David Cross... and suddenly I'd be distanced again. Although Jack Black and Dustin Hoffman worked (tof course Dustin Hoffman always works). For "How to Train Your Dragon", I'm more interested in the silent characters. They seem way more fun.
  • Alfredo
    Main dude's voice doesn't work, as other people have pointed out. The dragon doesn't look that great either. Meh....
  • DoomCanoe
    hell yeah
  • Timothy
    Looks pretty good. I like the main characters voice, too. it's different. Takes a little getting used to, but it has an unexpected quliaty.
  • I think this looks amazing...a very fresh idea for once!
  • Steve
    Is it me or does the dragon's head look like Stitch from "lilo & stitch". Disney's lawyers must be forming by the mouth after having seen this trailer. I know it's the same directors but they couldn't have gone for a different look of the dragon.
  • dave13
    i hate to admit it, but I think Dreamworks made an original story for once. animation is ehh. but points to them for a new story that isn't all fart jokes!
  • arjones
    I think I'd like to see it without the 3D like shrek is. I"m a tooney and I like anime but enough with the 3D already. I hate wearing the stupid frickin' glasses and paying 2 bucks more when the movie doesn't need it.
  • Madnezz344
    neat :)
  • Roderick
    wow, that really looks interesting.
  • Dave
    I'm going to support all original movies from now on. I'm tired of all of the remakes, reboots, sequels, prequels, adaptations, etc.
  • sildra
    For those calling this original, it IS an adaptation of the book by the same name, FYI.
  • meatcarnage
    @34 ... they are calling the book original then. See how I made that connection for you? I do that shit all the time big guy. This movie looks like a fun time.. 3D rules!
  • neonblue120
    i hate the look of the dragon i hope they change it
  • dqniel
    I love the art direction choice for the dragon because it doesn't look like, well, every other dragon. Looking forward to this even though it doesn't look that funny. Kung Fu Panda didn't really look funny in the trailer either, but I loved it.
  • Alex C.
    3 comments and 1 conclusion. 1) The story sounds like fun, but the whole "look & feel" of the movie seems a lot less rich than the one of Kung Fu Panda. This said, as this is more a teaser than a trailer, I presume there's much more to it. 2) I can see Chris Sanders behind the main Dragon's character design (hal-looo Stitch!) - but that's a quality rather than a weak point. Lilo & Stitch was absolutely brilliant - and I wonder what "Bolt" would've turned out to be if Chris had brought it to completion. 3) Vikings with Scottish accents? Why not texan ones? I would've rather had good voice talents going for funny pseudo-Scandinavian accents. In any case, I'm really looking forward to seeing this: I'm pretty sure it will be much better than this (teaser) trailer.
  • that guy
    It gets my vote.
  • Raul
