Watch: Focus on Score in 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' Featurette
This weekend, in addition to the raucous comedy of 22 Jump Street, families will have some entertainment with another sequel, How to Train Your Dragon 2. Early buzz on the film has been pretty great, and the last featurette for the animated film showed off some of the new dragons encountered by Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless. Now a new featurette focuses solely on the score, composed by John Powell (Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon) with the help of Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi. Powell comments on his task, "I believe it’s my job to be slightly behind your emotion as a viewer, never in front of it.” Watch!
Here's the new featurette on the score for How to Train Your Dragon 2 from Time:
The second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless five years later. While Astrid (America Ferrera), Snotlout (Jonah Hill) 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. 20th Century Fox releases DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon 2 on June 20th this summer.
