How to Train Your Dragon 2 Teaser

"This is amazing!" Finally! The very first teaser trailer for DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon 2 has arrived, re-introducing us to an older Hiccup and his flying friend Toothless. This highly anticipated sequel to the beloved 2010 animated movie reunites man and dragon after their encounter at the end of that first movie. This teaser is the two minute flying sequence that we went head over heels for at CinemaCon earlier this year, showing a wonderful scene of Hiccup and Toothless flying through the clouds with some new contraptions. Whether or not you liked the first one, this is a fun must watch teaser. Enjoy!

Watch the first teaser for DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon 2, via The Film Stage:

The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the world 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. Fox will release DWA's How to Train Your Dragon 2 in theaters June 20th, 2014 next summer.

Wow. This looks great! The new suit is sweet.

DAVIDPD on Jul 12, 2013


I don't understand how this works because it looks like he's gliding at almost a 180 degree plane but modern wingsuits will have 30% drop at least, what is keeping him afloat, and that scale wing on the back wouldnt even do anything. Really dumb, I wish they did their research but thats Dreamworks

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


Will be a shit movie

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


quiet, you.

ColtNoir on Jul 12, 2013


ur shit

Flora on Jul 12, 2013


Obviously, it's because of the dorsal fin!

Neuromancer on Jul 12, 2013


yes, let's break down the validity of aerodynamics and physics as depicted in a children's cartoon movie about....dragons. seriously, get a life.

xtheory on Jul 12, 2013


Well will the characters in the movie jump 20 feet in the air? No, because people would say "wtf people cant do that!". But no we'll have him glide in a wing suit like he has a 30liter motor (at least) propelling him. I know dumb ppl will love the movie but I hope everyone here will avoid this kind of kiddy stuff 🙂

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


I love how people can spend their free time trying to sound more intelligent than everyone else. Huh, wait a second, this seems to be a cartoon kids movie. I also love how you seemed to have some great texting lingo. ppl? Really? You have time to google some physics, but you don't have enough time to spell out people? Maybe "dumb ppl" want to see this movie because the first one was really good. It had it great storyline for "kiddy stuff". I have a feeling that you would watch a Harry Potter movie and say, "Magic isn't real! J.K. Rowling and Warner Brothers should do their research." I'm gonna see this movie, and hopefully someone like you won't be sitting in front of me.

blackkiko on Jul 12, 2013


I bet you'd watch a movie where people had their heads on backwards just bc it had a good story. That's the impression Im getting from you, and people like you are the reason the standards of movies are falling enough to where we dont question what can FLY in them anymore. People with 4 arms who cares! How to Train your Dragon had a great story, but at the end of the day the 31 (32 debatably) moments of wrong physics totally overwhelmed it. Critics ignore it, but after so many it becomes insulting DRIVEL, sorry im the only one who sees it in the world I hoped they saved this one from that but we're off to a bad start. Sorry movie lovers but love better movies! Like you ever will. I have higher standards

Moof on Jul 12, 2013



Amanda on Jul 12, 2013


Ask Dreamworks if they hold themselves to a lower standard because they're making a kid's movie. If they say yes, well.......guess that's why they aren't Pixar 🙂 only 7 infractions over their entire library

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


I hate so much about the things you choose to be.

Phillip Gockel on Jul 12, 2013


I read this and I shake my head. I'm amazed that there are educated people who lower themselves to 'troll' level. People like Moof I suppose can't appreciate things as they are. Intelligent perhaps, but not smart.

Alyssa Querido on Oct 12, 2013


Moof your a Doof

Sky on Jul 12, 2013


I wondered when you were going to drop the Pixar card. Yeah Moof, you have it all figured out. Dogs flying planes, talking rat chefs, 3 films about toys that come to life, superhero families (which I'm sure all probably defied many laws of physics!), monsters that go to college and live in your closet, houses that fly across the world tied to balloons, two! films about talking cars and a film about people being turned into bears after eating a cursed tart. All of these are a-ok for you, but aerodynamic inconsistencies of a wing suit is unforgivable. We get it. You are a Pixar-only fanboy. That's fine. I love Pixar films. I also love many other animated films that I watch just for the pure enjoyment of them. I think it's sad that you feel the need to troll the web in search of ways to spread your own spiteful brand of negativity. Nobody here attacked you, yet you go out of your way to call fans of this film franchise dumb. It seems like the only insulting drivel here is coming from you.

Smirktastic on Jul 12, 2013


You completely missed my point. Toys talking, a monster world, cars being alive are intentional subversions of reality that the audience is quick to accept. HOWEVER, and listen close chum, this is important...if Toy Story featured a scene where Andy's arms grew 3 times as long to grab something, and then retracted, and it was never mentioned again, it'd completely trip the audience out and might even ruin the movie. They'd leave the theater asking "what was with that??" We can't suspend our disbelief for things behaving differently than they normally do unless there's a good reason and it's properly set up. "Monsters going to college" is easy. "Hair falling out and turning to lava" isn't as easy, unless you explain it. "Wingsuit acting like an airplane" might not be a big deal to the uneducated masses such as yourself. But like I've said, I'm of a higher breed, and because of my education and knowledge this sort of thing hurts the movie's world for me in the same way that Andy's stretchy arms would hurt the movie's world for dumb people. And yes, one of those 7 mistakes that Pixar has made was the house in Up. Another one is how the chopped up food flies through the air in Ratatouille.

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


I didn't miss your point at all, CHUM. You are being nit-picky, self absorbed, and insulting based on TWENTY SECONDS of an animated character in a fantasy film gliding in a wing suit. Nobody gives a shit what type of education you say you have. You think people are telling you to shut up because they think you are right? Hardly. They just don't want to read your obviously biased, negative attacks on them. If you have an opinion about the film, thats fair. If you don't like it, then don't go see it, but stop telling people they are dumb, uneducated, and that the movie will be shit, if your only motivation is to say you don't like the physics of it. Since you are of a "higher breed", I'd expect you to be using your grand I.Q. for better things than talking down to people you don't know. If people don't give a rat's ass about the laws of physics pertaining to animated films, that is their prerogative and it says NOTHING about the level of their intelligence. For you to suggest otherwise is petty and immature.

Smirktastic on Jul 12, 2013


You did miss my point, and you aren't doing a very good job of covering it up.

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


dude, its for kid's entertainment and everybody else that knows how to have fun.

Flora on Jul 12, 2013


Moof, that is your opinion. Please do not consider your opinion as that of the general audience as you stated here. "Sorry movie lovers but love better movies!" Just because you find that physics are a necessary part of a good movie does not mean that your standards are higher than those of anyone else. However, though I appreciate that you have different views than me and that you have all right to state them to the world, allow me to state my own opinion. Dreamworks Animation creates movies that seem like they come from dreams. The strangest events one would preceive often occur in those dreams, including a lack a physics. I can fully understand why you feel that way, but this lack of correct physics simply does not affect a plot line or character development, which in my opinion are the most important parts of a movie.

OneOrigin on Jul 12, 2013


k, in the next movie all the people will have chins down to their feet, and nobody will mention why, and it won't affect the audience's enjoyment or the plot or anything. Yeah right it wont. the only one dreaming here is you and because most people understand chins, but don't understand physics, Dreamworks can get away with it. Well not with me. Like I said, I have higher standards due to education Sorry 🙂

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


Yea except the fact that no one will ever make a movie bizarre like that! You are exaggerating your views of "chins down your feet", or "heads on backwards" like really? The gliding thing is slightly, but SLIGHTLY out of physics! You think a child will catch that! NO! Though a CHILD will catch the oddness of the "chins down your feet" and "heads on backwards". Sheesh! When the movie comes out take your family and watch the thing, damn.

Katie on Jul 12, 2013


Of course! Children wont know its bad, so its not bad! Great point Katie. You can like the movie

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


if u have such "high standards" why did u even bother watching the trailer?!

Flora on Jul 12, 2013


If a movie had a really good story about people with their heads on backwards, who wouldn't watch it? A good story is absolutely WHY you see a movie. You can watch stuff on History channel if you're only into watching movies for realism.

Chazzy on Jul 15, 2013


It wouldn't have a good story ABOUT people with their heads on backwards. It would have a story FEATURING people with their heads on backwards, with no explanation, which would be confusing and distract from the story. Most people won't be distracted by unexplained wingsuit physics magic, but for the more educated of us, it sticks out like a sore thumb.

Moof on Jul 16, 2013


Please, Moof. Tell us what movies you do enjoy. I can't for the life of me think of a single film in existence in which every single thing that happens is completely in line with reality and requires absolutely no suspension of disbelief. In addition to that, you should quit throwing around phrases like "the educated of us," as you have quite shoddy grammar.

Chazzy on Jul 16, 2013


me too

Flora on Jul 12, 2013


Moof, just be quiet.

fooM on Jul 12, 2013


You know your opinions right when people dont have points and just tell you to shut up... Sorry you all cant let this slide

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


I understand that it's not fun to suspend your disbelief. I really do. I have had discussions about all the stupid parts in movies. Like shooting a car and having it explode. Yet, I think an animated movie should be left out of the discussion. It's pretty obvious that it's not real seeing as it's animated. This just isn't the movie to have this discussion over.

blackkiko on Jul 12, 2013


k then you wouldn't mind a stop light having the colors green yellow BLACK w/o an explination if they make it part of the movie, ok, but this is just lazy and stupid people dont even know it

Moof on Jul 12, 2013


All, please, stop feeding the troll...

Joe Kundlak on Jul 12, 2013


u just don't know how to have fun

Flora on Jul 12, 2013


Nice job beating the straw man. Classical mechanics is something that usually is depicted accurately because it's clearly visible how they apply, and it can be modeled using basic scalar and vector algebra. Aerodynamics, on the other hand, is a subject that is relatively more obscure, and very difficult to model. Hell, I modeled Toothless and concluded he would need to be flying at ~100km/h if he was to be crusing horizontally without flapping his wings (that actually IS from my calculations using simplified aerodynamics, avoiding multivariable calculus like the plague). Obviously that can't happen with Hiccup on top of the dragon, it's like driving a car on a highway without a windshield. You know how much that hurts? It's not like blockbuster action movies don't have their pile of physics errors, either. Just watch all the CinemaSins' videos on YouTube. Planes outrunning (?) explosions, selective magnetism, etc. etc. Bottom line: The justification of why you "hope everyone here will avoid this kind of kiddy stuff :)" is bullcrap.

The longest duration wingsuit flight is 9 min 6 sec, and was achieved by Jhonathan Florez (Colombia), above La Guajira, Colombia, on 20 April 2012. Florez managed to break three Guinness World Records over two days for the greatest absolute and horizontal distance covered in a wingsuit flight and also for the longest duration flight. Yea the laws of physics is being grossly exaggerated...but hell every movie does it...all the wings did was slow his decent...ever see camera work when a parachute is deployed and the camera man is still falling? Hes still falling considering you dont know the exact height, distance traveled, speed of fall.... In short he has more control while falling so i would say he is falling with style. As for your fin being useless read below and note even though it doesnt have the right height needed it would still do some of what is described below. The vertical stabilizers, vertical stabilisers, or fins, of aircraft, missiles or bombs are typically found on the aft end of the fuselage or body, and are intended to reduce aerodynamic side slip and provide direction stability. It is analogous to a skeg on boats and ships. ...most wings suits dont have fins mostly because the back holds your parachute, so the only other pace to put them would be the feet wing...kinda challenging since the webbing without a frame prevents a sturdy structure. Reason why this guy cant have a feet wing is because hes riding a dragon and needs that space, hence the flawed design... but if i tore every movie that was fantasy or scifi a new hole there would be few movies i would like... so i grab some popcorn turn off my years of engineering, let my imagination soar, and enjoy the story, or booms, or awesome cars because... we watch movies for the fantasy escape not to be reminded of our current limitations.... I am beginning to wonder if everyone has forgotten that.

Dravas on Jul 13, 2013


stupid. stop over thinking things.

fooM on Jul 12, 2013


it's an animation movie genius

Flora on Jul 12, 2013


Yeah, bloody Dreamworks disregarding reality in their movie about dragons!

Chris on Jul 14, 2013


People will accept dragons. People won't accept a dragon with Britney Spears' head, at least without an explanation. They know how ridiculous that is. Most people don't know how ridiculous the wingsuit behaving like that is, because they're not educated enough to know. I am. That wingsuit is as ridiculous as a dragon with Britney Spears' head. Don't worry, the moral of the story is that you're better off being dumb. You have nothing to worry about.

Moof on Jul 14, 2013



Lame on Jul 14, 2013


Looks fun! Btw, does the Dragons: Riders of Berk series tie in with the movies at all or are they seperate from both?

Neuromancer on Jul 12, 2013


Think I read somewhere that its set between the 1st and 2nd movie.

joe on Jul 14, 2013


Good stuff.

Nielsen700 on Jul 12, 2013

They actually let him grow up! That is exciting for some odd reason...most kid films never do this. I wonder how many attachments he has for is foot?

Xerxexx on Jul 12, 2013


: Everyone is upset about the physics and yet no one is comparing the books to the film for once? XD I call this more of a blessing. Keep on with you pointless 'logical' problems with the trailer! I LOVE this franchise no matter what cartoon movie logic Dreamworks pulls on us.

Q-A the Authoress on Jul 12, 2013


The score was fantastic!!

PKI on Jul 12, 2013


Looks stunning!

tzarinna on Jul 12, 2013


my daughter is going to love this and we'll only use her as an excuse to see the movie.

Barbara Ruiz on Jul 12, 2013


Going to have to go see that!

Russell Shouse on Jul 12, 2013


I read the description about Hiccup being older, and I wasn't sure about that at first. But then I watched the teaser. Yep, gonna see this movie.

Stormie on Jul 12, 2013


There is adventure, in the newer generation, as long as movies like these keep comin out.

dvt on Jul 12, 2013


Did hiccup always only have one leg?

Kento on Jul 12, 2013


he lost it in the final battle

Matthew Sam Russell on Jul 13, 2013


I want to hear more from Moof! I bet he complained in Harry Potter 1 when the snake winked, because only the intelligent souls among us know that snakes can's wink. (they can't talk either, but let's not go there just now. - the debate is physics) HTTYD is the finest animated film I've seen since The Iron Giant, which had lots of crazy physics problems, but so what!!!

Gomes on Jul 13, 2013


wow that was just brilliant!

A5J4DX on Jul 21, 2013


Moof they live in a world with dragons and you are complaning about a kid who can make a suit to flies so he can fly like a dragon cut the crap. Plus this is just the trailer maybe you get your wish and they explain abot the angles and all the shit about the suit in the movi and bore the audience to death and we all live happily ever after.

JKWCCM on Jul 30, 2013


Hiccup you bloody genius. I feel like looking at Berk's own Tony Stark without the iron suit and inflated ego.
