And Fansplosions Abound

How To Train Your Dragon 2 Has a Teaser Trailer!

It’s official: How To Train Your Dragon 2 has a teaser trailer!

This is the first of the “big four” (the four being: HTTYD, Brave, Tangled, and Rise of the Guardians, which do, in fact, have a collective fandom) to get a sequel, so expect fansplosions from the Tumblr set and lots of excitement.

The new video features the flying acrobatics of an older Hiccup and Toothless, being daring and fearless and badass as they rocket through the sky. Also, is it just me or did Hiccup pull the animated equivalent of a Neville Longbottom and had a very successful time with puberty?

Based on the flying maneuvers the dynamic duo are pulling in this video, it looks like Hiccup did figure out “how to train [his] dragon”!

    My cynical, “NO don’t ruin a perfect movie with a sequel no no no” reaction flew out the door (no pun intended) when Toothless made the flappy-tongue grin face.

    Between this and Pacific Rim, I haven’t stopped squeeing in fangirling delight all day.

    Edited to add: I just caught the dragon sigil on his pauldrons/upper arm armor. Nice detail there, Dreamworks.

    I hope its good… Looks fun… I wanna see more Astrid.

    I’m glad that this appears in-continuity with the series; those looked like Thunderdrums at the beginning.

    I wonder if we’ll get to see (now-old) Stoic astride Thornado.

    I just want to see her in–like, real armor.

    As a man I will admit my first reaction was “Oh dear he’s hot.”

  • Foxfire

    Haha I’m not the only one, flappy tongue grin face made me go Awwwwww-some!

    But I’ve been hurt before – Hoodwinked still has a bitter taste in my mouth whenever I re-watch because of the second movie that shared a name with it.

    I’m worried about this one.

    A totally understandable reaction as I felt the same way.

    I still don’t understand what the Big Four actually means since they’re different studios? Is it just some fandom thing?

    Also this looks great! Can’t wait! But Pretty sure Tangled got their sequel in Tangled Ever After?

    So…he’s now Batman?

    (nods) He got all Jake Gyllenhaal on us. I find myself… conflicted. They grow up so fast.

    They have her in real armor. Check the link to i09 above and then the associated article for an Astrid/Hiccup photo.

  • Aundrea Singer

    Thank you. I saw the picture and was indeed pleased that they’re still covering her stomach. Is it too much to hope for that she’ll be in pants, instead of another skit?

    Pants would be good.

  • AnnaB

    Thanks for that. I didn’t think to click on the i09 link, which was silly of me.

  • AnnaB

    And I hope Tuffnut is still there. I don’t think a lot of people realized she was a girl, but I loved her, too. *That* was pretty cool characterization. She was unexpected.
