Here Be Dragons

Watch The First 5 Minutes Of How To Train Your Dragon 2 So You Can Be Late To The Theater!

I’ll admit, I’m not one for seeing a whole section of a film before I get to actually sit down for the whole thing, but at least this way you can be a few minutes late to the theater and not have to worry. Right? Whatever, I’m excited for How to Train Your Dragon 2 regardless.

Genderswap Disney & Dreamworks Characters Deserve Their Own Film

DeviantArt maby-chan has done their genderswap version of Disney and Dreamworks characters, something we’ve seen in a few different styles before, and I can’t help but want to see them in their own films. Take a look at Merida, Rapunzel, Sinbad and more!

Maya Van Wagenen is 15, Getting a Dreamworks Movie of Her Book

In a story that seems perfectly designed to make you feel like you’ve done nothing with your life, Dreamworks has optioned the rights to a diary fifteen-year-old Maya Van Wagenen kept when she was thirteen. This makes her the youngest non-actor to get a feature film deal with Dreamworks pictures.


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”!

Things to Do With Your Kids

Netflix to Make Shows Based on DreamWorks Characters, Cement Their Dominance Over the World’s Children

Netflix-less parents, be prepared to buy a Netflix account so you can get your kids to shut up about wanting to see the new How to Train Your Dragon TV show. That’s how parenting works, right? You can tell I’d be such a quality mother.

I would kind of like to see a How to Train Your Dragon show, though.
