Take Five: How To Train Your Dragon Sequel Will Blast Your Screen 4


Kids love flying. So does adults. When How To Train Your Dragon was released earlier this year, nobody thought it was going to be a major hit. With more than $500 million worldwide gross, its a sure fire that a sequel is on the way.

DreamWorks Animation recently announced that Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and his pet dragon will soar the sky again. It is scheduled to be released on 2013, but hold your hopes high, because the list of casts from the first movie will appear for the sequel. Now, that’s a good sign!

The second chapter to the critically acclaimed 2010 blockbuster, How to Train Your Dragon – which has grossed nearly $500 million at the worldwide box office – will again feature the all-star voice talents of Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, TJ Miller and Kristen Wiig.

The sequel is being made under the creative guidance of Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders, and Bonnie Arnold. It is written and directed by DeBlois and produced by Arnold. Once again based on the book series by Cressida Cowell, the sequel is executive produced by Sanders and DeBlois.

These are Five Things why we think How To Train Your Dragon deserved a second shot:

1. Up, Up, and Fly

For those who watched the first movie, in 3D, you know what we’re talking about. Yes. How To Train Your Dragon is a fun ride, with flying scenes that takes your breath away. It’s beautiful and fun!

2. Promising Plot

There are a lot of things they can develop from Cressida Cowell‘s works. The first movie didn’t faithfully follow the original book, but you can tell that the plot has a lot of potentials. New dragons, new characters, new setting, a whole new adventure waiting to be explored. Sounds like fun.

3. If We Have To Choose

Third Madagascar movie? Sequel to Kung Fu Panda? Puss in Boots? Seriously, we’d rather watch the dragon.

4. Hiccup and Toothless

The dragon doesn’t always show his teeth, and the boy only have one leg. Although the come-of-age kind of movie have been made and remade in lots of movies, we haven’t seen ones like these. Well, at least in other movies, the dragon is far from cute, and the leading protagonist keeps both his legs. And, they looked so sweet together, don’t you think?

5. Why Not?

If other animations could get their sequels, why not this one? We hope they will not destroy the series with an awful second movie. Or, if they somehow successfully score another big hit, we hope it wouldn’t end up like, Shrek, for instance.

That’s it from Five Things. We’ll be back with more short news in Take Five. Do you have a different opinion? Tell us about it.

    Oh yes. “How to Train Your Dragon” is definitely worth a sequel, remake, special edition, repackage, etc.
