A Warrior and his winged Steed return for further airborne adventures in 2014.
Dreamworks Studios have today released the first promotional poster for their upcoming animated fantasy film How To Train Your Dragon 2. The much-anticipated sequel to the surprisingly accomplished How To Train Your Dragon (2010, 4/5), this second instalment pits young Viking character Hiccup and his faithful companion Toothless against an army of wild dragons and the uncovered Dragon Rider himself.
As is so often the case for the first stage of a film's marketing campaign, the initial poster (left) isn't heavy on plot teasers by any stretch. The follow-up's protagonist is clad in armour and appears more determined ahead of his next conflict this time around, but that shouldn't detract from the effective comedy setpieces which made the original such a welcome hit three years back.
How To Train Your Dragon 2 glides into cinemas worldwide on June 20th, 2014.
