‘How to Train Your Dragon 2′: Watch the First Five Minutes

Published 1 year ago by

In DreamWork’s 2010 Viking fantasy adventure film How to Train Your Dragon, the young chieftain’s son Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) felt out of place on the Isle of Berk, where traditional hobbies include growing huge amounts of facial hair and slaying dragons. After finding and taming an injured dragon called Toothless, Hiccup eventually brokered a peace between Vikings and dragons, allowing them to co-exist in harmony.

So, does this new society of Vikings and dragons mean that Hiccup is finally satisfied with his home life? Not quite. The first five minutes of How to Train Your Dragon 2 have now made their way online, and the film opens with Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig), Tuffnut (T.J. Miller), Snotlout (Jonah Hill) and Astrid (America Ferrera) playing a game that involves flying through the air on dragons and throwing around very unfortunate sheep. It looks more fun than Quidditch, but the downside is that there’s a good deal more animal cruelty.

Hiccup, however, is continuing to pursue new horizons – quite literally. Now in his late teens, Hiccup has become much more adept at flying – sometimes even independently from Toothless – and is using the advantage of a dragon’s-eye-view to map out the surrounding country and assign names to the uncharted territories.

The new footage in the clip includes details of Hiccup’s custom-made adventuring gear, and for anyone who’s ever dreamed of going adventuring on the back of a dragon (which is – let’s face it – most of us) this is wish fulfilment at its absolute finest. As the most recent trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2 revealed, however, Hiccup finds a lot more than mountains and forests out in the wilderness beyond Berk – including one family member whom he’d believed to be lost forever.

Overall, How to Train Your Dragon 2 seems to take place on a much larger scale (no pun intended) that the first movie, with bigger dragons, a broader range of locations and even hints of an epic battle between the citizens of Berk and marauding bad guy Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou). Let’s hope Hiccup survives with all his remaining limbs intact.


How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in U.S. theaters on June 13, 2014.

  1. Why? Why would anybody want to do this? I hate this growing trend, it’s not enough that trailers these days show half the movie anyway.

    God, just wait to watch the movie on the big screen for the first time. (the whole movie that is)

    • I don’t mind since I definitely won’t be watching this clip but I have to ask the same question. Why do they release full out scenes from the movie that range from 5 to 10 minutes? Do trailers and TV spots not do it for some people now?

  2. It gets you hooked if it looks good, which this clip did. Now i want to see more, its the first 5 minutes, it literally reintroduces the characters and give 0 new story that we didnt know prior.

    Its called marketing, get people interested with a taste then make them pay for the meal. Costco, sams club, trader joes, etc. have been doing this since i was a child. Much the way games have free weekends on Steam. It works. I watched this, and i will take my daughter to go see this.

  3. Watch Here Full Movie->>>>>>

  4. good movie
