4 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Not every animation perfects that balance of a film that spans the audience generation, but 20th Century Fox’s How To Train Your Dragon 2 looks set to continue its trend of finding a niche in the market and making it utterly accessible to all.

Now we have dragons and vikings on the same side, what else can they bring?

Prepare for the welcome return of Hiccup and his loyal steed Toothless in the sequel to 2010′s epic How To Train Your Dragon.

Returning to the now harmonious Viking dwelling of Berk five years after we left it in the original story, we now find human and dragon working together happily. Astrid and Hiccup’s peers now use their dragons for racing instead of game, while his father Stoick has his sights set on his son inheriting Berk’s leadership after him. Of course Hiccup has other plans, mainly spending his days exploring unchartered territory with his scaly friend.

The new acceptance of dragons as friend not foe allows Hiccup and Toothless to roam the lands freely, providing ample opportunity for the story to move to new lands and importantly, new dragons.  Now minus a leg as the result of the last film’s show down, »

Welcome to the new era of movie marketing, where studios aren't just content to show you a couple of trailers and hope you'll show up. Nope, they will pour on the clips, TV spots and in this case, serve up an opening chunk of the movie, all in the hopes that through sheer advertising exhaustion (or genuine interest) you will show up and fork over some cash for tickets and popcorn. So it goes for "How To Train Your Dragon 2."
