“I turned in the script before the holidays, and got some notes back and I’m working on a second draft,” Dean DeBlois said. “It’s going to be quite epic. We are treating How to Train Your Dragon as the first act in a much larger story. As we head into this one, the world expands. Everything is much bigger with still the heartfelt qualities that made the first one resonate so much with audiences. There are no longer restrictions to this tiny island in the North Sea. They have the entire Northern hemisphere within their grasp.”
“The only way of tracing the story is to draw on elements that were in the first movie and set up elements for a third movie, so it doesn’t feel like a random adventure with the same five or six characters. This truly is a second chapter in a larger story.”
In my opinion, “How to Train Your Dragon” was the best animated film of 2010. Dean DeBlois promises bigger things in the sequel and say BRING IT ON!!!
“How to Train Your Dragon 2” is set to be released sometime in 2013.
