If you love the world of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, then you’re in for a treat as Dreamworks have teamed up with Netflix to produce a regular series Dreamworks Dragons coming in 2015 that’s based on the films.
You’ll find Hiccup, Toothless and all their friends from the Island of Berk flying onto Netflix for this original series for kids. All-new seasons of the award-winning series DreamWorks Dragons will be available to Netflix members in all territories, including France and Germany, which ain’t too shabby at all and I bet will grab a few adult viewers as well.
Based on DreamWorks Animation’s hit HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films, the new episodes bridge the gap between the first feature film and the much-anticipated sequel HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 premiering in cinemas this summer. Weaving a continuous storyline, the television series works in tandem with the feature films and DVD specials, allowing fans to delve deeper into dragon lore. From the origin of Hiccup’s new flight suit and the secrets of his dragon blade to the young Viking’s budding romance with Astrid, DreamWorks Dragons on Netflix gives viewers rich details of the larger narrative with the introduction of new dragons, exotic places and worlds unknown.
Sounds awesome and the best news is that both Jay Baruchel and America Ferrera, who voice the two young Viking heroes in the feature film, are set to voice Hiccup and Astrid, and joined by Christopher Mintz-Plasse and TJ Miller who will reprise their roles as Fishlegs and Tuffnut in the series. Art Brown and Douglas Sloan, will be the show runners for DreamWorks Dragons, and they had this to say:
“The How to Train Your Dragon franchise has been incredible to work with. There is so much rich material available to us in the TV world that we can really dig in and create a different yet complementary experience to the feature films.”
Dreamworks Dragons begins in 2015 and we’ll bring you all the latest as we hear it. In the meantime, check out our HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 coverage here.
