Here be dragons…
To prove that I’m not just obsessed with Disney, and simultaneously prove that I am in fact a huge child, here is the poster for Dreamworks next 3D computer-animated movie experience, How to Train Your Dragon.
The movie is set in a mythical world featuring Vikings and dragons (so far so good!) and focuses on Hiccup, a teen who lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. The teens cleverness and wacky sense of humour is frowned upon by his tribe, but most of all by Hiccup’s father (who just so happens to be the tribe leader). When Hiccup is selected for Dragon Training, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he meets an injured dragon, his world is turned completely upside down.
How to Train Your Dragon is co-directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders. These two are responsible for giving us Disney’s Lilo & Stitch before they “defected” to DreamWorks. A strong voice cast features Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Craig Ferguson, Kristen Wiig and America Ferrera. The movie will be out in Ireland March 31st, 2010.
