Berk's Grapevine

Latest Dragons

Ask the Race to the Edge Executive Producers!


Art Brown and Doug Sloan are the executive producers of DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge in addition to producing Riders of Berk and Defenders of Berk, so you can bet they know a lot about the world of dragons! And now it's your chance to ask them about the new show!

Obviously, you can't expect them to reveal too much about Race to the Edge — that would be no fun. But if you're curious about anything, be it the characters, the story, the new dragons, or how the series ties in with the films, no one will be able to answer it better!

Race to the Edge Premiering on June 26!



Check out this new teaser for DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge! The new series will premiere on Netflix on June 26! In Race to the Edge, Hiccup, Toothless and the others will travel outside of Berk to find the Dragon Eye, an "mysterious artifact" that will lead them to discover new lands and new dragons. But the dragon riders much watch out for marauding dragon hunters who want the Dragon Eye for themselves.

It appears that 13 of the 52 episodes will be showing up on Netflix on the same day, June 26, with new sets of episodes being released every few months. That's quite a lot of dragons per day.  Who's ready for a five-hour dragothon?

Also, check out these articles written about the WonderCon panel. Although the footage shown at the panel hasn't been released yet, there's still plenty of information about what we're going to see. There will be new dragons (the Death Song, the Cavern Crasher, the Catastrophic Quake, the Snow Wraith, Night Terrors, and possibly some of the Rise of Berk dragons), another friendly tribe, and lots of time to build on the relationship between Hiccup and Toothless.

DreamWorks released the following about Race to the Edge:

DreamWorks Animation Television today revealed to a standing-room-only crowd at WonderCon in Anaheim, that the all-new Dragons TV series will be called Dragons: Race to the Edge -- and that 13 episodes will premiere this June only on Netflix.

Art Brown and Doug Sloan, executive producers of Dragons: Race to the Edge, were special guests at the Sunday-morning panel DreamWorks: Dragons, Dinos & More, which was hosted by Eric Bauza, the star of DreamWorks Animation's The Adventures of Puss In Boots and Turbo Fast.  Art and Doug revealed that Dragons: Race to the Edge, which takes place one year before the events of How to Train Your Dragon 2, will star the voices of Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, T.J. Miller and Christopher Mintz-Plasse -- and isn't simply "a new series," as Doug said ... but an entirely new epic adventure that Art said "promises more dragons than anyone has ever imagined."

Audience members at WonderCon got the world's first look at the series, in which the discovery of a mysterious artifact called the Dragon Eye "is a game-changer, both for Hiccup and for all of the Dragon Riders," Art said.

Who has any ideas about what this mysterious "Dragon Eye" is? Here are a couple other images from the show:

 




The panel has just begun! Those who are attending received a piece of dragon artwork and a free three-month subscription to Netflix to watch the show!


DreamWorks has just shown a couple new clips from the film and released a new image from the series on their Twitter account. Also, the dragon from the artwork above has been given a name – the Deathsong – and will be appearing in the show as well!

DreamWorks just posted another photo from the show! There will be a total of 13 episodes of Race to the Edge appearing on Netflix in June!
