Final Dragon Trailer Announced, New Character Info


(Spoiler alert!) According to DreamWorks, the final How to Train Your Dragon trailer will appear next Friday, April 11, before Rio 2! The trailer will be 2 minutes and 24 seconds long. There will also be a five-minute short appearing soon that will likely show the first five minutes of Dragons 2.


This is a banner ad meant for internet users in the UK, where the film will be released on July 4. Although it says "this weekend," the ad may not have been published yet, so it's not clear exactly which weekend the five minute clip will show.

More information and photos have been released on HowToTrainYourDragon.com! Here are some new stills from How to Train Your Dragon 2, including detailed images of Eret (above) and Drago.


Finally, a new page about Valka has appeared on the Dragonpedia! It doesn't say very much about who she is, but it does give us a new hint about why she lives with dragons:

Valka is Hiccup’s long-lost mother and Stoick’s wife who was abducted in a dragon attack twenty years ago. Always an advocate of peace between dragons and Vikings, Valka has since lived among dragons, learned their ways, discovered their secrets, and become their fierce protector.  She is strong and uncompromising, but at her core still possesses the overwhelming love of a wife and mother.

Any theories about Valka? What do you think will be shown in the first five minutes of the film?

  2. I'm ready to see this movie!!!!! Why can't time go faster?? Best part of this movie... we get to see Hiccup's mom :)


    The one thing they both have in common: believing there should be peace between Vikings and dragons.

  3. Drago so ugly, so ugly. He looks like me in the morning; grumpy and hateful.

    ReplyDelete
  4. He look ugly, scary and awesome. Just how a good villain should look like.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Question; so there is going to be a second trailer (for all of us)? And Rio 2? I thought it was already out (I'm stupid)

    ReplyDelete
  6. Yes, so true. He's going to be an epic villain!

    ReplyDelete
  7. True dat. I wonder how smart their really being with releasing all this information. It seems like a lot of the big surprises have already been given away. Is there anything that their keeping from us? Because if there is I'm pretty sure we're all gonna get our hearts ripped out.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The details on the new still images are so sick!
    2 years ago I said in a lecture about computer animation that the first movie is still the top of the class on the technical aspects and only the sequel could top that. But I never thought that it will be so good.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Okay. This is what I was hoping for a new trailer.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'd like see a fight between him and Pitch Black and see how that goes down.

    ReplyDelete
  11. O-O One. Last. Trailer? I don't think I can last that long. DX But I don't want more spoilers but why DWs, WHY?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yay Yay Yay Yay!! I am so excited. I can't wait. :D


    I hope the short/5-minute opening isn't something I have to see in theaters because I don't think I'll be seeing any movies lately where it'd be showing (because I doubt it'll be shown before Captain America). Hopefully I can find it somewhere on the internet when it comes out.


    Still...new trailer coming next week...I...I...I just need to get off here and go to work...XD

    ReplyDelete
  13. 5 minutes, that's like, an entire movie! XD

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm really curious to see the Trailer and the 5 minute clip. But I hope they are not too much spoiling...

    ReplyDelete
  15. We can blame Fox, since they are the ones who wanted Hiccups mom in the trailer.
    And who knows, maybe we get to know his mother in the trailer for a reason? (adding many spoilers just to be able to do a lot of plot twisting?)

    ReplyDelete
  16. If you read on the poster:
    Exclusively at Odeon cinemas nationwide this weekend.
    you pretty much have to see Rio 2 to get to see it..

    ReplyDelete
  17. Nationwide... so only in the UK.... Should I travel to the UK and see Rio 2 just for the 5 minute clip? I think the clip will be online later. If DreamWorks isn't doing it someone other will record it and upload it

    ReplyDelete
  18. Anyone else sick of the spoilers?

    ReplyDelete
  19. hiccupandtoothlesshybridApril 4, 2014 at 5:08 PM

    I can wait much longer this is driving me nuts

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is awesome!!! I'm so excited!!!!!! Oh, I can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Not really, I like them.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Woo hoo!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. If you travel to the UK, I'll come too ! XD

    ReplyDelete
  24. Telling us about a new trailer isn't exactly a spoiler.

    ReplyDelete
  25. CatherineDesbiensApril 4, 2014 at 5:17 PM

    I'M GOING CRAZY!

    ReplyDelete
  26. 5 minutes of pure happiness !

    ReplyDelete
  27. YOU MADE IT! XD

    ReplyDelete
  28. hmmmmm.... So you want me to travel to the UK? ^^

    ReplyDelete
  29. Just as long as they don't spoil the ending or every little thing that's going to happen in the film, I'll be ok. So nobody the ending when it comes out! :( Wait like a month and a half and then we can geek out.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am at a loss for words, I need to check what day it is, probably not long! Just so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  31. One does not simply tell dragons fans to, "Wait like a month and a half and then we can geek out." XD

    ReplyDelete
  32. CatherineDesbiensApril 4, 2014 at 5:24 PM

    I hope the trailer and short are released after the premiere of Rio 2 :D

    ReplyDelete
  33. CatherineDesbiensApril 4, 2014 at 5:25 PM

    XD One simply gives us a copy of the movie XD

    ReplyDelete
  34. It's like deja vu..... *flashes back to December and remembers all the excitement for the first trailer* XD

    ReplyDelete
  35. I may have a reason to see Rio 2, no offense but it looks kinda dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  36. CatherineDesbiensApril 4, 2014 at 5:31 PM

    I went absolutely crazy in December XD

    ReplyDelete
  37. I couldn't sleep the last 2 nights since the final trailer was announced. I had scary dreams about posts on Tumblr or Grapevine about strange news and spoilers. I woke up every hour to check both sites.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I liked the first one, but when I watched the trailer for Rio 2 and saw one of the kids with headphones in, my hopes were kinda lost.. XD

    ReplyDelete
  39. I wasn't following HTTYD2 much that time, but that's when I started obsessing over it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I liked the first one fine, but this one doesn't as much.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I realized how much I loved it after I saw the teaser trailer last June.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I scroll down and see the pic of drago, it made my heart jumps so fast, it freaks me out

    ReplyDelete
  43. He looks fantastic :D

    ReplyDelete
  44. CatherineDesbiensApril 4, 2014 at 5:39 PM

    He is freaky isn't he? Gonna give me nightmares XD

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh I'm sooooooooooooo ready to see this movie.


    I've already posted theories on Valka if anyone is interested. Not that they are anything groundbreaking...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Shoutout to Hookfang's amazing eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I hope they make him real nice and scary and evil.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Because I must admit I had thought of the same thing... XD

    ReplyDelete
  49. CatherineDesbiensApril 4, 2014 at 5:42 PM

    They are so awesome! :D That detail tho..

    ReplyDelete
  50. YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY! GCKDAYIL RFHASJKDGFUK SAGJKDCBSAKJVD JKSAUKDHSAKJ BDJAS KJD. YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Okay, closer inspection make Hookfang's eyes look weird...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well but then I only can go for a weekend...

    ReplyDelete
  53. Exactly what I'm feeling, you put it so beautifly into words.

    ReplyDelete
  54. And Snoutlout had an adorable face !
    Eret makes me think of the Croods... XD

    ReplyDelete
  55. His eyes REALLY look like a cat's..

    ReplyDelete
  56. Gotta go guys, it was so much fun obsessing or being fans with you guys.

    ReplyDelete
  57. He does look like Guy XD

    ReplyDelete
  58. I like it, it's a good character design. Absolutely fits his character. But that will still give me nightmares.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Only a weekend, but that would be more than enough ! you can see 4 musicals during one weekend !

    ReplyDelete
  60. But Dreamworks was actually angry that Fox put Valka into the trailer. I remember reading it somewhere.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Only 60 comments? Did everyone like die, or is every on the plug?
    I'm not allowed.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Yes they were angry about it. I've also read it

    ReplyDelete
  63. XP No one can beat me at putting things into words when I'm hyper (unusual unless it's about HTTYD)

    ReplyDelete
  64. No. There isn't anyone in the plug(.)dj chat

    ReplyDelete
  65. Everyone is saying that the trailer is before RIO2, but Rio 2 comes out in July for me? :( I'll have to wait then.

    ReplyDelete
  66. GlowWormTheFlightmareApril 4, 2014 at 5:51 PM

    YAY!!! So excited can hardly wait!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. The trailer is only in the UK, it's a (not yet published?) banner of the UK

    ReplyDelete
  68. Maybe he is his descendant? Imagine if they put a hint in the movie like in Frozen when Rapunzel appeared. That would be so cool.

    ReplyDelete
  69. That late ! Unbelievable !

    ReplyDelete
  70. I didn't know that. Strange that Dreamworks didn't get to check it before it was released, no ?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Back (sorry I'm posting too much)

    ReplyDelete
  72. OK, I'll watch Drago's face one last time and go to bed to get sweet dreams XD

    ReplyDelete
  73. GAH. I'm bored. Everyone died. It's only 7:30 in the morning.

    ReplyDelete
  74. *gasp* where are you ? it's midnight here

    ReplyDelete
  75. Bye! Sleep well!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I'll wait for it online then.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It's 2:59 in SoCal.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I was thinking of Australia ! So good morning for you !

    ReplyDelete
  79. Okay... weird....

    ReplyDelete
  80. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 5:58 PM

    FINALLY!
    Someone in Australia!
    Where in Australia are you?
    I'm in NSW

    ReplyDelete
  81. I KNOW RIGHT!!!!!!! he scares me especially scence he walked through fire. this is sorta off topic but when I first saw Alvin and old Hicc and Astrid I had a nightmare Alvin killed stoik

    ReplyDelete
  82. Thx ! That's sweet !

    ReplyDelete
  83. I think they will upload it a week later. Because if DreamWorks isn't uploading it someone other will record and upload it

    ReplyDelete
  84. Lol. I hate being in a different timezone though.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Yeah, it's weird ! XD

    ReplyDelete
  86. Is there any Americans here?

    ReplyDelete
  87. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 6:00 PM

    Am I allowed in thin conversation?

    ReplyDelete
  88. Yes, sometimes I hate it to be in a different timezone AND not living in the USA (because of the contest with the Itchy Armpit for example)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Sure, everyone is !
    I'm leaving though, but that's not because of you ! XD

    ReplyDelete
  90. No, no, no! You will stay here!

    ReplyDelete
  91. You're not helping. You know how bad I am at quitting !!

    ReplyDelete
  92. CleavintheChangewingApril 4, 2014 at 6:02 PM

    I am so excited for the new trailer!
    69 days to httyd 2!

    ReplyDelete
  93. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 6:02 PM

    Close enough

    ReplyDelete
  94. Ha ha. Queensland and New South Wales.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I am helping! Helping at NOT quitting ^^

    ReplyDelete
  96. Southern California, a state in the USA

    ReplyDelete
  97. I want to go to America. There I said it.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Aaah much better for me ! Thx ! As we say here, I'll be less dumb when I go to bed tonight !

    ReplyDelete
  99. ToothlessNightFuryApril 4, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    guys. on Stoick's character thing it says an old foe RETURNS so Drago or Eret ware old foew?

    ReplyDelete
  100. CleavintheChangewingApril 4, 2014 at 6:04 PM

    7 days!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love your sense of humour ! :)
    You're most helpful then !

    ReplyDelete
  102. oh so 2:59 pm ? I thought it was am

    ReplyDelete
  103. If, then Drago. Because Eret is too young to be a old foe

    ReplyDelete
  104. The dumb looking guy in the first pic is ERET? Before this I thought Eret was a women name. I don`t expect this guy to be any smarter or more selfcentered than he looks.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I love America too !

    ReplyDelete
  106. I think its drago cause dean was talking about that drago is someone he new a long time ago

    ReplyDelete
  107. It's sad, that we all are in different timezones. If we would live in the USA it would be between 7pm and 3pm I think... And you wouldn't have to quit ^^

    ReplyDelete
  108. That's so true, my friend... and I wouldn't be in dire lack of sleep ! XD

    ReplyDelete
  109. Images from the new HTTYD2 game on the web.

    ReplyDelete
  110. The goverment isn't great. They're all liberals, trying to get rid of our guns and self defense.

    ReplyDelete
  111. No idea where the Astrid one came from.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hookfang has 3 stages.
    1) Scary child
    2) TERRIFYINGLY AWKWARD PUBERTY STAGE
    3) Puberty did it right

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yet, I can tell I'm not here for nothing. I was pretty upset these last days, for numerous reasons, and since i read what Dean deBlois said (the "your weaknesses can be your strength" stuff), I feel a whole lot better ! It's almost magical !! I wanted you guys to know it.

    ReplyDelete
  114. :) I'm sure it's not that bad. Our government is trying to kill environment.

    ReplyDelete
  115. It's now 3:10 pm, but yeah, it's pm

    ReplyDelete
  116. Are you sure these are from the game..?

    ReplyDelete
  117. Wait, who got hundred?

    ReplyDelete
  118. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 6:10 PM

    I don't pay much attention to the government.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Yes they are from the new puzzle game

    ReplyDelete
  120. Oops, we didn't notice !

    ReplyDelete
  121. Or memorize game, idk what it is called in english xD

    ReplyDelete
  122. Hey if we haven't killed ourselves for this long of a wait for the film then I can see waiting the time to spoil as a miracle. XD

    ReplyDelete
  123. They have gotten rid of guns in some states, they don't care it's "unconstitutional". But they're not good.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Oh! I thought you meant the console game XD

    ReplyDelete
  125. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 6:13 PM

    Isn't Eret a another Snotlout? Personality wise.

    ReplyDelete
  126. It's very different where I live because guns have always been illegal (except if you have a licence)

    ReplyDelete
  127. Could be. Now will he have a real crush on Ruff or not ?...

    ReplyDelete
  128. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 6:14 PM

    Oh god, I hope not.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Oh well, it's just that they are dumping in the Great barrier Reef, and starting to mine. Yeah nothing big. Not to mention banning environmentalist protestors.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I think it is hinted at pretty strongly that this crush is one-sided. I'm pretty sure the wording leads us to think that Ruff is chasing Eret even though he's not interested.

    ReplyDelete
  131. That's horrible! What if someone breaks in? You can't defend yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  132. xD This is a childrens movie. I think we can do with Hiccstrid.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Here too and I not sad about it. In the USA it's complicated. If there wouldn't be so many illegal weapons / guns (so like here only with a licence), then a few . many people wouldn't need a gun for protecting themself

    ReplyDelete
  134. Does ring a bell, but I wasn't sure

    ReplyDelete
  135. Well here (and I think at mycove too) there isn't as much crime as in the USA. There you don't need a gun to protect yourself

    ReplyDelete
  136. Grab your dragon !
    No, seriously, I'm not sad either, because there are less accidents due to wrong use of guns

    ReplyDelete
  137. Hey mycove, I got you email. IT WAS PERFECT! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Probably, and I actually never think about not having a gun being a problem, it's normal here

    ReplyDelete
  139. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 6:18 PM

    Yeah, but I don't wan't him to get with Ruffnut!
    I hate the whole "Bad guy turns good" thing!
    Unless Ruffnut went with Eret and turned Evil.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Oh, thanks for letting me know, I'm so happy you liked it on the first shot !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  141. But still all people should have the right to, and what about shooting for fun?

    ReplyDelete
  142. If you want to go to America, you better start calling it 'Murica XD

    ReplyDelete
  143. No one actually thought of that yet!

    ReplyDelete
  144. 100th comment (I know I didn't want to do this anymore, but it's only the 100th comment ^^).
    So the 100th comment goes to the person with the lack of sleep with exact this comment xD
    http://www.berksgrapevine(.)com/2014/04/final-dragon-trailer-announced-new.html#comment-1319108386

    ReplyDelete
  145. Or Eret could use Ruff for his own purposes...

    ReplyDelete
  146. Or Eret eventually falls in love with her twin brother... sorry I had to do it !

    ReplyDelete
  147. I think this will happen. And maybe Erret will be the foe in HTTYD3

    ReplyDelete
  148. Yeah there are some stupid people who do use them wrong,

    ReplyDelete
  149. Well, I think this never happend in a child movie... But why not? *Imaging the Tuffnuts face when he knows that Erret fell in love of him* xD

    ReplyDelete
  150. xD I'll try.. 'Murica. Nope to hard. I'll stick with America for now.

    ReplyDelete
  151. The Togrutan DragonApril 4, 2014 at 6:22 PM

    Leaving now.

    ReplyDelete
  152. No way !!!! YESSSS !!
    You knew I'd be happy to know right ? XD
    Thx, you made my day, well, um night !

    ReplyDelete
  153. bye ! have a nice day !

    ReplyDelete
  154. Congrats. You got 100th comment! xD I'll get it next time. Just you see.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I agree... but that would be awesome !

    ReplyDelete
  156. Well you still can shoot for fun at the shooting range (maybe not previously convicted people, idk). You're just not allowed to have one in your house (ok here in Germany you are allowed but you have to put it in a safe AND you have to get the perimission to have it at home)

    ReplyDelete
  157. Maybe... I never thought of that, I saw him rather as a minor villain-who-is-not-such-a-bad-villain...

    ReplyDelete
  158. Even shooting range is not a popular hobby here... my bf does shoot, he's a fire fighter and loves guns. But apart from hunters, few people shoot for fun here.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Yes, and the children may more respect homosexual people. But maybe the parents wouldn't like it and that's also not good for DreamWorks... :-/

    ReplyDelete
  160. So now you have a reason to stay xD

    ReplyDelete
  161. Ok, I'll be waiting ! XD
    It was easy, I don't know where Nightshade is, but if he had been here, I sure he'd have gotten it.

    ReplyDelete
  162. We Americans have to have licences for concealed carry.

    ReplyDelete
  163. It's also not the popular here, but I just wanted to mention that it's still possible to shot for fun

    ReplyDelete
  164. And 10 minutes ago there were only 60 comments... wow

    ReplyDelete
  165. but I think licences can't be granted to everyone here

    ReplyDelete
  166. In a way, Hiccup was raised by 2 men, Stoick and Gobber... and it's not shocking at all.

    ReplyDelete
  167. And I was just about to ask you NOT to help me so I can find the will to go !! XD

    ReplyDelete
  168. Here in Germany you're not allowed to have a weapon if you are previously convicted. And I think you also have to make a "test". It must be sure that you don't want to use it to commit a crime

    ReplyDelete
  169. Yeah all we need are a few minutes !

    ReplyDelete
  170. Yes but Gobber was more a mentor as a father I think ^^

    ReplyDelete
  171. I would keep talking, but my Kindle is running out. Still friends, even though our countries are different, right?

    ReplyDelete
