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:
