Considering the success that How to Train your Dragon achieved, the announcement of a sequel back in April should have been no surprise to anyone. With the release of the DVD coming soon, Dreamworks has released some details as to the new film's line-up and creative team:
The second chapter to the critically acclaimed 2010 blockbuster, How to Train Your Dragon – which has grossed nearly $500 million at the worldwide box office – will again feature the all-star voice talents of Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, TJ Miller and Kristen Wiig.
The sequel is being made under the creative guidance of Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders, and Bonnie Arnold. It is written and directed by DeBlois and produced by Arnold. Once again based on the book series by Cressida Cowell, the sequel is executive produced by Sanders and DeBlois.
My feelings on stereoscopic cinema are well documented on this blog. However, I have to admit that I did not catch Dragon in the theaters when it was out. The reports I've heard speak well of the stereo-work.
I look forward to purchasing the DVD and watching the film, albiet in two-dimensional squalor. I also look forward to 2013 when I can support our members by going to see the second installment of this story while donning the dimensional goggles.
