Only 26 days until How to Train Your Dragon 2 is in theaters!
There’s been a ton of How to Train Your Dragon 2 news recently. The movie was shown at the Cannes Film Festival this past week. Even Toothless attended!
Yesterday Jay Baruchel (Hiccup) tweeted what an honor (he spelled it “honour” because he’s Canadian) it was to have been part of the event. When Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fishlegs) asked how it went, Jay said “It fucking destroyed!” adding the film received a 5-10 minute standing ovation!
IMDB has video interviews with the stars, director, producer, and several other people involved with the film, including my beloved John Powell,who—because it can’t be said enough—was robbed of an Oscar for film score! John informs us that bagpipes are the only instrument (that he’s aware of) created to threaten, i.e., as a signal of war, which is why they’re so loud.
Speaking of music, three songs from the movie’s new soundtrack have been released, as well as a couple new clips. Berk’s Grapevine has a post that, in addition to those interviews mentioned above, has two new clips from the movie. I dare you not to cry at the first one!
How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens June 13th, a week before my birthday. I’ve already informed my friends that my birthday present be to see the movie in IMAX 3D. (I’m ok with waiting a week to let the young ‘uns—and teenagers—have their go with it.)
I could not possibly love the original How to Train Your Dragon more than I already do. Ditto for the soundtrack. But then, if you follow me, you know of my love for dragons, and especially this wonderful Night Fury.
