Five years after young Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) tamed his dragon, Toothless, Vikings and the flying creatures live together peacefully on the island of Berk. But that’s not the case everywhere; as Hiccup and Toothless explore the world beyond their home, they discover a cave with hundreds of new wild dragons – and a ruthless hunter (Djimon Hounsou) who would exploit their firepower for evil ends. Featuring the voice talents of Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, America Ferrera and Craig Ferguson, this exciting computer-animated adventure combines the humor and heart of the original with a more mature outlook and some truly spectacular visuals.
