In order to keep helping the toy industry vendors we meet at events such as The Toy Insider and TTPM, its good to keep on posting the trailers for animated features whenever possible. Fortunately for me as a creative, with company’s like Disney, Pixar and of course Dreamworks, the possibilities are endless. That being said here is the first official trailer for the Dreamworks feature “How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” which was just unveiled a few short days ago. Let’s watch.
The Plot: One year after defending Berk from Drago, Hiccup and Toothless continue to rescue captured dragons in order to bring them back to Berk and create a bustling dragon and human utopia. Unfortunately, their efforts have also resulted in the island becoming severely overpopulated with dragons. In a response to the overcrowding, Hiccup desires to find the “Hidden World”, a safe haven for dragons that his late father Stoick told him about. Meanwhile, a white Fury dragon, held captive by warlords, is given to infamous dragon hunter Grimmel the Grisly as bait for him to capture Toothless for the warlords’ use as an alpha. (c/o Wiki).

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Before I said anything else, I must state that I was amazed that such a long trailer was delivered more than half a year away from the time of release but its good that we have it because like I said, content 🙂 This looks like a whole lot of family fun but sadly I need to bow out of seeing this one anytime soon because I’ve never seen the first and second film in the franchise. What about you readers? Did you see the earlier installments and will you be bringing along the little ones to see how the story closes out? Please chime in down below in the comments section if you like. I’m fairly certain we will get another trailer before the release date so stay tuned for that and a whole lot of other things as we continue to push the envelope here on “The Chronicles” of Piercing Ken. Ciao for now.
