It’s been five years since Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid (America Ferrera), Snotlout (Jonah Hill) and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons. Parents, keep a listen out for Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, Kristen Wiig, and Djimon Hounsou, who also lend their voices to Dragon characters. Rated PG.
