First teaser trailer for DreamWorks How To Train Your Dragon 2: watch now

The first teaser trailer for How To Train Your Dragon 2 has been unleashed online, and it’s rather gorgeous to look at.

Rather than giving away any plot details, the teaser shows Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon, Toothless, soaring from the sea to above the clouds in one astonishing sequence.

The animation is stunning, with the scene promising to look incredible in 3D (the first film making good use of the format for the aerial action).

If you stick with the clip until the end, you’ll notice that Hiccup looks a bit older, suggesting that at least a few years have passed since the time of the original film.

Watch the teaser trailer below now:

How To Train Your Dragon 2
is set to open in the UK on 4 July 2014.
