As I am working on a new editorial piece for you all to chew on, Yahoo has debuted the first trailer for DreamWorks’ next animated feature How To Train Your Dragon featuring a voice cast made up of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill and Craig Ferguson and directed by Lilo and Stitch helmers Christopher Sanders and Dean DeBlois.
The film is due in theaters on March 26, 2010 and centers on a Viking teenager named Hiccup (Baruchel) who lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. His smarts and offbeat sense of humor don’t sit too well with his tribe or its chief… who just happens to be Hiccup’s father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he encounters (and ultimately befriends) an injured dragon, his world is flipped upside down, and what started out as Hiccup’s one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.
