'How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World' Unleashes New Teaser Trailer And Poster

Along side the Kung Fu Panda movie franchise, How to Train Your Dragon takes the top spot for my all time favorite Dreamworks animated movies. I guess it's not only me as the franchise is going very strong with a third one coming out next year. The movie is titled How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World and this time the story will take us underground, but not totally away from all those soaring and flying adventures.

Dean DeBlois will once again take the directorial seat and scribe-master role of the movie. Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T. J. Miller, Kristen Wiig, Cate Blanchett, and Kit Harington will be reprising their roles and they will be joined by F. Murray Abraham to voice a character named Grimmel. Djimon Hounsou was reportedly said to return as well.

Check out the new trailer of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

And here is the official teaser poster of the movie released a week earlier.
