Hiccup and Toothless are moving...
Coming Soon reports that new season of DreamWorks Dragons will start airing on Netflix in all territories (including France and Germany) in spring 2015. The series is based on the How To Train Your Dragon films and takes place between the first film and the sequel that arrives this summer. The series used to air on Cartoon Network.
Here's a synopsis: Weaving a continuous storyline, the television series works in tandem with the feature films and DVD specials, allowing fans to delve deeper into dragon lore. From the origin of Hiccup's new flight suit and the secrets of his dragon blade to the young Viking's budding romance with Astrid, "DreamWorks Dragons" on Netflix gives viewers rich details of the larger narrative with the introduction of new dragons, exotic places and worlds unknown.
Jay Baruchel (Hiccup), America Ferrera (Astrid), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fishlegs) and TJ Miller (Tuffnut) all reprise their roles.
Showrunners Art Brown and Douglas Sloan said: "'The How to Train Your Dragon' franchise has been incredible to work with. There is so much rich material available to us in the TV world that we can really dig in and create a different yet complementary experience to the feature films."
Netflix Vice President of Original Content Cindy Holland added: "We are happy to be adding 'Dragons' to our growing slate of original series for kids. This is one of DreamWorks Animation's most beloved set of characters and we know that kids and families will be enjoying them for years to come."
