Brian:  Gary, are you excited about How to Train Your Dragon 2?

Gary:  I am over the moon excited about How to Train Your Dragon 2.

Brian:  So you liked the trailer for it?

Gary:  I didn’t just like the trailer, I think I’ve watched it too many times.

Brian:  Really?

Gary:  Yeah.

Brian:  I liked the first film. I’m a little interested in the second one. I’m not super excited, but I really liked all the different, weird dragons they had, like new dragons.

Gary:  Yep, you have a family coming back together, you have all of his friends coming back and training other dragons.

Brian:  I have to say, I do like how they made the dragons kind of like cats as opposed to like lizards. They behave to me like cats do.

Gary:  And yet there are these epically huge dragons that are almost the size of mountains.

Brian:  You know the one thing I think the sequel needs that I didn’t see anything of in the trailer is Vikings and dragons versus ninjas.

Gary:  Yeah, I’m not sure if ninjas will find their way into this world. That may be in How to Fight a Dragon 3.

Brian:  Right? Am I right or not?

Gary:  Well, there are many books.

Brian:  It could be on sea serpents. But I’m excited for the movie.

Gary:  Oh man. I cannot wait for that movie.

Brian:  Me neither. You want to go see it together?

Gary:  Dude, let’s go see it!

Gary and Brian are ready to go see another new movie sequel: How to Train Your Dragon 2. Gary is especially excited for the new fantasy film and following the continuing story of the main characters, their families, and their friends. Brian’s more interested in seeing the new dragons.

Both Gary and Brian joke about how the movie could improve, based on the trailer. Brian suggests ninjas. Gary doesn’t think ninjas will appear in the second movie, but maybe they could in the third!

Gary’s excitement seems to motivate Brian to want to see the movie more than he originally did. The two friends make plans to watch it together when it comes out.

What do you think about How to Train Your Dragon 2? What new characters would you add to the movie?

I saw the “how to train your dragon 01” last year, and in my opinion it was pretty good which I enjoyed it. Even though I’ve not seen the 02 but based on the first one I think it would be great also. I need to carve out my time and manage my other activities to find a special opportunity to watch it bcz I’m so busy these days.

I can’t wait to watch the sequel. Since the first part of How to train your dragon went into the screan,  my doughter and me have learned to draw Teethless, made him of clay and so on. So we share Gary’s enthusiasm for the new adventures of favorite characters.

I’ m not a dragon coach, but I can grow a small dragon in jar. You know little dragons sold in a store, you put it in water and in a couple of days, you’ll get a huge dragon ready to take you into a fairy tale. I also like water-colour dragons: )

i never saw this anim but i saw a movie of a real story in the middle ages that looks like the story of this anim, werewolves and human vampires really existed between russia and asia…This movie tells a real story of famous traveller and explorer…but the reason he made the trips is distorted in the movie, actually he was just exploring, then vampires and werewolves cut his road…
