The Cartoon Network series based on DreamWorks Animation's film How to Train Your Dragon
Art Brown and Doug Sloan and DreamWorks Animation Creative Executive Peter Gal were on hand to give attendees the run down on the Cartoon Network series based on DreamWorks Animation's film How to Train Your Dragon. The show will run for two seasons, or five years in Cartoon Network terms, in September leading into the 2014 theatrical release of How to Train Your Dragon 2.
Much of the original voice cast will be returning to the show as Jay Baruchel will reprise his role of Hiccup as well as America Ferrera, T.J. Miller and Christopher Mintz-Passe. New coming to the show is Mark Hamill as the big bad for season 1 as well as Tim Conway in an undisclosed role.
Dragons: Riders of Berk will deal with a dragon training academy led by Hiccup. Over the two seasons, the series will introduce new dragons, new villains and expand the world and powers of the dragons.
