One of the CYaN staff’s favorite animated movie of the past few years is DreamWorks Animations’ How to Train Your Dragon. The movie caught us by surprise at how wonderful and mature the story was told.
Today; we’re shown the evolution of the world and story with the full trailer of How to Train Your Dragon 2.
Fly past the jump to watch the trailer and a few initial thoughts.
Chris Sanders, director of Lilo and Stitch and How to Train Your Dragon, has a new movie set to come out early next year called the Croods. Check out the trailer.
Here’s a couple deleted scenes from Lilo and Stitch that show Lilo’s interaction with tourists and the fate of everyone’s favorite peanut butter-eating fish.
I am a big constituent for traditional media. I prefer practical effects in movies and love to death hand-drawn 2D animation. But I will admit that there are times when the CG work that goes into some movies are on par with traditional media, especially from certain studios.
One of those studios happens to be DreamWorks, who have done some fantastic work which include How to Train Your Dragon and Despicable Me.
They seem to trying to outdo themselves, as well as any other studio. Slated to come out in 2014, Me and My Shadow looks to combine hand-drawn and CG animation. This has been done before, especially in the early days of CG animation. The thing that really set this off for me is the style. It looks absolutely beautiful. The shadows will be hand-drawn, while the characters will be CG. Besides the improper use of grammar, I will be looking forward to this with much fervor.
Here, take a look at their first promotional poster.
