HICCUP AND TOOTHLESS No, it's not a dental issue.

Details Release Date: Jun 13, 2014; Genre: Animation; With: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler and Kit Harington; Distributor: Paramount Pictures

Hiccup, the clever boy who brokered peace between Vikings and dragons in 2010's CG-animated hit How to Train Your Dragon, is poised to enter a bigger world. While exploring new lands with his dragon, Toothless, he meets his long-lost mother (Cate Blanchett), a Dian Fossey of dragons — and battles dragon trappers hoping to build an evil fire-breathing army. He's also now a leather-clad 20-year-old. ''It's like the first time you see Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back and he's got that whole badass outfit on,'' says Jay Baruchel, who voices the gangly hero who made him an unlikely star among very young fans. ''When This Is the End came out,'' the actor recalls, ''so many kids on Twitter said, 'All I see is Hiccup swearing.'''
