The Art of How to Train Your Dragon 2
You already know that DreamWorks’ upcoming sequel to its hugely popular CG adaptation of Cressida Cowell’s dragon-riding world will involve high-flying feats, strange new lands, even stranger dragons and plenty of scaly situations. Now, just imagine how many incredible ideas, designs, creatures and locations the team dreamed up that never made it to the screen. With more than 300 paintings, drawings, sketches, models, stills, studies and storyboards to pore over, Sunshine’s definitive guide will take you on an artistic journey behind the scenes, from the ice caves of Berk to the fantastical flights of Hiccup and Toothless. An introduction by writer/director Dean DeBlois and foreword by Gerard Butler, the voice of Viking chief Stoick, don’t hurt either.
