New Seasons of DreamWorks DRAGONS to Take Flight on Netflix In 2015

Hiccup, Toothless and all their friends from the Island of Berk will fly onto Netflix as one of its original series for kids. All-new seasons of the award-winning series DreamWorks Dragons will be available to Netflix members in all territories, including France and Germany, beginning in spring 2015.

Based on DreamWorks Animation's hitHow to Train Your Dragonfilms, the new episodes bridge the gap between the first feature film and the much-anticipated sequelHow to Train Your Dragon 2, hitting theaters this summer. Weaving a continuous storyline, the television series works in tandem with the feature films and DVD specials, allowing fans to delve deeper into dragon lore. From the origin of Hiccup's new flight suit and the secrets of his dragon blade to the young Viking's budding romance with Astrid, DreamWorks Dragons on Netflix gives viewers rich details of the larger narrative with the introduction of new dragons, exotic places and worlds unknown.

Jay Baruchel and America Ferrera who voice the two young Viking heroes in the feature film return to the television series to voice Hiccup and Astrid, and are joined by Christopher Mintz-Plasse and TJ Miller who will reprise their roles as Fishlegs and Tuffnut in the series.

"The How to Train Your Dragon franchise has been incredible to work with," said Art Brown and Douglas Sloan, show runners on DreamWorks Dragons. "There is so much rich material available to us in theTV worldthat we can reallydig in and create a different yet complementary experience to the feature films."

"We are happy to be adding Dragons to our growing slate of original series for kids," said Cindy Holland, Netflix Vice President, Original Content."This is one of DreamWorks Animation's most beloved set of characters and we know that kids and families will be enjoying them for years to come."
