"DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk" Brings High-Flying,
Fire-Breathing Fun to Cartoon Network Tuesday, Sept. 4

New Animated Series Inspired By Beloved Feature Film, How To Train
Your Dragon


p.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network. The Academy Award(R)-nominated film,
How To Train Your Dragon, which grossed approximately $500 million at
the worldwide box office and opened as the #1 film in over 30
countries, serves as the launching pad for the third episodic
television series from DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. (Nasdaq: DWA)
and its first-ever on Cartoon Network.

This weekly animated series follows the continuing adventures of
Hiccup and his dragon Toothless on the Viking island of Berk, along
with the band of dragon trainers, all of whom now have dragons of
their own! Through their training, the kids develop special bonds with
their dragons by learning about each dragon's unique powers,
discovering entirely new species and battling against new villains as
they explore whole new worlds they never dreamed existed.

DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk features an all-star line-up of
voice talent, including Jay Baruchel (Hiccup), America Ferrera
(Astrid), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fishlegs) and T.J. Miller
(Tuffnut), all of whom are original cast members from the feature
film, which was among the top ten movies at the global box office in
2010. In addition, Tim Conway (Mulch), Chris Edgerly (Gobber), Mark
Hamill (Alvin the Treacherous), Julie Marcus (Ruffnut), Nolan North
(Stoick), Zach Pearlman (Snotlout), Stephen Root (Mildew) and Tom
Wilson (Bucket) voice main characters throughout the series.

DreamWorks Animation's much-anticipated sequel to How To Train Your
Dragon is scheduled to be released in theaters on June 20, 2014.

DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk is produced by DreamWorks Animation
SKG, Inc. Art Brown and Douglas Sloan are show runners. The series is
co-executive produced by Sandra Rabins. Anthony Bell serves as
supervising director.

I forgot about this series.  I guess this is as good as an excuse as any 
to finally watch the movie again...right after Tron.
