Dan Sarto is Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Animation World Network.
Set 1,300 years after the events of How to Train Your Dragon, dragons are now just a legend to the modern world. When a geological anomaly opens an immense, miles-deep fissure in the Earth’s surface, scientists from all over the world gather at a new research facility to study the mysterious phenomenon. Soon a group of misfit kids, brought to the site by their parents, uncovers the truth about dragons and where they’ve been hiding — a secret they must keep to themselves to protect what they’ve discovered.
As described by the studio, in the new season, with Project ICARIS furthering expeditions deeper into the fissure, keeping dragons a secret is becoming increasingly harder for the Dragon Riders. Meanwhile Jun, D’Angelo and Alex are growing more suspicious of Tom and Thunder’s frequent solo quests, revealing Tom’s mission of uncovering his Viking heritage and mysterious connection with dragons
The new 7-episode season features the voice talent of Jeremy Shada; Julia Stiles; Marcus Scribner; Aimee Garcia; Ashley Liao; Lauren Tom; Keston John; Justina Machado; and D’arcy Carden. Haley Joel Osment guest stars in the new season.
