Now available to own from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is Dreamworks Dragons: Defenders of Berk Part 2, continuing the adventures of the beloved characters from 2010's How To Train A Dragon. The two-disc set features ten exciting episodes, along with the special features of Dragon Tracker Part 4, Evolution Of The Skrill, "Here Comes The Fire" Dragon Mash-Up and World of Dreamworks Animation.

Defenders of Berk Part 2 picks up with the conclusion A View to a Skrill Part 2, as Hiccup, Ruffnut, and Tuffnut come up with a plan to rescue the Skrill from Alvin the Treacherous. The second season continues with Snotlout believing that he is going to die after seeing "The five signs of Valhalla." Hiccup, Toothless, Fishlegs and the twins try to help an injured Scauldron on Changewing Island.

Speed Stingers invade Berk and freezes everything in sight. Astrid and Snotlout must switch dragons for a day. Hiccup and Fishlegs try to save Toothless from the dragons' version of Eel Pox. Smothering Smokebreaths attack Berk. The Dragon Academy tries to train three baby Thunderdrums. All of this leads to the two-part season finale, where Hiccup must put his faith in Alvin the Treacherous to help stop Dagur from invading Berk.

  1. A View to a Skrill Part 2
  2. The Flight Stuff
  3. Free Scauldy
  4. Frozen
  5. A Tale Of Two Dragons

Animated television series that are a spinoff of feature films are mostly major let downs with watered down animation, new voice actors and are overall generally not very good. Dreamworks Dragons happens to be an exception, as most of the voice-cast have returned and the computer animation is topnotch. Defenders of Berk, as well as Riders of Berk, aired on the Cartoon Network. A third season titled Masters Of Berk, will air next year exclusively on Netflix and will be set after this summer's How To Train A Dragon 2, which is set five years after the first film. The final ten episodes of the second season featured on the two-disc collection are filled with humor and adventure. Both kids and adults will have fun watching Dragons: Defenders of Berk Part 2 while they eagerly wait for the second film to hit theaters.
