Teletoon is soon to become home to some fire-breathing reptiles and their trainers when DREAMWORKS DRAGON: RIDERS OF BERK premieres on November 3. HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON is easily one of DreamWorks’ best animated films, so the spin-off television series has a lot to live up to!
RIDERS OF BERK will continue where the film left off. The trainers are met with new challenges and will have to face new dragons while learning how to work with their own. Jay Barchuel, America Ferrera and others will be reprising their original roles for this exciting new show.
The show will follow the adventures of Hiccup and his dragon Toothless on the Viking island of Berk. Alongside other dragon trainers, Hiccup discovers his dragon's unique powers, battles villains and explores a new worlds.
The adventure starts with episode one, "How to Start a Dragon Academy", where Hiccup is given the duty of introducing dragons to the village of Berk. He must calm the storm when his rowdy friends upset the village elder.
You can catch two back-to-back episodes of RIDERS OF BERK on Saturday, November 3 at 8 p.m. on Teletoon right after a special airing of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON. Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. will become the show’s regular airtime starting on November 8. Be sure to tune in to catch up with your favourite Vikings!
