Viking twins Dak and Leyla are back with their dragon friends in season 2 of the DreamWorks Animation series Dragons Rescue Riders. The team is ready for even more adventures, and Parentology has an exclusive clip to give fans a peek at what’s ahead in the new season, which kicks off tomorrow on Netflix.
For those new to the series, here’s a bit of back-story. After tragedy strikes, siblings Dak and Leyla are adopted by five friendly dragons. Raised by the dragons, twins Dak (Nicolas Cantu of The Amazing World of Gumball, Sofia The First, Lego Star Wars) and Leyla (Brennley Brown, a semi-finalist on The Voice, Sofia The First, Tangled: The Series) are fluent in the dragons’ language and consider the dragons their family.
Voicing the young dragons are Zach Callison (Steven Universe, The Goldbergs, Just Add Magic) as Winger, Skai Jackson (Jessie, Bunk’d, Bubble Guppies, The Smurfs) as Summer, Andre Robinson (Hotel Transylvania 2, Doc McStuffins) as Cutter, and Noah Bentley (Adam Ruins Everything, Reel Kids, Afternoon Delight) as Burple.
Together, the throng of friends ventures out to defend and protect other dragons in their home of Huttsgalor. Along the way, they discover new dragons and learn myriad lessons, such as learning to trust your instincts to never judging a book by its cover.
Dragons Rescue Riders, part of the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, is aimed toward little ones under age 10 with its engaging tales and cute dragons. Speaking to the franchise on IMDB were fans like jaldridge 1705 who wrote, “This show makes them [HTTYD episodes] more accessible for younger children who might not appreciate those themes in the original trilogy as much as older children do.”
For those who fall in love with this dragon world, they can check out other components of the HTTYD franchise, which currently consists of three animated films, four TV/streaming series, five short films, along with collections of comics and graphic novels.
