In our family, we enjoy watching movies and one that we really enjoyed was How to Train Your Dragon.  Based on the DreamWorks Animation Academy Award-nominated hit movie, How to Train Your Dragon, comes the DVD release of Dragons: Riders of Berk (Disc 1 and 2).  This two-part DVD was released on July 23rd  and is just as cute as the original How to Train Your Dragon.  Plus, these discs are loaded with exciting bonus content for the whole family to enjoy and features original voice talent from the film including Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Zack Pearlman, and more.

When you purchase the DVD set, you will be able to unlock exclusive content in DreamWorks’ School of Dragons – an all-new game from JumpStart that is based on DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon franchise.  The game became available on July 17th, with the mobile version to follow shortly.  That’s some high-flying fun!

This two-part DVD set is packed with special features that dive deeper into the world of Dragons. As a bonus, each DVD comes with a code to unlock an ultimate battle pack – and in select DVDs an exclusive Whispering Death or Thunderdrum dragon – for the DreamWorks’ School of Dragons game. School of Dragons lets players enter the world of Berk, where Hiccup, Toothless and other friends help players become the finest dragon trainers around. With cinema-like graphics and an immersive 3D world, it takes more than courage to train a dragon, but brains as well.   The new second season of DreamWorks’ Dragons Defenders of Berk returns this Fall on Cartoon Network.  For more information, visit http:www.schoolofdragons.com.

DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk DVD Features:
● World of DreamWorks
● Dragon Tracker Part 1
● Evolution of Thunderdrum
● “Heavy Metal” Dragon Mash-Up
● Sneak Peeks 

Hiccup, Astrid, and the other teens at the Dragon Academy show us a bit about what it was like to live as a Viking, but there is so much more to know! Come take a look at this quick and easy guide to some of the most important facts about Viking life.

When it comes to action and excitement, the sky’s the limit in this high-flying animated adventure based on the Academy Award®-nominated hit movie How To Train Your Dragon!

Dragons Perk 1

Vikings at Sea

Not all Vikings travel by dragon like they do in Berk! Vikings built great, big boats called longships for war. Each one could carry at least 60 men! Even though they were so large, Viking longships were designed to be speedy and could move through the water much faster than other boats. 

Dragons Perk 2

Viking Clothes

Vikings from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden dress a lot like Vikings from Berk, but with more layers. To stay warm in the cold winters, Vikings wore clothes made of wool, animal skin, or linen and shoes made of thick leather or goatskin.  In battle, they wore helmets made of leather or iron. 

Dragons Perk 3

Viking Homes

Vikings really knew how to make the most of their surroundings! Houses were built of stone, mud, and blocks of turf.  They made thatched roofs from woven sticks covered in mud. Vikings probably wouldn’t let dragons sleep in their houses the way Toothless does!

Dragons Perk 4

Viking Children

The Vikings in Berk get to go to the Dragon Academy to learn about how to become better dragon trainers. Instead of going to school, real Viking kids stayed home to help their parents work. Even without school and books, children could learn about history through songs and stories passed down from the older members of the town.

Dragons Perk 5

Viking Food 

The dragons in Berk eat fish, veggies, and bread given to them by their riders. Vikings ate similar foods, but also enjoyed meat from farm animals or wild animals that they would hunt. They drank out of wooden cups or drinking horns. Sometimes they had feasts for festivals that would last over a week!
