Written by Dean DeBlois and Richard Hamilton, "The Serpent's Heir" begins mere hours after the events of How to Train Your Dragon 2 as Hiccup and Toothless are thrust into their new roles as chief and alpha!
Announced at New York Comic Con Friday, Dark Horse Comics
Series launches in 2016 with 'The Serpent's Heir,' co-written by the writer/director of the original movies.
and DreamWorks Animation are teaming up for a new series of graphic novels based on the How to Train Your Dragon franchise, starting with next year's How to Train Your Dragon: The Serpent's Heir.
The new series will be co-written by Dean DeBlois, writer and director on the HTTYD movies, and Richard Hamilton, writer of Dragons: Race to The Edge, with cover artwork by Pierre-Olivier Vincent, production designer on How to Train Your Dragon 2. The interior artist for the project has yet to be named by Dark Horse.
"These graphic novels mark an exciting expansion for the riders of Berk, offering the first glimpse into what happens to Hiccup, Toothless and the other Vikings following the conclusion of the second film," DeBlois told THR about the series. "These stories open up for the riders to discover new lands, meet new heroes and villains and encounter never before seen dragons on new adventures. Most excitingly, these novels are moving into a time we haven’t yet explored across any format."
"The great thing about Dragons is that it's uniquely built for comics, which is a testament to Dean's work in the films and Cressida Cowell's phenomenal book series," Hamilton added. "It has such compelling characters, tons of action, and a deep, rich lore that's ideal for serialized storytelling. And the reason why comics are great for Dragons is that they really free us up to tell different kinds of stories. We have the best artists and animators in the business working on the films and TV episodes, but they have to be mindful of budgets and runtimes. And certain things, like snow and water interaction, are incredibly expensive to animate. Not so with comics, so look for some intense arctic and underwater adventures very, very soon in the books."
The first book in the series, The Serpent's Heir, "picks up in the hours following the conclusion of How to Train Your Dragon 2," DeBlois teased. "Berk’s Dragon Riders must answer an earthquake-plagued island’s distress call. Along the way, they meet new dragons and a disturbing enemy, all while Hiccup and Toothless are growing into their roles of Chief and Alpha."
But that doesn't mean that the greater mythology of the franchise won't be explored in the comics, Hamilton revealed. "We will absolutely be diving into the back stories of a lot of our characters, both human and dragon, good and evil," he said. "Enriching the characters' backstories lets us provide new context and meaning to their adventures in the films and TV. And, if we do our jobs right, it'll also plant the seeds for their brand-new adventures in the graphic novels, too."
Vu que je n'ai pas tout compris de l'article j'ignore si le sujet et bien place sur le forum, on verra.^^
Appartement ça serait des "graphic novels" (livres illustrés ?), mais l'originalité c'est que l'histoire se situerait après Dragons 2 et que Dean fait partie de l'écriture.
Vous avez compris quoi d'autre ? Par ce que moi et l'anglais....
