As a Fox Home Entertainment Insider my family had a chance to review the new Dragons Riders of Berk Part 1 and Part 2 DVD’s.  I have to say that the boyz are loving them!  They are huge fans of the How To Train Your Dragon movie, and these episodes expand on their love of the franchise.  The Part 1 disc holds episodes 1-11 and Part 2 has episodes 12-20.  These are jam packed with special features and tons of viewing entertainment.  They are available in store now, but be sure to check out the giveaway at the end of this post!

Based on the DreamWorks Animation Academy Award®-nominated hit movie How to Train Your Dragon, the series features original voice talent from the film including Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Zack Pearlman, and more.

Fans that purchase the DVD will be able to unlock exclusive content in DreamWorks’ School of Dragons, the all-new game from JumpStart based on DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon franchise. The game will be available online July 17, and the mobile version will follow shortly thereafter. In addition, Comic-Con 2013 attendees will get early access to the DVD and more fun at the Fox booth (#4229). When it comes to action and excitement, the sky’s the limit in this high-flying animated TV series.

The two-part DVD set is jam-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. For more information, visit http:www.schoolofdragons.com.

 

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.

Kid’s Guide to Vikings!


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.


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.


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!


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.


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.
