Tyler Perry's How to Train Your Dragon Too

Well, I suppose this was inevitable:

(via /Film)
Today, Dreamworks Animation announced its earnings for the first quarter of 2010. Not that much to report, but there is one tidbit that will be heartening for fans of How To Train Your Dragon: Hot on the heels of Dragon again winning the weekend box office in its fifth week, Dreamworks is making a sequel to the film, which will hit theaters in 2013. 
As much as I love, love, LOVE "How To Train Your Dragon" and, considering the frequency that I listen to the soundtrack (particularly while writing and jogging), you'd think I'd be a bit more excited about this.  But there are so many ways they could screw this one up. The advertising campaign for the original movie was simply awful (I had zero interest in this film and only saw it after hearing about it repeatedly on /Film) and my fear is that the same suits who nearly sunk an excellent film might be in charge of the sequel.

We'll see.
