About the DVD's
Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment announces the DVD release of the Annie Award® winning TV series DreamWorks DRAGONS: RIDERS OF BERK. The two-part DVD will be available everywhere July 23. Loaded with exciting bonus content for the whole family to enjoy, disc one will contain episodes 1-11 and disc two will feature episodes 12-20. 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. 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

To kick-off the release of the game and DVDs, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and JumpStart have big plans for Comic-Con in San Diego. The DVDs will be available for purchase at the Fox booth before they hit retailers as well as exclusive Toothless Night Fury figurines from Spin Master. For even more fun, dragon lovers can take DreamWorks School of Dragons for a test flight at the Fox and JumpStart booths while fans outside the convention center may spot the Deadly Nadder from the Live Spectacular show.

My Take on the DVD's
Both of these two DVD's are great and jump in where the movie leaves off. Thus, if you enjoyed the movie I have to say that you will love these two DVD's as well. I had not seen this on television, so my daughters and I were excited to check it out. So far we have watched a number from both DVD's and they were a ton of fun and the artists did a great job with the CGI too. Some people might want all of the episodes on on DVD, but seeing that this is not the fact, DVD #1 has 11 episodes and DVD #2 has 9. Both DVD's have great episodes that will keep you and your kids entertained for some time.

On Disc 1 you will find the following:

  1. How to Start a Dragon Academy
  2. Viking for Hire
  3. Animal House
  4. The Terrible Twos
  5. In Dragons We Trust (part 1 of a 2 part episode)
  6. Alvin and The Outcasts (part 2 of a 2 part episode)
  7. How to Pick Your Dragon
  8. Portrait of Hiccup as a Buff Man
  9. Dragon Flower
  10. Heather Report Part 1
  11. Heather Report Part 2 

On Disc 2 you will find:

  1. Thawfest
  2. When Lightning Strikes 
  3. What Flies Beneath
  4. Twinsanity
  5. Defiant One
  6. Breakneck Bog
  7. Gem of a Different Color
  8. We Are Family Part 1
  9. We Are Family Part 2 
All-in-all both of these DVD's were great and for anyone that is already a fan of the books or movie, you will love this series! I highly encourage that you check these out today!
