The first trailer for The Dragon Prince Season 2 is here, and it shows off some of what fans can expect in the show's sophomore season, including its new, smoother animation style.
The trailer reveals more about our heroes' quest to return the young dragon, Zym, home to his mother, which will almost certainly take priority in the upcoming season. Although there are a number of dark and foreboding moments in the trailer, the footage isn't all serious, as it contains a lot of instances of humor.
Despite positive reviews, some have criticized Dragon Prince's animation, which features a blend of CGI and cel-shaded animation. The production opted for an intentionally lowered frame rate to make the combined animation appear more real to viewers. Not all responded positively to that choice. As a result of feedback on the show's framerate, co-creators and showrunners Aaron Ehasz and Justin Richmond mentioned last year that the animation style may be more fluid in future seasons, and it seems that is indeed the case.
Featuring the voices of Jack DeSena as Callum, Sasha Rojen as Ezran, Paula Burrows as Rayla, Jesse Inocalla as Soren, Racquel Belmonte as Claudia, Luc Roderique as King Harrow of Katolis and Jason Simpson as Viren, The Dragon Prince Season 1 is available now on Netflix. Season 2 will debut on Feb. 15.
