While 2010's "How to Train Your Dragon" focused heavily on the relationship between Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his dragon, Toothless, its follow-up lets other characters get in on the fun, too.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 - Dragons and Riders

In a new featurette from "How to Train Your Dragon 2," premiering today exclusively on Moviefone, the film's stars -- including Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, and Craig Ferguson -- discuss their characters' interactions with their respective dragons, and how each one represents what Blanchett calls a "symbiotic relationship."

Interspersed with clips from the film, the actors note how the film's dragons are direct reflections of their trainers. Ferrara says her character Astrid's dragon, Stormfly, is Astrid's "friend, partner, [and] confidant, and they put each other's lives in their hands."

Of "Dragon 2"'s expanded focus on a host of the winged creatures, Ferguson says that the audience is in for a treat.

"It's a whole new world of dragons," he said. "We really just scratched the surface [in the first film]."

"How to Train Your Dragon 2" hits theaters on June 13.
