GLENDALE, Calif., Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Hollywood's DreamWorks Animation says it is working on a 3D sequel to its blockbuster "How to Train Your Dragon."

Set for release in 2013, the second chapter in the franchise will again feature the voice talents of Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, TJ Miller and Kristen Wiig.

The sequel is being made under the creative guidance of Dean DeBlois, Chris Sanders and Bonnie Arnold. It is written and will be directed by DeBlois and produced by Arnold. Once again based on the book series by Cressida Cowell, the sequel is being executive produced by Sanders and DeBlois.

"Nothing could be more exciting for me than being charged with carrying this story forward, into the unknown reaches of Hiccup and Toothless' ever-expanding world," DeBlois said in a statement Monday, referring to the Viking and dragon featured in the first flick. "Ambitions are high with this epic next chapter, and together with an incredible team of filmmakers, we plan to build upon 'How to Train Your Dragon's' originality, boldness and heart, in hopes of once again touching audiences around the world."
