With three boys in the house Dragons have certainly made their mark in our home. I guess it was only fitting that my boys love a dragon spilled over into their TV and gaming habits, leaving them all thrilled when DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk began to air on the Cartoon Netwrok as a spin-off series of the 2012 classic "How to Train Your Dragon." And now all the fun of Dragons: Riders of Berk will be yours to bring home.

DreamWorks Dragons: Riders of Berk arrives on two part DVD July 23 with exclusive codes for new online game called School of Dragons
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 16, 2013) – 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. The game will be available online July 17, and the mobile version will follow shortly thereafter. In addition, Comic-Con 2013 attendees will get early access to the DVD and more fun at the Fox booth (#4229). 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 http:www.schoolofdragons.com.
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.
The new second season of DreamWorks’ Dragons Defenders of Berk returns this Fall on Cartoon Network.
