We are no more than 17 days away from the Netflix premiere of DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge. As expected, we are starting to receive more clips and images that give us a more solid idea of what to expect from the season. This time, we have our first official look at one of the new dragons to appear in Race to the Edge: The Snow Wraith.
Courtesy of the official How to Train Your Dragontumblr, we have our first complete look at the Snow Wraith down below:
Three weeks ago, we reported on an image of what appeared to be an early toy design of the Snow Wraith. As it turns out, it looked pretty close to the official design (despite the lack of finalized texture).
According to the ‘Dragonpedia’ on the official How to Train Your Dragon website, the Snow Wraith is a Strike Class dragon with a thermal vision that allows it to track its prey in blustery weather, specifically blizzards and snowstorms. In the Dragons universe, the Snow Wraiths live on Glacier Island, where the species have gradually evolved to adapt to the island’s harsh and desolate conditions. As such, the island remains their only known habitat. These dragons were first discovered by Gothi during an expedition on Glacier Island. The Snow Wraiths play a crucial role in the journeys of the Dragon Riders, as their teeth can be used as a tool to unlock the mysterious Dragon Eye device.
DreamWorks also released a brand new clip from the show on its Youtube channel, showing the Snow Wraith in action as the Dragon Riders try to confront it.
You can watch it down here:
As you can tell, the Snow Wraith moves surprisingly fast for a dragon of its size. Combined with the fact that it has no known vulnerabilities and it rates high on the stealth scale, the Snow Wraith looks to be an interesting addition to the overall hierarchy of dragon species, especially since we now know that they are related to the overall mystery surrounding the Dragon Eye.
Dragons: Race to the Edge premieres exclusively for Netflix on June 26.
