First How To Train Your Dragon 3 Trailer Takes Flight


Well, at long last, it looks like How To Train Your Dragon 3 – which will be subtitled The Hidden World – is about to take flight and spread its wings. It’s been a long time coming, too, as the last movie flew into theaters back in 2014 and it’s only now that we’re really getting our first look at the much anticipated threequel. But the new trailer is finally here and you can see it for yourself up above.

Promising another vibrant, colorful adventure, the teaser certainly has us excited, as we see Hiccup and Toothless (who’s as adorable as ever) come together once again for what appears to be a journey to discover their true destines. Living up to the previous entries in the franchise will certainly be tough, but if this new promo is any indication, it certainly looks as if we’re in for a real treat, with gorgeous animation and some genuinely funny moments teasing us with what’s to come.

Frankly, we get quite a lot to sink our teeth into here, too – especially considering that this is just the first trailer – and it’s nice to see that DreamWorks is starting to spin up the marketing campaign now. If you’re still eager for more, though, here’s the official plot synopsis:

What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic trilogy spanning their lives.  In this next chapter, Hiccup and Toothless will finally discover their true destinies: the village chief as ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, and the dragon as leader of his own kind.  As both ascend, the darkest threat they’ve yet faced—as well as the appearance of a female Night Fury—will test the bonds of their relationship like never before.

For How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, series director Dean DeBlois returns alongside the all-star cast.  The film is produced by Brad Lewis (RatatouilleANTZ) and How to Train Your Dragon series producer Bonnie Arnold (Toy StoryTarzan).

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is set to fly into theaters on March 1st, 2019, after being delayed numerous times, and will supposedly close out the franchise. Fans needn’t worry, however, as director Dean DeBlois has already teased that there could be some spinoffs to come in the future.
