For years, we’ve been able to experience the relationship between men and dragons evolve to a symbiotic, thriving partnership in Dreamworks’ animated epic, How to Train Your Dragon. The first film took us on a brilliant adventure with Hiccup and Toothless building a friendship over kindness and a common enemy. The second one pushed the envelope in terms of action. Now, How to Train Your Dragon 3, labeled The Hidden World, explores the fruits of Hiccup, Toothless, and Astrid’s labor, peaceful civilization of Man and Dragon. While all might seem well, at the moment, it turns out the utopia they have created may be devolving. When a Dragon Hunter, of sorts, reveals his intentions to destroy everything Hiccup loves, unless he turns over Toothless (one of the last of the Night Furies), it causes the vikings we’ve followed across two movies and an entire series to fight back.
This is the first trailer for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World…
Now chief and ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, Hiccup has created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia. When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they’ve known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. As their true destines are revealed, dragon and rider will fight together—to the very ends of the Earth—to protect everything they’ve grown to treasure.
Dreamworks has always seemed to outdo themselves, especially when it comes to the graphics department. Movies like Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Megamind, and the Academy Award-nominated Boss Baby (let that sink in) have in some form or fashion pushed the envelope on what artists can achieve in motion pictures. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World seems to push those boundaries once again, as this trailer is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. What makes it better is that it includes a charming story of growth, love, action, and mystery, all things that have made the How to Train Your Dragon franchise memorable.
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World have a release date of March 1, 2019.
