It seems we haven’t seen the last of Hiccup and Toothless after all as How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming, a holiday special, is set to air on NBC on December 3rd.
While How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World brought the story of the dragons of Berk to a close, it seems we’re not quite done with the story of Hiccup and Toothless just yet. Word has come out that a half hour holiday special entitled How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming will air on NBC at 8:30pm ET.
How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming will feature the return of Jay Baruchel as the voice of Hiccup, America Ferrera as Astrid, Gerard Butler as Stoick, Craig Ferguson as Gobber, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Fishlegs. Taking place just before the emotional epilogue from the last installment of the film trilogy – and 10 years after the end of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World – How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming opens with Hiccup and Toothless sharing stories of their special relationship with their respective families as they prepare for the Snoggletog Festival.
When it becomes clear that the new generation of Vikings doesn’t remember the bond between dragon and human, Hiccup makes a plan to celebrate dragons with a grand holiday pageant. This heartwarming idea leads to a series of hilarious and exciting events, but no matter the circumstance, everyone in New Berk – young and old alike – is reminded that dragons and humans are forever bonded.
After airing on NBC, How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming will be available on Hulu beginning December 5th, 2019. The special will also be available on DVD starting on December 3rd, 2019. The Digital and DVD versions come packed with special bonus features, including an inside look at the animation test featuring the breakout stars of the holiday special, the baby dragons known as Night Lights.
