DreamWorks Animation

A big new trailer has arrived for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, giving us more of the final chapter in the trilogy that kicked off in 2010.

Might be best to take the tissues with you to the movies when seeing this one; it’s probably going to be one emotional ride. The third film finds Hiccup and Toothless having to leave the dragon utopia they helped create in order to stop a new villain who has dire plans for all of dragon kind. We also meet Light Fury – yep, Hiccup isn’t the only one of his kind.

The first two films were wonderful adventures, with gorgeous animation and plenty of heart. With franchise director and writer Dean DeBlois still at the helm, expect this stand-out CG-animated franchise to receive a fitting close. We can’t wait.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, featuring a voice cast that includes Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and Kristen Wiig, among others, will be arriving in Australia cinemas on 3 January 2019 and opening in US cinemas on 22 February 2019.

Official synopsis for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World:

From DreamWorks Animation comes a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown…and how nothing can ever train you to let go. What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic adventure spanning their lives.

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.


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 (Ratatouille, ANTZ) and Bonnie Arnold (Toy Story, How to Train Your Dragon,How to Train Your Dragon 2).
