It looks like Dreamworks might be giving Pixar a run for its money in the “animated films that will make you cry” category as they have just released the first trailer for the third and final film in the How To Train Your Dragon trilogy. Over the year’s, we’ve watched Hiccup go from just a little kid to the leader of his village, and along the way we’ve watched his friendship with Toothless, his trusty dragon, blossom. In the new movie, we’ll see Toothless find out that he’s not as along in the world as he once thought, and we’ll also see Hiccup in crisis as dragon hunters seek to rid the world of Toothless’ kind.
The trailer is filled with action, laughs, and more than a few touching moments. If this movie is as good as it’s two predecessors, it could put the How To Train Your Dragon franchise into history as one of the best-animated film series ever made.
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.
