How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Trailer Unveiled

It's time to take a step inside the hidden world — How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, that is. Universal Pictures and DreamWorks Animation just dropped the first full-length trailer for the upcoming film, the third entry in the beloved action-fantasy franchise. 

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World sees Toothless meeting his "untamed, elusive" mate – the all-white, blue-eyed female Light Fury that's the perfect match for his black scales and big green eyes — and becoming the dragon leader of his kind, and Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) rising up as the village chief and ruler of Berk alongside Viking warrior Astrid (America Ferrera). The dynamic duo have finally discovered their true destinies, but as they ascend to assume their respective authorities, a dark threat tests their strength and threatens to break the bonds of their thought-to-be-invincible relationship. 

The trailer teases all of this and more, plus gives fans a peek at Toothless and Hiccup's common enemy — the Night Fury hunter Grimmel the Grisly (F. Murray Abraham) who wants to bring an end to Toothless, the prize that has eluded him for years. 

Directed by How to Train Your Dragon series helmer Dean DeBlois, The Hidden World has been described as the culmination of the franchise, completing the on-screen story that started with the first film in 2010 and continued with the sequel in 2014. DeBlois has made it crystal clear that The Hidden World is the final installment, and that the film will offer closure to its characters. "I wanted to give this a definitive end," he told USA Today

DeBlois added that his narrative is, of course, inspired by How to Train Your Dragon book series author Cressida Crowell, but differs in a big way. Where Crowell ended her collective story with her own reason as to why dragons can't be seen in the modern world, DeBlois will offer his personal explanation — plus answers to a few more questions Crowell didn't touch on.

"Our narratives are quite different. But we will explain why dragons have disappeared into legend," said DeBlois. "And there are still questions: Could dragons come back? Are dragons still around? All of these will be answered in the third film."

All of our How to Train Your Dragon franchise favorites are back for The Hidden World, including Cate Blanchett as Valka and Craig Ferguson as Gobber the Belch. Viewers will get to see (hear?) the voices of Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, and Kit Harington as well. 

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World will open on March 1, 2019.
