I’ve posted updates about this recently, and I’m sure everyone’s as excited as I am to hear that How To Train Your Dragon will only be the first in a Viking trilogy, but even better! ComingSoon.net has some insight into the next film from Dean DeBlois (who co-directed with Chris Sanders, both of these talented men are the genius force behind Lilo & Stitch) and producer Bonnie Arnold.
“As we head into this one,” he explains, “the world expands. Everything is much bigger with still the heartfelt qualities that made the first one resonate so much with audiences. There are no longer restrictions to this tiny island in the North Sea. They have the entire Northern hemisphere within their grasp.”
They expect the film to arrive sometime in 2013 – can’t wait!
Is it possible that one of the biggest movies in recent years, How To Train Your Dragon, may be just the first in a three part series of films? Screenrant tells us more:
The meek but capable Viking Hiccup (voice of Jay Baruchel) and his loyal companion, the Night Fury dragon Toothless, captivated audiences last year in DreamWorks’ 3D animated feature, How To Train Your Dragon, which currently has both a sequel and spin-off TV show in development.
HTTYD co-director Dean DeBlois will helm How To Train Your Dragon 2 on his own and has dropped a few tidbits about how the followup will differ in terms of scope and setting, and where it fits into the overarching narrative concerning Hiccup’s journey towards manhood.
