‘How To Train Your Dragon’ Sequel Finally Has Details

without comments

It’s about time. The How To Train Your Dragon film was reported to be getting at least two more installments, making it a trilogy. Like many others, I’m weary of a sequel for such an amazing film. It is being reported that the sequels will branch off into new areas for Hiccup and Toothless to explore, instead of being on their island in the North Sea.

Co-director, Dean DeBlois, explains in some detail:

It’s going to be quite epic. We are treating How To Train Your Dragon as the first act in a much larger story. As we head into this one, 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. The only way of tracing the story is to draw on elements that were in the first movie and set up elements for a third movie, so it doesn’t feel like a random adventure with the same five or six characters. This truly is a second chapter in a larger story.

Producer Bonnie Arnold is also hinting at new dragons and some new characters. The film(s) are based off a series of books, and at 8 installments, I have no doubts they will run out of material to use for the sequels. Again, I’m still nervous of the outcome of any sequels… but I’m hoping for the best.
