How to Train Your Dragon will most likely be turned into a triology
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
One of the surprising hits for me last year was the DreamWorks animated film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON. It had great characters, a fun story and a lot of heart. It did really well at the box office and has garnered many awards and nominations, so it’s really no surprise that a sequel will be around, well actually a trilogy. The DreamWorks team has already started on a sequel and have given a few details about it. Director Dean DeBlois says:
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.
No word yet on when the second film in the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON series will be out in theaters, but expect no sooner than 2012. DreamWorks always has a couple of films in the que, but since this particular film did so well they’ll probably start production on it sooner rather than later.
