We figured we had seen the final of Dreamworks’ How To Prepare Your Dragon collection, on condition that cow had been milked till it was a skeleton. After three films, a number of TV reveals and some vacation specials, the story had gone far sufficient to indicate Hiccup and Astrid’s youngsters, and his reunion with Toothless as a bearded thirtysomething. That’s so far as you possibly can take it, proper?
Suppose once more. Dreamworks kicked the time machine into overdrive to supply Dragons: The 9 Realms, a brand new collection that takes place within the current day.
“How does that work?” you would possibly assume. “There are not any dragons right here, the final time I checked.” Yeah, so far as you already know. Seems they’ve been hiding all this time in a cavern deep beneath the Earth, which is bizarre conduct for creatures that prefer to fly, however Dreamworks actually actually wished this to occur, so…simply settle for it.
The hidden Dragon’s Cove remained undiscovered till lately, when an earthquake produced a fissure that supplied a pathway in a distant location. Desirous to discover the brand new discovery, a staff of scientists arrange a analysis facility close to the miles-deep crack, and introduced their households with them. It’s their kids that uncover the existence of dragons and grow to be the primary to fly them since Viking occasions.
Don’t hassle counting how a lot time will need to have handed between the final Hiccup-centered HTTYD story and now, as a result of Dreamworks did it for you: they are saying 1,300 years of time has handed. One would assume almost a millennium and a half can be sufficient time to wipe Toothless’ gene pool off the map, however our hero, launched within the quick teaser under, will get to experience a black and white combine. It’s clearly a Night time Fury/White Fury hybrid, marking it as Toothless’ descendant. Additionally, they’ve by no means established how lengthy dragons dwell. This mythic lizard may very well be his son.
Dragons: The Hidden Realm premieres on each Hulu and Peacock December 23. We’d say that is the final collection, however…in all probability not.
