This is it! The beginning of the end. Today we got the first trailer for the third and final film in the franchise, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. Drama, love and fun are abound in our first look at the film. And of course, dragons.

Hiccup has realized his dream of creating a dragon and viking uptopia. Living together in peace after years and years of fighting. But one night, Toothless discovers a female Fury, a Light Fury, and he’s instantly attracted to her. He does some silly mating dances to try to win her over, though she teleports away. Yup, apparently Light Furys can teleport! Things seem to be going great but utopia is about to break. Grimmel, a calm and villanous pirate, has come to hunt the final Night Fury and will destroy everything to get his way. Realizing the dragons are in trouble, the village needs to come together to save dragon-kind.

So what does this have to do with a Hidden World? It appears there’s an entire world of dragons hidden away from humans. And seeing how the beginning starts with Hiccup recounting that there were dragons when he was a boy, it may mean the dragons they’ve bonded with will have found a new home. What does this mean for Toothless and Hiccup’s relationship? We’ll have to see when the film comes out.

From DreamWorks Animation comes a surprising tale about growing up, finding the courage to face the unknown…and how nothing can ever train you to let go. What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic adventure spanning their lives. Welcome to the most astonishing chapter of one of the most beloved animated franchises in film history: How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. Now chief and ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, Hiccup has created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia. When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they’ve known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth. As their true destines are revealed, dragon and rider will fight together—to the very ends of the Earth—to protect everything they’ve grown to treasure.
