Here’s the first trailer for Netflix’s ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ series
Hiccup and Toothless are coming to Netflix in June.
Netflix is continuing its media takeover with a series sequel to the How to Train Your Dragon movies. Titled Dragons: Race to the Edge, the animated series will run for 13 episodes, debuting on June 26.
Dragons: Race to the Edge follows Hiccup, Toothless, and their friends on a quest based on a device called the Dragon Eye, which this trailer suggests is some kind of magical viking movie projector. (Hey, it’s an animated dragon series, they can include a magical viking movie projector if they want.) It sounds like a familiar story to fans of the How To Train Your Dragon movies, as the heroes find a new group of dragons but are beset by rogue dragon hunters.
Both How to Train Your Dragon movies did well in theaters, and this Netflix series is far from the first spinoff. There are four short sequel movies overlapping with the two feature films, a TV series on Cartoon Network, and several video games. How to Train Your Dragon 3 is scheduled for 2018.
Dragons: Race to the Edge feels like a good choice for Netflix’s family programming. How to Train Your Dragon is one of those animated franchises that adults can enjoy as much as kids, but a Netflix series prevents parents from having to cue up the movies for the zillionth time. Plus, everyone loves a good dragon story.
