Will there be a How to Train Your Dragon 4?
It’s unlikely that there will be a fourth film in the How to Train Your Dragon franchise.
As reported by Collider, the film’s director, Dean DeBlois, stated that spinoffs would be possible but a fourth film is pretty much off the cards.
He said: “I think I’ve talked [Jeffrey Katzenberg] down from that (laughs). There may be spinoffs to come, but my involvement and my dedication to completing a story that has a reason for being and a strong sense of integrity and three chapters I think is in place and intact. Everybody seems to be in agreement that we’re moving in the right direction.“
The third film rounds off the trilogy series and takes a deeper look at the dragon characters. There was, however, a short film, How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming, released in 2019 which is a holiday special spin-off following the third film.
