Watch: Trailer Drops for ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ Spin-Off Series


The How to Train Your Dragon franchise has become a beloved part of the animated lexicon — and it looks like it’s about to head into a new era.

Today, DreamWorks Animation announced Dragons: The Nine Realms, a new animated series that will be debuting on both Hulu and Peacock later this year. The series is the third to draw inspiration from the original How to Train Your Dragon films following DreamWorks Dragons and DreamWorks Dragons: Rescue Riders, and — most surprisingly — is set in the present day.

The announcement included a teaser trailer you can check out below.



In Dragons: The Nine Realms, which is set 1,300 years after the events of How To Train Your Dragon, dragons are now just a legend to the modern world. When a geological anomaly opens up an immense, miles-deep fissure in the Earth’s surface, scientists from all over the world gather at a new research facility to study the mysterious phenomenon. Soon a group of misfit kids, brought to the site by their parents, uncover the truth about dragons and where they’ve been hiding — a secret they must keep to themselves to protect what they’ve discovered.


Dragons: The Nine Realms will debut on Hulu and Peacock on Thursday, December 23rd.
