How to Train Your Dragon 4 Release Date & Casting Updates
When it came out over ten years ago, How to Train Your Dragon was a huge hit. Hiccup and Toothless’s adventures in the Viking village of Berk spark the imaginations of people worldwide. Let’s look at a possibility of a continued movie set in the time of the Vikings.
How to Train Your Dragon 4 Release Date
According to Hollywood Reporter, How to Train Your Dragon, initially produced by Universal/DreamWorks Animation, will be remade into a live-action film with director/writer/producer Dean DeBlois (who has been nominated for three Academy Awards and won a Golden Globe for his work on the franchise) at the helm. The movie will debut in theatres on March 14, 2025. Casting for the film is also in the works.
There are no other major releases scheduled for that day at this time. It is currently unclear if this would be a remake of the 2010 film or an entirely new story set in the same universe, including either humanized versions of the familiar characters we already know and love or introducing a whole new cast of protagonists, as several of the TV episodes have done.

Is it going to be a sequel to the trilogy?
It is not confirmed yet. However, it is likely that it won’t be a sequel but a new live-action movie. Jeffrey Katzenberg, the CEO of DreamWorks, and director Dean DeBlois broke the sad news that How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, the third sequel, will be the last movie in the series. But don’t be sad, because, in 2021, we were able to watch two new sequels: Dragons Rescue Riders: Heroes of the Sky and How to Train Your Dragon: The Nine Realms.
Heroes of the Sky was the direct follow-up to DreamWorks’ Dragons: Rescue Riders. In that show, we met Dak and Leyla, and the heroes and dragons went to the deep sea. The third movie, The Nine Realms, is set 1,300 years after the events of How to Train Your Dragon. By this time, dragons are only stories.
