‘How to Train Your Dragon 3′ Delayed Until 2017

How to Train Your Dragon 2
DreamWorks Animation

Although ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2‘ was a pretty big success for DreamWorks Animation and just soared past the $600 million mark worldwide over the Labor Day weekend, it looks like it’ll be a little while longer before we see the further adventures of Hiccup and his pals: the studio has just announced that the third installment in the series has been pushed back to 2017.

Initially announced for the same weekend as Pixar’s ‘Finding Nemo’ sequel ‘Finding Dory‘ and the recently dated Shane Black film ‘The Nice Guys,’ DreamWorks’ ‘How to Train Your Dragon 3′ was set to hit theaters on June 17, 2016. The film will now hit theaters on June 9, 2017, a date that is currently unoccupied by any other releases.

Writer/director Dean DeBois — who worked on both the first and second films — will return for the third outing. Jay Baruchel will reprise his role as Hiccup, along with co-stars America Ferrera and Cate Blanchett, who made her debut in the second film as Hiccup’s mother.

‘Finding Dory’ would have made for some pretty stiff competition, but the new release date isn’t without some draw backs: ‘The LEGO Movie’ sequel comes out the week before on May 26, and another Pixar movie is set to come out the week after, which could absorb some of the film’s potential box office earnings.
