  • First trailer introduces a new female dragon
  • F. Murray Abraham voices the main villain

The first trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 3 – titled The Hidden World – has arrived, giving us the first look at the third and final chapter of the trilogy that has been away for five years. Dean DeBois, who co-wrote and co-directed 2010's How to Train Your Dragon, and wrote and directed its 2014 sequel How to Train Your Dragon 2, returns in those roles for the closing instalment.

The How to Train Your Dragon 3 trailer opens with the series protagonist Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III (voiced by Jay Baruchel) pleased with his efforts to create a peaceful dragon-Viking utopia, following on from the events of How to Train Your Dragon 2. Some of his constituents aren't as pleased though, with the rescued baby dragons from the middle chapter having their way with the food.

Everything changes one night, when Hiccup's dragon friend Toothless comes across another one of his kind: a female, white-skinned dragon called a "Light Fury" by Hiccup's long-time girlfriend Astrid Hofferson (voiced by America Ferrera), as opposed to Toothless being a "Night Fury". But as soon as the female dragon catches a glimpse of the humans, she takes off and disappears into a burst of light.

Though the new trailer doesn't show that, the premise tells us that Toothless will leave Hiccup and go after the dragon. He's immediately smitten with her, and even performs a dance for her, like male birds do in our world. Meanwhile, Hiccup and Astrid discover a hidden dragon world, thus giving us the final chapter of the trilogy its title.

Of course, every film needs a villain, and that turns out to be a rival Viking called Gimmel (voiced by F. Murray Abraham) in How to Train Your Dragon 3. Gimmel somehow captures Toothless' new dragon friend, and together with Hiccup, Giccup and Co. launch an assault on Gimmel's forces, which we suppose will form the third act of the film.

The voice cast also includes Cate Blanchett as Valka, Hiccup's mother; Craig Ferguson as Gobber the Belch, a veteran warrior; Jonah Hill as Snotlout Jorgenson, Hiccup's cousin; Kit Harington as Eret, the dragon trapper; T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig as fraternal twins Tuffnut and Ruffnut Thorston; and Gerard Butler as Stoick the Vast, Hiccup's late father.

How to Train Your Dragon 3 is slated to release March 1, 2019 worldwide.
