‘How to Train Your Dragon’ Getting Live-Action Remake

The upcoming movie is led by the director of the original.

Since its first release in 2005, Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon has become one of the studio’s biggest and most beloved franchises. The initial film spawned multiple sequels and various TV and streaming offshoot series and films. Based on Cressida Cowell’s books, the original movie follows the story of Hiccup, a young viking who befriends and trains a dragon named Toothless, as they team up to alter their community’s views on dragons and become its guardians.

Despite being a relatively recent franchise launch, Dreamworks seems to be following Disney’s trend by bringing the franchise into the live-action realm. The studio recently announced the production of a live-action reboot of How to Train Your Dragon, set to hit screens in 2025. Details on the project are scarce, but there are circulating speculations about ongoing casting activities.

The notable aspect of this remake is that it is crafted by Dean DeBlois, who is also the writer, director, and producer. DeBlois previously co-wrote and co-directed the original film trilogy with Will Davies and Chris Sander. This marks DeBlois’ debut in the live-action arena, and he will receive support from producer Marc Platt and Marc Platt Productions, a Universal subsidiary.
