A new TV spot for How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World sees Hiccup saying goodbye to Toothless in what might be a permanent farewell.
This third installment is set to be the last entry to the How to Train Your Dragon franchise. “We thought about it for a long time and came up with what we think is a bittersweet way to say goodbye to these characters, but the right way,” director Dean DeBlois said. “You will understand why Hiccup says, as you heard in the trailer, ‘There were dragons when I was a boy.’ And by the end of this film, you’ll have answered the question of what could have happened to them.” You can get a taste of how the How to Train Your Dragon franchise will break hearts in its finale in the TV spot featured at the beginning of the video above.
The franchise launched in 2010 with the first How to Train Your Dragon movie. It has sinced spawned a spinoff series on Netflix which will also end with the release of the third movie. It really is the end of the line for Hiccup and Toothless.
