Writer-director Dean DeBlois has confirmed How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World will be the last in the series.

"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," DeBlois told Entertainment Weekly.

The first trailer of the film dropped back in June and featured Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) having realised his dream of creating a peaceful Viking-Dragon utopia.

But the trailer also heard him say, "There were dragons when I was a boy," a reference which DeBlois said fans will understand after watching the film.

"You will understand why Hiccup says (that). And by the end of this film, you'll have answered the question of what could have happened to them," DeBlois said.

The film also voice stars Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, America Ferrera, Kristen Wiig, TJ Miller, Gerard Butler and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

The Hidden World will be released in the UK on 1 February, 2019 and in the US on 1 March, 2019.

To see a couple of privileged folk, frantically trying to scramble their way to safety, their faces whiter than their original white after what they have just seen. It is oddly satisfying to see how it ends for them, because I know it will.
