The How to Train Your Dragon franchise is soaring to a new platform: Netflix. According to Comingsoon.net, the series, called Dragons: Race to the Edge, will follow protagonists Hiccup and Toothless as they travel to a new land where they discover other dragons and encounter evil dragon hunters. It will air on June 26. Check out the official trailer:
Race to the Edge will be the third television series in the franchise, following the Cartoon Network-aired Riders of Berk (2012) and Defenders of Berk (2013). The original series generated great acclaim, with the Los Angles Times hailing it as “TV with big screen quality.” The new series is to have 26 episodes.
How to Train Your Dragon is one of Dreamworks’ most successful franchises in recent years. And with a greater shift towards Netflix-only series, this looks to be a great move.
