Dreamworks considering making two more How To Train Your Dragon films

Dreamworks Animation is reportedly mulling over the possibility of making two more films in the How To Train Your Dragon series, according to comments made by composer John Powell.

The series had initially been conceived as a trilogy, but the wild popularity of the first film, plus a batch of positive early reviews for its follow-up has apparently got the studio looking further down the track…

"I saw Dean [ DeBlois, the film's director ] in Cannes," says Powell. "We had a premiere of the film there, and he was very merry and a bit drunk and I think it was mentioned to him by Jeffrey [ Katzenberg, head of Dreamworks Animation ] that maybe they would do four."

"It might be good because he’s got a lot of story left to tell," continues Powell, "so maybe splitting it into two will work, but I just don’t know about that yet. I’m supposing that at the moment, Dean has an idea for the third one and he isn’t telling any of us."

Directed by DeBlois and co-staring the vocal talents of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler and Cate Blanchett, How To Train Your Dragon 2 will open in the UK on 27 June 2014.
