Story by Jack Foley

UNIVERSAL has pushed back the release date of How To Train Your Dragon 3 to March 1, 2019.

The DreamWorks Animation film did have a release date of May 18, 2018.

To be directed by Dean DeBlois, the new film will bring back Jay Baruchel as Hiccup, as well as the likes of Jonah Hill, Cate Blanchett and Kristen Wiig.

The new March release date puts the third film in the series in a fairly competitive marketplace, given that Disney/Marvel’s first female-fronted standalone, Captain Marvel, and Warner Bros.’ monster movie sequel, Godzilla 2, are among the movies set to bow then.

Universal has also set a date for Oriental DreamWorks’ Everest – September 27, 2019.

Directed by Tim Johnson (of Home fame), the movie follows a group of young misfits who find a Yeti named Everest, and try to return him to a his family at one of the highest points on earth.
