Some five years after the second installment, a third How to Train Your Dragon movie is nearly with us.

This one – How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World – will see Hiccup realising his dream of a peaceful dragon utopia threatened when Toothless couples with an untamed mate that draws him away from the village.

The snippet of new footage below, released at New York Comic Con over the weekend, takes us back in time, with Stoick the Vast telling the tale of the dragons’ home to a young Hiccup.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is set to launch in Australian cinemas next February.
