More theatrical release date changes due to the actors strike which is clocking 113 days, however, the good news is that it doesn’t impact 2024. Universal and DreamWorks Animation’s live action take of animated movie How to Train Your Dragon goes from March 14, 2025 to Friday, June 13, 2025.
Uni had the latter date already on hold on the calendar.
Any rivals out there, March 14, 2025 is now empty of any wide entries. How to Train Your Dragon‘s new date currently has an untitled Pixar movie on it.
The new live-action How to Train Your Dragon movie is written and directed by 3x Academy Award nominee Dean DeBlois, who has written and directed the entire Dragon trilogy based on the best-selling books series by Cressida Cowell. The live-action film will be produced by 3x Oscar nominee Marc Platt (La La Land, Bridge of Spies), DeBlois and Emmy winner Adam Siegel (2 Guns, Drive). The trio of Dragon movies have grossed more than $1.6 billion worldwide and nabbed four Oscar noms and a Golden Globe win for How to Train Your Dragon 2.
How to Train Your Dragon follows a hapless young Viking who aspires to hunt dragons and becomes the unlikely friend of a young dragon himself. The young lad learns there may be more to the creatures than he assumed.
The studio also announced that it has an untitled event movie going on Wednesday, July 2, 2025.
There are several untitled holds by major studios across the 2024 calendar. It has yet to be seen if those holds are real or whether they’re just temporary placeholders which will in and of themselves be moved.
