'How to Train Your Dragon 3' re­lease pushed back a year

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

It will take a lit­tle longer for "How to Train Your Dragon 3" to fly into the­aters. The se­quel in the pop­u­lar an­i­mated fran­chise hits the­aters on March 1, 2019, nearly a year af­ter it was orig­i­nally slated for re­lease, DreamWorks An­i­ma­tion said Mon­day. That gives it a one-week jump on "Cap­tain Mar­vel," a comic-book ad­ven­ture fea­tur­ing Brie Lar­son. "How to Train Your Dragon 3" was orig­i­nally sup­posed to open on May 18, 2018. That would have put it a week be­fore a Han Solo, "Star Wars" spinoff film.

Di­rec­tor Dean DeBlois, who over­saw the pre­vi­ous two "Dragon" films, will re­turn for the se­quel. Re­lated 'How to Train Your Dragon 3,' Mar­got Rob­bie's 'Lar­rikins' Of­fi­cially Move to Univer­sal In ad­di­tion, DreamWorks Ori­en­tal's "Ever­est" will open on Sept 27, 2019. The film fol­lows a group of mis­fits who un­der­take an epic jour­ney to re­unite a mag­i­cal crea­ture with his fam­ily atop the world's tallest moun­tain. The moves fol­low Com­cast's $3.8 bil­lion pur­chase of DreamWorks An­i­ma­tion. That sale will put the an­i­ma­tion stu­dio un­der the um­brella of Univer­sal, the same com­pany that over­sees "De­spi­ca­ble Me"-maker Il­lu­mi­na­tion Stu­dios. Last month, DreamWorks An­i­ma­tion an­nounced it had can­celled "Croods 2," a fol­low-up to its 2013 com­edy hit that was slated to hit the­aters in 2017.
