The “Dragons” saga will once again come to the fore, this time on the small screen. DreamWorks has indeed formalized the launch of “Dragons: The Nine Realms”. A trailer is already available.
Dragons : a flagship saga of DreamWorks
Adapted from the novel How to train your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, released in 2003, The first movie Dragons was born in 2010 edited by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois. Produced by DreamWorks, the feature film met with rapid and triumphant success. The film is nominated twice at the Oscars and brings in more than $ 494 million in box office revenue (for a budget of 165 million). Faced with this total success, DreamWorks decides to develop an entire saga centered on Dragons. Dean DeBlois returns to directing twice for two sequels. These will be released in 2014 and 2019 respectively. In all, the trilogy Dragons brings back more than $ 1.6 billion at the box office.
In the meantime, DreamWorks is also producing an animated series, which was released from 2012 to 2018. Aired first on Cartoon Network and then on Netflix, this animated series Dragons serves to make the link between the first two films. In all, eight seasons were produced, for a total of 118 episodes. Now, DreamWorks and Universal have just formalized a brand new series derived from the Dragons universe: Dragons: The Nine Realms.
Already a trailer
DreamWorks has therefore just formalized the launch of Dragons: The Nine Realms via a first teaser. The latter allows to unveil the official logo of the show. The Nine Realms will consist of six episodes and will air on Hulu and Peacock from next December 23. This first teaser also introduces new characters and new dragons. The plot of the series will take place in modern times. In addition to the show’s logo, this tiny trailer offers a visual on a dragon who appears to be a distant descendant of Toothless. The dragon and its rider fly over a helipad, while wind turbines are visible in the background.
DreamWorks accompanied the release of the trailer of an official synopsis as follows:
“Set 1,300 years after the events of How to Train Your Dragon, dragons are no more than a legend in the modern world. When a geological anomaly opens a huge fissure several kilometers deep in the Earth’s surface, scientists from around the world gather at a new research center to study the mysterious phenomenon. Soon, a group of misfit children, brought to the site by their parents, discover the truth about the creatures and where they are hiding. A secret that they must keep to themselves to protect what they have discovered. “
