'How to Train Your Dragon' TV series to debut on Netflix in June

Posted on

DreamWorks Animation Television, Inc.

The soaring adventures of Hiccup and Toothless have never been confined to the limits of a movie theater—and this June, the stars of How to Train Your Dragon will take flight in an all-new original animated series premiering in its entirety on Netflix on June 26.

DreamWorks Animation’s Dragons: Race to the Edge follows Hiccup and the Dragon Riders beyond the boundaries of Berk as they come upon an ancient artifact known as the Dragon Eye, which leads them to discover a slew of unknown dragons in new lands. The only hitch is a gang of marauding dragon hunters, who are also after the secrets and power of the Dragon Eye.

Since the original 2010 film, the HTTYD franchise has expanded into short films, video games, a live-action ice and arena show, and a Cartoon Network series that bridged the gap between the original film and its 2014 sequel. Race to the Edge will continue that story on Netflix, while How to Train Your Dragon 3 is currently slated for release in 2018.

Below, watch an exclusive trailer for the new series, which will debut all episodes on June 26.
