Berk's Grapevine

Latest Dragons

One More Month!



It's official now, the release date for the third season of Race to the Edge is June 24! That means we have exactly a month before Hiccup, Toothless, and the others are back on Netflix!

Check back soon… there may be some new images and clips from the new season coming out!

Possible Race to the Edge Season 3 Date



The next season of Race to the Edge may premiere on Netflix on June 24! So far, there's only one source backing up this date and it's not DreamWorks, but it seems like a very reasonable possibility! I guess this means it's time to add a new sidebar countdown!

It's too bad Netflix hasn't accidentally leaked a list of episode names like last time. What do you think will happen in the next thirteen episodes?

Free Comic Book Day: New Dragon Comic!



Check out this sneak peek page from the 10-page How to Train Your Dragon story released on Saturday, May 7 for Free Comic Book Day! The story is written by Dean DeBlois and Richard Hamilton, with art by Doug Wheatley and colors by Wes Dzioba.



Curious about what will be coming up? We asked Richard Hamilton a couple questions:

Where does the stand-alone story take place in the Dragon timeline?

As with all of our Dark Horse comics and graphic novels, this story takes place between How To Train Your Dragon 2 & 3. In the case of the FCBD issue, we're actually flashing back to some previously unknown, but very important, history while also hinting at some stuff that'll become crucial in the second graphic novel, Dragonvine, and beyond.

How does the comic add to our understanding of the universe, the characters, or the dragons?

Even though it's only ten pages long, the FCBD really dives deep into our riders' personalities, revealing new aspects of Astrid, Snotlout, Gobber, Valka -- and it even takes us to the scariest place of all: Inside Ruff & Tuff's minds! The story also introduces a new dragon breed and raises two big questions that Hiccup now has to answer as chief of Berk: Why didn't he know about these dragons before, and what has caused them to now come out of hiding?

If possible, can I also give a shout-out to our artist, Doug Wheatley? I truly cannot think of an artist better suited for Dragons than Doug as he his absolutely killing it with the characters, nailing their likenesses and personalities, and bringing so much energy and emotion to the stories. I think the fans are gonna love Doug's work as much as Dean and I do, if not more!

Heather's Dragon Eye Lens and More Dragons



DreamWorks TV just released a new video with a little more information about the next season of Race to the Edge! In that past, many of us have speculated that Heather's belt contains a dragon eye lens. Although the video doesn't say for sure what will be on it, this is the first time that we've seen any kind of acknowledgement of it (3:21).

The Race to the Edge team also said that the Dragon Eye will be a "major part" of the next season and that it will lead the Vikings to new dragons, such as a "baby version of an old favorite" and a "species of albino dragons" (4:06).

The video also suggests that the Dragon Eye's gas defense and gear system may have influenced the Zippleback gas weapon on Hiccup's future sword, Inferno, and Hiccup's prosthetic leg (1:45).
