Berk's Grapevine

Ask the Race to the Edge Executive Producers!


Art Brown and Doug Sloan are the executive producers of DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge in addition to producing Riders of Berk and Defenders of Berk, so you can bet they know a lot about the world of dragons! And now it's your chance to ask them about the new show!

As is usual with Berk's Grapevine interviews, all questions will be reader-submitted! So if you're curious about Race to the Edge or want to know what happens behind-the-scenes as an executive producer, leave your question as a comment on this post. Or, if you think someone else has submitted a question you would like to hear, upvote their comment.

Obviously, you can't expect them to reveal too much about Race to the Edge — that would be no fun. But if you're curious about anything, be it the characters, the story, the new dragons, or how the series ties in with the films, no one will be able to answer it better!

Question submission open until Monday, April 20
To make sure your question is considered, try to submit it before the deadline.
All questions must be submitted on this page's comment thread.

    Is it likely that Heather or the Flightmare will be seen again?

  2. How much will we see of Ruffnut and Astrid? They are usually treated as extensions of Tuffnut and Hiccup so it would be nice to see more of their individuality.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Without saying spoilers, do you think we can expect to see baby Nightfuries? The whole world will die with cuteness if we see them. :D Also. will these episodes get released on DVD?

    ReplyDelete
  4. Please make sure all top-level comments are questions for Art Brown and Doug Sloan! (Relevant discussion is fine underneath them.) Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  5. ya it would be, Astrid's like my favorite!!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Will the dragons (mainly the riders') have more personality and character development in the new season? Any more scenes with them interacting with each other without any humans around would be nice to see too.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Since the teens will be sharing a house together, will we get any awkward/hilarious situations?

    ReplyDelete
  8. wait a minute, june 26 is summer, not spring!! WHY!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. that's what I said. I hope we get to see baby nightfuries too :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Is there anything you can tell us about Adelaide Kane and Alfred Molina's characters?

    ReplyDelete
  11. How does the series tie into the movies and how do you determine what information gets revealed in the series (instead of the movies)?

    Why is it that only those who can afford Netflix get to see this? sone of us non Netflix watchers love dragons too!

    ReplyDelete
  13. extensions? lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. Can you tell us anything about Dagur? Incredibly awesome villain in my opinion...so funny but dangerous :) Hoping he would make a return! We hear he's going to be back for revenge but can you tell us a little bit more about his motivations? Could he be getting a dragon of his own?

    ReplyDelete
  15. how much closer are hiccup and astrid in their relationship?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I heard the series was only being aired on Netflix. What about those of us who want to watch it, but don't have Netflix?

    ReplyDelete
  17. will the series ever be released on a TV channel or JUST on Netflix?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Are Hiccup and Astrid going to kiss eventually in this season? We missed one in Defenders of Berk and they only kissed 6 or 7 times on camera. I'd like to see maybe the first time Hiccup ever was comfortable initiating a kiss =)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Will the Skrill return for any reasons?
    Im actually really excited about the Cavern Crasher dragon, what could we expect it to do in the series?
    What about the new tribe that also have a respect for dragons? Do they respect and worship them, or actually ride them as well?
    Can you reveal (no pun intended) anything about the mysterious Dragon Eye?
    Last, but probably the most important in my opinion, on the island in the Netflix teaser, where the teens are all hanging out, will that island actually be in the story?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Caitlin PanettieriApril 15, 2015 at 6:21 PM

    Will there be any good episodes of Hiccup and Astrid maybe coming an item? I wanna see how it all become of them. Cuz in the last 2 seasons didn't show much. And if there together for real in the 2nd movie, i wanna know how it started. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. will there be more backstories for the dragon riders?

    ReplyDelete
  22. is mildew returning?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Netflix doesnt exist in my country . does the series will be uploaded on any other website like youtube ?
    how close the relationship between astrid and hiccup ?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Is the animation in this series changed from the last series? Are you guys using the same animation software as the last series or did you guys add new animation features? How many new dragons are there going to be in this series?

    ReplyDelete
  25. My question is what would you say is similar or different about the TV show compared to the movie?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is there an edge involved in race to the edge or is it a metaphor for not an edge?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well since it's a world filled with dragons, are we going to expect to see any other mythical creatures in the show as well? Gryphons, gnomes, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  28. hiccupandtoothlesshybridApril 15, 2015 at 7:19 PM

    I want to ask what we are looking at with the new world with the dragon eye and the new out post

    ReplyDelete
  29. VelocityTheSpeedStingerApril 15, 2015 at 7:32 PM

    Is there any chance that dragons which were featured in the Book of Dragons short (Timberjack and Snaptrapper) that haven't showed up yet in the series will appear in these 13 episodes? Could they make an appearance later in the remaining 39 episodes?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Will any of the Outcasts still be loyal to Dagur?
    And what about Dagur's armada? Did Alvin take them them prisoner too?

    ReplyDelete
  31. With the second movie now out has it given you more room for creativity? Also has it allowed you to touch on things you may have previously been unable to touch on in the last two seasons due to them being aired before the second film?

    ReplyDelete
  32. 1. How much involvement did Dean DeBlois have in the process of creating the story arc for Race to the Edge as opposed to previous seasons?



    2. How does the Dragon Eye tie into the larger framework of the HTTYD universe?


    3. Will we see any other characters from Cressida Cowell's novels make an appearance in Race to the Edge (Camicazi, Excellinor, etc)?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Will Heather show up in Season 3? If so, will she show up as a villain or one of the supporting characters?

    ReplyDelete
  34. My guess that is going to be the "Dragon Island" from the previous two seasons, with Hiccup's own twists added.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I doubt it. In HTTYD 2, Hiccup had said that maybe he might find another "Night Fury" which means that he had only found Toothless. Then again, the producers might make an exception.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Will Heather return? Even just for one episode? I want to see expansion on her relationship with the other riders!

    ReplyDelete
  37. bewilderbeastofjusticeApril 15, 2015 at 10:21 PM

    will there be snaptrappers, timberjacks, or robber's boneknapper please i've been waiting so long to me them in action, will hiccup and his friends meet again and show us how they learned to train whispering deaths, changewings, skrills, typhoomargs, fireworm queens, smothering smokebreaths, or speed stingers from scratch that would make it perfect, and will heather return with at least a dragon of her own like a scauldron a timberjack a whispering death or a changewing that's what i've been dreaming

    ReplyDelete
  41. Where are they? I mean we all know it's not Berk in the trailer, will this be like college for the riders?

  42. What are you most looking forward to about this season?

    ReplyDelete
  43. The Whisperer of DeathApril 16, 2015 at 12:07 AM

    1. Will any of the characters from the books show up? (Like Camacazi, Thuggory, Big Boobied Bertha, etc.)
    2. Will any other Tribes come up?
    3. Will we see some of Hiccup's training to become Chief?
    4. The whole fandom loved Hiccup's new look. What were the gang's reactions?
    5. Will we see some flashbacks of a younger Hiccup? (Maybe a cute 5 yr old?) (I for one would like to see an episode where he's remembering his past and how far he's come)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I hear some of the villains are gonna have some ties to Drago. Are we gonna see anything that hints to Valka?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Why hiccup's top is red? Do we have shirtless Hiccup screens?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm an animation student at the Cleveland Institute of Art looking to one day work for Dreamworks. It is my dream job. My question is more technical than it is about the plot (though I REALLY want to see more of the Skrill).
    I've been guided through the entire pre, working, and post-production process by my professors so I know about render times and how long animation actually takes.
    My question is this: how long does a typical episode take to make? The rigs are already there, then it's a matter of getting the voices recorded and synced to the animation or vise versa. But how long does one episode typically take, from storyboarding to animation to post production to marketing and publishing/airing? This is literally my future so I am INCREDIBLY interested.

    Thank you very much!

  49. As producers of the show what do you think about the move to Netflix?
    How has it affected your work load?
    And do you find it any different working on and distributing the show through Netflix then when the show was aired on a TV network?
    (For an example before hand you were airing an episode a week now it's quite a few all at once then a wait period. From your perspective is that vastly different or is it still more or less the same. With no noticeable difference on the work load to make and distribute the episodes at all.)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Claire Ashton-BriggsApril 16, 2015 at 1:59 AM

    Will we get to see Hiccup without his prosthetic on as it feels like it is just glued on now and it would be good show kids what its like to live with one?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Will the music in the series be the same as the first two season of dragons or will you guys just mix it up? Or are your guys going to use the music from HTTYD 2 and mix it up/tune like your guys did for in different situations (ex: fighting scenes, action scenes,ect.) like the last 2 Seasons?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Will Trader Johan return or find Hiccup and the gang again?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Will Alvin The Treacherous come back or not?

    ReplyDelete
  54. So it take more time to animate hiccup and the gang (since they grown up and changed) and all of the series since there is more things in the new series? If so how long does it take to make a episode?

    ReplyDelete
  55. If there are people who are interested in watching THIS series but haven't watched the Last seasons of dragons would they understand it or do they have to watch the first two Seasons before they watch this one?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Do they dragons get bigger in this series and more fatter
    ? (since they are changing) is the color on the dragons get more lighter or darker from the last series?

  57. How many storyboards do you guys make for a episode and season in all?

    How is the Snow Wraith different from the Woolly Howl?
    Will there be new dragon riders from Berk, like Gustav?
    Could he see Hiccup training a new class of dragon riders?
    Will we see Hiccup creating new inventions?

    I want to know if there are to be more seasons after this one based off after the second movie?

    ReplyDelete
  62. 1) Why are you calling the new season Race to the Edge instead of "something" of berk like the last two seasons?


    2) Will Dagur or any other past characters from the TV series be returning intro the series?


    3) From what we've seen in the trailer the team have moved to a new island, is it possible to know where and why they decided to move away from Berk(did they decide to have a new/bigger dragon academy)?

    5) Will we find out who/where the Dragon Eye came from, did someone make it or is it some sort of prophecy(how much will it effect the story)?


    6) Are the gang traveling into new country's/cultures(Rome, discovering America?)


    7) Finally, will we discover anything on Nightfurys(evidence of more, why toothless glows etc.)?


    P.S Sorry for the mountain of questions! XD :S

    Could you tell us when a longer trailer will be coming out? If not a specific date, a time of month would be fine

    And also does it come out on the UK Netflix in June as well? I just want to know when I can write it on my calender

  75. RealHousewifeofBerkApril 16, 2015 at 11:17 AM

    Can we see more of Astrid being awesome and actually getting to save the day a few times instead of just getting rescued? Will Snotlout stop being annoying and ruining everything?

    ReplyDelete
  76. 1. How much of the story will actually take place on Berk? And will we get to see Hiccup putting his inventions to use on Berk?

    2. Will we get any kind of back story for the twins, Fishlegs, and Snotlout?

    3. Will Mildew, Mulch, Bucket, and Heather be in this series as well?

  78. What was the most difficult thing did the crew faced in terms of story, animation, and basically everything else?

    What motivated to you to expand upon the movie franchises?

    ReplyDelete
  79. Do you think we'll see the Skrill again? He got frozen in Defenders of Berk, so it seems possible that that effect could be reversed.
    Also, with the second movie already having been released, how did this effect your production of the new season. Did you have more liberties or more restrictions in any areas? What has the second film's release (along with the aging of the characters) allowed you to explore in this season that RoB and DoB were unable to develop?

    ReplyDelete
  80. This will be based before HTTYD2, I believe, so Stoick would be there.

    ReplyDelete
  81. The 2nd movie failed financially, so they had to put it on Netflix, which sucks as my tablet's Netflix is broken, lags really badly. Hopefully it may appear on the internet somewhere if the hunk of metal keeps screwing up.

    ReplyDelete
  82. They missed such a great opportunity at the end of episode 6 in DoB, he placed a hand on her shoulder, then it cut to Snotlout, I was just like "WHERE'S THE KISS!?"

    ReplyDelete
  83. Why did you say that it would be released in Spring, but then turned around and gave us the "Surprise motherf*cker" when you said it was being released in June? (Not annoyed, just curious.)

    Is there a specific date for the next trailer or a sneak peak? If not could you specify a time of month (like late April, early May? )

    Also does it come out on the UK Netflix in June as well?

    2.Will Heather be back?
    3.What happened to Dagur at the end of season 2?

    ReplyDelete
  86. Unfortunately we may not see them because in the second movie Valka said Toothless may be the last of his kind. Hiccup also told Toothless that on the new island they found they may see more Night Furies. I would love to see more Night Furies. I think everyone is waiting to see more Night Furies.

  88. Yes, you can submit as many questions as you want! Unfortunately, I can't pick every question, but a variety of different questions will definitely make for a more interesting interview!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I know that, I meant because if Astrid and Hiccup were comfortable kissing each other rather then Astrid kissing Hiccup, that had to of started somewhere. I'd like to see when Hiccup first ever kissed Astrid himself for the first time.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I've talked with him, and he's still working on it (his answers are going to be insanely detailed). You have to be signed in to prevent spam voting. Yeah, I don't like it either, but the unfortunate reality is that there are spammers here. For example, if you noticed that a ton of comments disappeared a few days ago, that's because some spammer reported about 170 comments from the most recent two posts and I had to go through all of them and un-report them.

    ReplyDelete
  91. 1. Will we see how the Village develops between films 1 and 2? (ie the new buidlings/expansions)


    2. In httyd 2 Stoic calls Astrid his 'daughter in-law' will this be touched upon in season 3?


    3. Do Hiccup and the crew go exploring new lands or is mostly centered on Berk?


    4. Do we get to see how Hiccup's flight suit and sword came to be?


    Thanks :)

    The first 13 episodes will be released all at once on the same day.
    The rest will be released every 6 months or around that range.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Has the animation for the show been updated at all since the last two seasons? Is Premo being used in this show, or only for feature films?

    ReplyDelete
  95. please have valka in it

    ReplyDelete
  96. Has having the second film to refer to been more freeing or constraining in the creative process of making this series? How hard has it been to find this season's place in the larger picture of HTTYD?


    Will we see how Hiccup's desire to map the world came about in this season?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Will any characters from race to the edge be in HTTYD 3 besides Hiccup, Astrid, the Twins, Fishlegs, and Snotlout? It would be really nice to viewers of the tv show if there was like a shot of Bucket and Mulch or Mildew in the actual film.
    Will there be a story about how Gobber and Stoick got their Dragons?
    Will Hiccup's relationship with Astrid grow closer?
    Will any of the dragons introduced in HTTYD 2 be talked about in the series such as the Hotburple or the Rumblehorn?
    Will they talk about the Red Death from the first movie in the show?

    ReplyDelete
  98. will there be more Night Furies? If so, can you make a character named Suzette who owns a white Night Fury with blue eyes? :D

    ReplyDelete
  99. 1. Will any characters (besides Hiccup, Astrid, Fishlegs, the Twins, and Snotlout) from the previous seasons (Stoick, Gobber, Gustav, etc.) appear in the third season?
    2. I've heard rumors that Dagur will be reappearing. Is that true?
    3. Will there be an episode explaining how Snotlout and Fishlegs started crushing on Ruffnut?
    4. Will Skullcrusher (Stoick's dragon) and Grump (Gobber's dragon) appear in the third season?
    5. Will any dragons (besides Toothless, Stormfly, Meatlug, Hookfang, BarfBelch) from the previous seasons appear?
    6. Will there be any episodes focusing on the perspectives of the dragons?
    7. Will there be any Hiccstrid?

    ReplyDelete
  100. Good one, I also wish for the return of the Skrill :D

    ReplyDelete
  101. My questions revolve mostly around the story elements:

    1. Since the new season takes place one year before the events of How to Train your Dragon 2, will there be some kind of foreshadowing the events of the second movie?

    2. How many villains we will have in this season? And will we have another dragon antagonist?

    3. Given that the gang will attempt to unlock the secrets of Dragon Eye, does that mean most of the episodes will take place beyond Berk?

    4. Will Heather return? And how far Dagur will survive this season?



    5. Will the new dragons from Rise of Berk game make appearance?


    Here are my questions. I'm mostly curious about the second question and last question :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Paintsplash the Night FuryApril 17, 2015 at 2:11 AM

    Okay, I have a few questions.
    1) Is playful, friendly teasing of Hiccup and Astrid's relationship by others something we can expect in the upcoming thirteen episodes?
    2) Because the episodes are going to be on Netflix, will they be longer than the previous forty episodes which were about twenty minutes each? If so, how long?

    ReplyDelete
  103. Do Astrid and Hiccup get closer? If so how? ;D
    What about the other dragon riders? Do they develop any 'love life'?

    ReplyDelete
  104. will it be on netflix in Canada?

    ReplyDelete
  105. Will there be another Nightfury in Race To The Edge?

    ReplyDelete
  106. 1. Will be seasons 3 and 4 sequels to first two seasons, or will they just ignore them?
    2. Will we see MUCH more from Hiccup and Astrid's relationship?

    ReplyDelete
  107. -It has been said this season is supposed to be the gangs "college years", and in the teaser they are clearly not on Berk (at least any part we've seen). Does the gang actually move out?


    - In HTTYD2, Astrid mentions that Ruffnut tried to bury Snotlout alive. Will we get to see this happen? (Sorry, I had to).


    -Will Hiccup/ Astrid officially become a couple this season?

    ReplyDelete
  108. Will Hiccup work on making his new prosthetic leg in the season? He still has his old one so if he's gonna work on his flight suit too will the new and improved peg-leg go along with it?

  109. The Qrazurite GuardianApril 17, 2015 at 4:47 PM

    Hello Doug Sloan and Art Brown! You guys are so cool, and I love the work you and Dreamworks do for our benefit. Thank you so much. I have some questions about the series:

    1. Since the new series will be focusing on the newer, unseen dragons, how much of the older ones (Whispering Death, Typhoomerang, Changewing, etc.) will we be seeing? I understand that they would have the occasional cameo, but how much screen time will they have?

    2. Will there be more human qualities in the dragons that didn't get as much? Such as Barf, Belch, Stormfly, and the other wild dragons?

    3. Also, it seems like the twins, Barf, and Belch didn't get much screen time apart from comedy relief and episodes that were focused on them. Could we be seeing more of them? I heard there was going to be something about Tuffnut and a chicken. And please give Astrid more "main character" credit and screen time. We all feel that we don't see enough of her in the series.

    4. Thank you for showing us how Hiccup's flight suit is developing, along with a lot of character development, but what about Toothless? I'm curious about his saddle development. How much of that will you show?

    5. If you don't use the Apollo software for animating the series, what software do you use? How much time does it take, on average, to just animate an episode, final rendering included? No story boarding or voice recording sessions, just the animation.

    6. The villans-Will you age up Dagur very much or will he stay the same, because you already have him in the system? Will we ever see Alvin or Mildew again? How many ties do the new villans have with Drago, and how much foreshadowing will there be reguarding him?

    7. Which characters will be returning from the two previous seasons? Heather, Mulch, Bucket or Johan? And will we ever see the characters that were mentioned such as Dagur's father or his sister?

    Hope these are all good, relevant questions that you can answer. You guys are AWSOME! Thank you so much for making a series that we all enjoy. Keep up the hard work.

  111. I have a few questions regarding the upcoming series:

    1) Will the Season 3 episodes follow an order and have a distinct time lapse from the first one to the last, to show the passage of time and how each episode (roughly) leads to the next one? With the first two seasons, we didn't see much of any reference to the passage of time other than a single-line reference early on in Season 2 to "Gem of a Different Color" and the reappearance of Torch as a grown up in "Zippleback Down", but it wasn't clear roughly how much time had gone by; will the passage of time be more obvious in Season 3?

    2) Will there be any explanation about any of the new dragons that we saw in HTTYD 2 but who didn't have much, if any, information about them revealed in the movie (scuttleclaw, raincutter, snafflefang, hobblegrunt, etc.)?

    3) For those of us who will not have access to Netflix, will the episodes be airing on TV as well? If so, when should we expect to see them start?

    4) Will we see any more of the island that Meatlug flew Hiccup to in "Gift of the Night Fury"? I'd like to learn more about it and why the dragons migrate there to lay their eggs.

    Thank you so much for providing us this opportunity.

  115. 1. If there will be a fourth season, will it take place after the events of How To Train Your Dragon 2?
    2.When the season ends, how many days or months are there left before HTTYD 2 takes place?
    3. What island was Hiccup and the gang were on in the teaser?
    4. At any chance, will there be any Drago or Valka references?
    5. What is with the Dragon Eye? Why does Dagur want it?

    5: Will we see any of Toothless past?

  119. I really think there are too many questions being asked here that are better suited for a director or writer of the show.

    Here are some for the producers:

    How is producing a show for Netflix different than producing for a cable TV station like Cartoon Network and what advantages and challenges come with choosing Netflix for the distributor?

    Is there anything particularly unique about producing a show for the HTTYD franchise as opposed to any of the other animated franchises?

    How have the recent troubles with DreamWorks' revenue stream affected the decisions in the production of this show?

    ReplyDelete
  120. Is Chris Sqnders duo the producers of this?

    If so, do you cringe when you hear the name John Lasseter?

    Are the character's rigged from scratch for the series or do the models come from the movie's original file drive? If they are transferred to the new software, how much financing goes into bringing them to a new file drive?

    ReplyDelete
  123. In HTTYD2, Berk was changed a lot to better suit the dragons. Is this going to be touched upon in the Race to the Edge?

    ReplyDelete
  124. 1-Will the show be made out of Premo? Like would the graphics be at least as good as HTTYD2?
    2-Would Cate Blanchett return for this? If not would she return eventually? Loved her voice acting as Valka.

    ReplyDelete
  125. -Why did you choose Alfred Molina as the villain and were there other choices?

    -Also will we be expecting other villains if so who are the new voice actor

    -Will we be expecting any returning characters like Dagur, Alvin or Heather

    Where is Hiccup and Astrid's relationship at this point?
    Why are they not on berk in the teaser trailer?
    Will heather return to season 3?
    Will we also see them discovering the new dragons from httyd 2?
    In the second movie hiccup is described as very persuasive. Will we get to see any of that?
    The animation in the teaser already looks awesome. What did you do differently from the first two seasons?
    Will we get any really cool battle/fighting scenes?
    Does the new tribe just worship dragons, or can they also ride them?
    Will their dragons develop/discover any cool new abilities like in the first two seasons?
    Are they still actually training the dragons?
    Will we get to see how the ruffnut triangle started?
    How many episodes will we be getting? I've heard a lot of different things
    Why did you chose to release a bunch of episodes on the same date?
    How did you come up with the idea for the dragon eye?

    Sorry there's so many questions but I'm just so excited! 😄😄😄

  135. Hannah loves DragonsApril 19, 2015 at 6:36 PM

    On a scale from 1 to 10 how much would you say hiccup and Astrid's relationship had evolved since riders and defenders of Berk?

    Also, do snotlout and fishlegs start competing for Ruffnuts affection in the series or will that happen later on?

    ReplyDelete
  136. How much of Dagur will we get in the new series?? Please tell me he's still not over the fact that Hiccup hasn't kissed his boot yet lol.

    ReplyDelete
  137. For your first question, I don't think so. Remember, Douglas Sloan and Art Brown have been working on this for a few years, and Dean Debois is just now finishing up the screanplay for the third movie.


    For the second, third, and fourth, I would say a definite yes according to Netflix's press releases.


    For the sixth, I would say there might be one for How to train your Dragon 3, just like there was for the second.


    And for your last one, maybe. According to news releases, the TV Series will go over the Dragon Trappers, and with that, the name, "Drago," might be thrown around by the Trappers in brief conversations they have with Hiccup and the rest of the dragon trappers.


    (Obviously, this information might not be accurate, as it's merely based on what is already known about the series thus far)

    ReplyDelete
  138. For your first one, I believe so. If you are a fan of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Netflix had season 6 exclusively, which may be the case for DreamWorks Dragons, Netflix having season 3 and 4 exclusively.


    For the second one, I would say perhaps. While the DVD form is highly unlikely, we may see it in digital stores, such as Vudu and Itunes.


    For the last one, indeed. However, this may not be brand new from the second film, but if you are like me and you watch the HTTYD franchise in the time sequence, it will be as if it's brand new.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I might be able to answer the third one.


    You will be able to watch the TV Series on TV, but only if:
    1) You are in Australia, and
    2) You have cable.
    It has been said that Dreamworks is getting it's own television station, which airs any/all of it's TV Series branching off of the movies, and a few other custom content, like from AwesomenessTV.

    ReplyDelete
  140. For the second one, I believe the time change will not come in affect. The original TV Series was 22 minutes long, and since All Hail King Julien did not deviate from the 22 minute long episodes, you can expect that Race to the Edge will maintain the same lengthiness of the episodes as Riders/Defenders of Berk

    ReplyDelete
  141. Possibly, though according to a news release, Dagur is (possible spoiler alert) looking for revenge on Hiccup.

    ReplyDelete
  142. That might be yes. According to a video on their channel that focuses on the behind the scenes of All Hail King Julien, the animation software they used has a black outline, same as the Apollo, which was used in HTTYD 2.

  159. Dean was incredibly busy with the second movie, so he left Race to the Edge to us for the most part. Of course, we did have regular check in dinners with Dean, just to make sure we were no doing anything that was counter to the franchise as a whole.


    The Dragon Eye is incredibly important to our Edge seasons, and that's pretty much all I can tell you. We are really excited about it.


    So far we have no plans for using Cressidas other characters. But we HAVE created some new ones of our own that are pretty cool and have amazing actors portraying them -- Alfred Molina, Adaleide Kane...

    ReplyDelete
  160. I can't really say whether or not the Skrill will return. What I can say is that we LOVE that dragon and he is lurking somewhere, waiting for revenge.


    The Dragon Eye is what the entire series is centered around. It will provide the riders with all sorts of clues that will take them on amazing new adventures beyond where they have ever gone before.


    Yes, the Island on the teaser is going to be a HUGE part of the series.

    ReplyDelete
  161. I'm not sure what Dean has planned for the third movie. It is in the early creative stages so I can't really say what he will or will not include from the TV series. It would be great to see some of our characters in there though, right? Dean is pretty much a genius, so I'm sure whatever he comes up with will be amazing.


    I'll try to answer your questions, Esa by saying that the new series is a prequel to the second movie. And, as such, we will try to explain as much as we can how Berk came to be what you see in D2. That includes characters, weapons, dragons, etc.


    In terms of characters coming back from our show, the way to look at that is this: When we build a character for a CG show, it takes time and money to do so. We like to get as much use out of them as we can. It makes no sense to use a character once or twice then not use it again. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  162. Thanks for the questions, Randy. As I said above, the series is a bridge between the last two seasons and the second movie. We expect to deliver the audience to the start of D2 with our Netflix show and explain as much as we can over those episodes. That way, when you watch the second movie again, you'll see how things came to be.

    ReplyDelete
  169. My guess is perhaps. They might throw in the subtle hint of Hiccup's mother's existence, like they did in one episode where Hiccup had to retrieve a chest that was holding a stitch Deadly Nadder that his mother have given him. :) As far as Drago, yes. While we may not have the villain, there may be stepping stones up to him. I have no idea how far they will go, but I think they might make Dragon Trappers a little more known.

    ReplyDelete
  170. According to the round table videos, yes! In fact, she will have her own dragon, and there will be an episode involving her some other villain we all know and hate to love (Not going to say who due to being spoilers, as the Dragon one is a big spoiler...

  171. According to one of the round table videos, Alfred Molina is Vego/Vigo, a villain in the series.

  172. Answer to second: Heather will be back, along with her getting a Dragon of her own, and she might become a part of the Dragon Riders. For your first question, most likely not.

    ReplyDelete
  195. I am really confused. I did research to catch-up with every trailer, shorts, specials, series and movies you guys made about HTTYD. This is what I've watched so far (twice) : "Dragon Training: Lesson", "Racing for the Gold", "How to Train Your Dragon", "Gift of the Night Fury", "Book of Dragons", "Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon", "Riders of Berk", "Defenders of Berk", "Dawn of the Dragon Racers", "Race to the Edge", "How To Train Your Dragon 2". (If there is more, please do tell me).

    The thing I don't get, is why Dagur calls Hiccup his brother, then in another episode calls him his Uncle? I didn't hear a dialogue where they were related, and it confuses me more because the there seems to be a lot of people who ship Hiccup and Heather - which I think is a little weird because it sounds like they are relatives...

    Is Dagur, Hiccup and Heather all related to each other, or is it just something Dagur says?
