Ahead of the third season’s August debut on Hulu and NBC’s Peacock streaming service, the How to Train Your Dragon-inspired Dreamworks animated series Dragons: The Nine Realms has released a brand-new trailer. The show that made legendary dragons known to the general public is back with a brand-new discovery: the Fire Realm.
The dragon riders are returning to the Hidden World in seven brand-new episodes not long after the release of Dragons: The Nine Realms season two, which introduced us to the Crystal Realm, in May. This time, the riders enter a brand-new world called the Fire Realm, where they find dragons that have never been seen before. The dragon riders must learn to safely navigate the dangerous Fire Realm and keep Buzzsaw off of the elusive Lightning Bird’s trail because they are still tasked with keeping the ancient Hidden World’s secret hidden from humans. The Dragon club appears to be facing off against the most potent dragon to date in the trailer, as well as the threat of having their secrets exposed.
The Nine Realms, a How to Train Your Dragon franchise spinoff from showrunner and executive producer John Tellegen, explores an ancient universe hidden from their modern world and is set 1300 years after the first movie. The third and final instalment of the franchise, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, saw Viking Hiccup, the movie’s protagonist, discover a magical world where dragons rule supremely, untouched by humans who seek to either harness or destroy them.
The Dragon Club of The Nine Realms uncovered the mysteries of The Caldera, the gateway to the Hidden World, in the first season, and in season two the riders encountered all-new dragons in the crystal realm, including Bubblehorn, Razorwhip, and Skrill. As the kids trek a boiling magma landscape to protect the Lightning Bird in season three, the stakes are higher, just like the temperature is going up.
The voice cast of season three includes Jeremy Shada as Tom Kullersen, Ashley Liao as Jun Wong, Marcus Scribner as D’Angelo Baker, Aimee Garcia as Alexandra Gonzalez, Julia Stiles as Tom’s mother Olivia, Lauren Tom as May Wong, Keston John as Philip Baker, Justina Machado as Carla Gonzalez and D’arcy Carden as Linda.
Dragons: The Nine Realms third season debuts on Hulu and Peacock on 18 August.
