Remember when we were all supposed to have already seen How to Train Your Dragon 3 in June of this year? Yea, that didn’t happen. Then we were supposed to get in sometime in 2017. Then 2018. Now, and hopefully finally, the movie has been pushed once again to 2019. The new date is Friday, March 19. So block of your calendar, I guess.
That’s a lot of movement for what should be a sure-thing, quality success. But don’t be too concerned the delay is more likely due to Comcast’s purchase of Dreamworks and the new control under Universal. The studio is tailoring back its aggressive 3 movie a year plan, and rearranging your successful franchise is pretty easy since they know it has legs.
