Hiccup and Toothless have more adventures ahead -- separately, and together -- in "How to Train Your Dragon 3."
DreamWorks just revealed the movie's title and plot, and confirmed the March 1, 2019 release date.
The third movie in the franchise is called "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World."

Here's the synopsis:
"As Hiccup fulfills his dream of creating a peaceful dragon utopia, Toothless's discovery of an untamed, elusive mate draws the Night Fury away.
When danger mounts at home and Hiccup's reign as village chief is tested, both dragon and rider must make impossible decisions to save their kind."
"Impossible decisions" sounds troubling. Poor Toothless and Hiccup.
This third movie follows the success of "DreamWorks Dragons" series on Cartoon Network and then Netflix.
The usual suspects will be returning to voice the third movie, including Jay Baruchel as Hiccup, America Ferrera as Astrid Hofferson, and Cate Blanchett as Valka. However, we now have a new villain named Grimmel, voiced by none other than F. Murray Abraham.
A preview of "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" will show during the Annecy International Animation Film Festival this June. The movie itself is set for release March 1, 2019.
