‘How To Train Your Dragon’ Is Getting A Live-Action Movie And I’m Not Sure How I Feel

Another popular animated movie is about to be remade into a live-action film. I sure hope it’s gonna be good.

One of my favorite franchises — outside of Disney — is the How To Train Your Dragon films.

However, Hiccup and Toothless are about to be turned into live-action characters, and I’m just not sure how I feel about the whole thing.

I am not a huge fan of all the live-action remakes of classic animated films that I love. *Grumpy Face*

Maybe I’m in the minority, but I just think the animated versions of films like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Pinnochio are far superior to their live-action counterparts.


Do we really need to turn EVERY animated classic into a live-action film?!?

Well, apparently Universal Pictures has jumped on the live-action bandwagon, because they are about to bring us How To Train Your Dragon, the live-action version.

The film is in the casting process, and already has a writer and producer,  Dean DeBlois — who worked on the other animated How To Train Your Dragon films.

And, get this, they already have a release date for the live-action How To Train Your Dragon.

According to, it is set to hit theaters March 14, 2025.

Not much else is known about the How To Train Your Dragon live-action film, but we will keep you updated as we learn more.

How do YOU feel about a live-action version of the popular franchise?
