Production has wrapped on the live-action adaptation of "How To Train Your Dragon".

The filmmaker in charge of the project, Dean DeBlois, shared the news through his Instagram account, letting audiences know they are one step closer to seeing a new version of the story they know and love. 

Principal photography for the new iteration of Hiccup's (Mason Thames) journey began in January, after a delay caused by last year's strikes organized by the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA. But after four months of hard work, the team managed to get the remake through the finish line around a year ahead of its scheduled theatrical release date.

The movie is currently scheduled to premiere in theaters on June 13, 2025, breathing new life into the story that first originated in Cressida Cowell's books. 

Hiccup will learn how to take flight with Toothless once again, in a new version of the DreamWorks Animation classic directed by the same person who helmed the original.

"How To Train Your Dragon" also stars Gerard Butler as Hiccup's father Stoick, Nico Parker as Astrid, and Nick Frost as Gobber the Belch. Julian Dennison and Ruth Codd have also been cast in the project.

"How To Train Your Dragon" will follow the same premise as the animated movie, with Hiccup feeling insecure because he doesn't fit within the Berk lifestyle despite his impressive amount of knowledge regarding dragons bult decades of battling the creatures.

However, the community's desire to hunt dragons will clash with Hiccup's new ideology, with Stoick's son wanting to befriend the creatures after running into Toothless. 

While Hiccup attempts to find a way to convince his peers that dragons can be their allies, instead of their prey, he tries to make Astrid fall in love with him and improve his complicated relationship with his father, setting the stage for the unpredictable adventures the pair fly through.

The original How To Train Your Dragon was successful enough for DreamWorks to produce two sequels. 

The trilogy earned a combined $1.6 billion at the global box office over a decade. 

In addition to the theatrical releases, DreamWorks has worked with Netflix, Hulu, and Peacock to launch various television series set in the world of the movies. 

The upcoming live-action adaptation is yet another expansion of the franchise that began back in 2010 when Hiccup and Toothless' friendship began on the big screen.
