A new holiday special called “How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming” is coming to NBC this year. The special will features everyone’s favorite dragons and humans, and will air on the network on December 3rd.
“How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming” will feature the return of Jay Baruchel as the voice of Hiccup, America Ferrera as Astrid, Gerard Butler as Stoick, Craig Ferguson as Gobber, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Fishlegs. According to the network, the events in the story take place just before the emotional epilogue from the last installment of the film trilogy, and 10 years after the end of “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.” The new installment opens with Hiccup and Toothless sharing stories of their special relationship with their respective families as they prepare for the Snoggletog Festival.
The official description reads, “When it becomes clear that the new generation of Vikings doesn’t remember the bond between dragon and human, Hiccup makes a plan to celebrate dragons with a grand holiday pageant. This heartwarming idea leads to a series of hilarious and exciting events, but no matter the circumstance, everyone in New Berk – young and old alike – is reminded that dragons and humans are forever bonded.”
If you miss the special on TV, “How to Train Your Dragon Homecoming” also will be available on DVD on December 3rd, and on Digital December 4th. You can also catch it on Hulu starting on December 5th. The holiday special is directed by Tim Johnson (Home, Antz), written by Jonathan Groff (black-ish) and Jon Pollack (Modern Family), and associate produced by Craig Rittenbaum (DreamWorks Dragons).
The “How to Train Your Dragon” film trilogy has earned more than $500M domestically, including a $55M opening weekend for the third film when it was released in February.
