It’s been a good while since we’ve had a How to Train Your Dragon movie, hasn’t it? That movie hit nearly four years ago, and while the film didn’t exactly set the North American box office on fire (only bringing in $177M), it more than made up for it in its worldwide cume, which ended north of $620M. That, coupled with the ongoing series Dragons: Race to the Edge, pretty much guaranteed we’d be getting a third film.

If you’ve been hungry for first details for the animated flick, then we’re in luck. We have some news for you, courtesy of Variety. According to Variety, the film is titled How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, and will hit theaters in 2019. While the title is…fine…I can’t help but be a little bit annoyed that it has a subtitle when the second film has a number.

Yes, I know having subtitles is the thing to do in movies nowadays, but come on, a little consistency would have been nice!

There aren’t any other real details regarding the movie, but they aren’t too far from coming! There will be a sneak peek of the film at this year’s Annecy International Film Festival, where audiences will learn a lot more about the culmination of the franchise to this point.

“As well as being a major artist, Dean DeBlois is a longtime friend of Annecy,” said Marcel Jean, artistic director of the Annecy Film Festival in a statement. “We are excited to welcome him this year and present his work in a context that will emphasize his great talent. The How to Train Your Dragon franchise is closely linked to our Festival and this is why we are eager to offer our audience the chance to preview footage from the film.”
