How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming is the upcoming TV special produced by DreamWorks Animation. It is the second Christmas special for the franchise, following 2011's Dreamworks Dragons: Gift of the Night Fury. It will premiere simultaneously on DVD and on NBC Primetime (on that night at 8:30 ET/PT) on December 3, 2019. It was directed by Tim Johnson and written by Jonathan Groff & Jon Pollack, who previously worked together on Kung Fu Panda Holiday.
Taking place during the ending of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, a decade after the events of the movie's plot and before the emotional epilogue, the special opens with Hiccup and Toothless sharing stories of their special relationship with their respective families as they prepare for the Snoggletog Festival. 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.
