Should we expect the fourth movie?
The chances of a fourth movie are very unlikely. And also the writer and director also said in an interview that “If DreamWorks in the future were to go back into the world of Dragons, I think they would have to do it in a different timeline with different characters and find a new way into it, because this really is the closure to this story, and that was delivered on my part”. With this, I believe the fans will have to let go of their hopes for a new movie to the franchise.
