You’d feel it’s wise not to play with a good ending but there’s the Toy Story franchise too. Pixar hasn’t mind to continue the franchise over the years. Messing with a good ending can be sacred, which is why DeBlois’ idea to have the How To Train Your Dragon to continue by exploring a different world could be a clever approach. Star Trek and Star Wars have done it too and we hope it happens again.

The movie is expected to win the weekend. Bring your tissues, the final installment of the trilogy may make you cry.
