Douglas Sloan & Art Edler Brown Image 7

Earlier in the week we had the opportunity to interview Dragons: Race to the Edge showrunners Douglas Sloan and Art Brown courtesy of Dreamworks. We discussed a variety of topics with them including how they originally got involved with Dragons: Riders of Berk, the challenges of developing Dragons: Race to the Edge, the shows villains and the Dragon Eye. During the interview they also revealed some things fans can look forward to in the next thirteen episodes from Race to the Edge.

Host Ruari Williamson asked them to talk about the things fans can look forward to in the third season. “You will be able to see the musical”, Sloan replied. “We think it’s one of our best episodes and is really funny.”

“Lots of dragons as usual”, Brown added. “Lots of new dragons. There’s some really cool ones coming. The Cavern Crasher, the Singetail and the Triple Strike. The Singetail and the Triple Strike will play out in future seasons”, Brown continued.

“Those are very important dragons”, Sloan added. Brown continued, “Those are ones to keep an eye on because they have bigger stories ultimately attached to them.”

The showrunners also revealed that long-time villain Dagur the Deranged will get his own dragon. “You’ll also see Dagur get his first dragon, which is really cool and hilarious”, Brown stated.

Gobber the Belch hasn’t appeared a lot in the Race to the Edge series, but the showrunners revealed that the upcoming episodes will reveal how he got his dragon Grump from How To Train Your Dragon 2. “You’ll see how Gobber got Grump”, Brown said.

Story has always been an important element in the How To Train Your Dragon franchise and the next episodes of Race to the Edge will be no different. “In terms of story, you’ll really see how the Dagur, Heather and {Dragon} Riders story plays out. You’ll {also} see some good emotional stuff between Hiccup and Astrid”, said Brown.

Chicken has become a fan-favourite since its introduction in Race to the Edge. Chicken is also a favourite with the crew of the show and Sloan and Brown promised more of Chicken this season. “You’ll see some more of Tuffnut and Chicken. We love Chicken”, Brown said. “Chicken’s one of our favourite characters”, Sloan added.

Adelaide Kane (Reign, Teen Wolf) joins the cast in the next batch of episodes. “We introduce a new tribe and she’s part of that”, Sloan said. “They’re called the Defenders of the Wing”, Brown added.
