DreamWorks Animation announced today that How to Train Your Dragon 2 crossed the $600 million mark on Labor Day, while the third installment has been pushed back a year.
A record-breaking opening in China coupled with success in territories around the world have catapulted "Dragon 2" to become the highest-grossing animated film of the year and one of the top ten grossing films of the year in any genre. Through Monday, How to Train Your Dragon 2 has grossed $174 million domestically and $426 million in international markets.
From the same creative team as the first two films, writer/director Dean DeBlois and producer Bonnie Arnold, How to Train Your Dragon 3 continues the story where the sequel leaves off. Returning cast includes Jay Baruchel as Hiccup, America Ferrera as Astrid and Cate Blanchett as Valka.
