Is this a match made in heaven? Dreamworks Animation released new teaser photos of How To Train Your Dragon 3 and it seems like our favorite Night Fury dragon Toothless is in love!
In the third installment entitled How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Toothless meets another of his kind – a white dragon named Light Fury! Dean Deblois, writer and director of all the How To Train Your Dragon movies, describes newcomer Light Fury as “very rare, very elusive and very wild.”
“The Light Fury is an engine of change in our story, representing the call of the wild, which is key to Toothless’ destiny,” Deblois adds.
Light Fury is an important character who is mostly beneficial to Toothless’ destiny. The director teases that Night Fury is totally clueless about love and how to court ladies. But while Toothless is completely smitten with Light Fury, will this blossoming relationship put a strain on his relationship with Hiccup?

Grimmel sets his eyes on Toothless, the only Night Fury he hasn’t captured. Hiccup, together with everyone else, will come face to face with Grimmel the Grisly and stand together to defeat him.
