DreamWorks Animation Takes “Wizards Of Once”

DreamWorks Animation has acquired the film rights to “How To Train Your Dragon” author Cressida Cowell’s new fantasy novel series “The Wizards Of Once”.

The book series is set in a world where wizards and warriors collide, a world where magic is reviled and illegal. A 12-year-old warrior princess with a magical object sets out on the trail of a deadly (and thought to be extinct) witch. So begins a grand adventure that just might change the fabric of their world.

The pickup comes a couple weeks after DWA’s musical “Larrikins” and “The Croods” sequel were both shut down. DWA has “The Boss Baby” opening tomorrow and has a third ‘Train Your Dragon’ in the works for March 2019.
