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.
