The second How to Train Your Dragon film will expand to a larger world, allowing this sequel to be the bridge to at least one more film after it.  The book series has 8 volumes, so there is plenty in the stories to pull from.  There are promises of new dragons, new characters, and yet a focus on the beloved Hiccup and Toothless. 

Thanks to /Film for the news.
