Dreamworks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon trilogy has come to an emotional conclusion, and to discuss the making of the final film, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, writer-director Dean DeBlois is featured on a new episode of The Hollywood Reporter's podcast series Behind the Screen.

The How to Train Your Dragon movies chronicle the coming-of-age story of Hiccup, whose father is the leader of his Viking village of Berk. The two prior films earned Academy Award nominations for best animated feature, and composer John Powell was nominated for the score for the first installment.

On the new podcast, DeBlois talks about the new pic and the emotional ending to the trilogy.
