The cost of CGI will stand as a challenge for the live-action remake

The movie franchise How to Train Your Dragon revolves around the growing bond between the young Viking named Hiccup and the injured dragon Toothless. The movie will hit the theaters by 2025 and the announcement of the live-action adaptation has instilled mixed responses. The animated version still has an ardent set of followers. And bringing the dragons and Vikings with all the props used, into live-action can be quite challenging.

If it was another sequel in animation, the fame of the movie franchise would still stand tall. But with many challenges to overcome, it would be a major task for the creators of the movie. The usage of CGI and the cost thereafter will be a huge burden for the movie makers, Screenrant notes. The dragons play a very important role in the movie so their screen time can’t easily be cut down. If cut down, it would be an injustice to the original of the movie. The animated version uses a variety of dragons in different proportions and colors.
