How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Speaking with GameSpot, Hiccup voice actor Jay Baruchel described the final film of the How to Train Your Dragon trilogy as “a bit melancholy.”

I think they’re gonna be simultaneously sad and satisfied. It’s hard not to get a bit kind of wistful, a bit melancholy. You know, I auditioned for this movie when I was shooting a movie called Tropic Thunder... There’s very few things I’ve done for this long. I’ve been a son for 36 years. Been an actor for 20 some odd [years]. [I’ve] never played a part for as long as I played Hiccup. So it’s gonna be [melancholic] to say goodbye.
