Jack Thomas (Regular Show, Dragons: Race to the Edge) will serve as executive producer and Brian Roberts (VeggieTales) will serve as co-executive producer. Dragons Rescue Riders: Heroes of the Sky will produced by DreamWorks Animation, who also produced the main How to Train Your Dragon series.

The original How to Train Your Dragon film franchise debuted in 2010. The story follows Hiccup, a Norse teenaged misfit from the island of Berk where dragon fighting is a common practice within his culture. Hiccup finds himself in dragon-fighting school where he sets out to prove himself, but his life is soon changed when he befriends an injured dragon, whom he names Toothless. The movie was a huge success and received three sequels soon after.

It will be interesting to see what wonderful adventures Peacock has in store for the beloved viking dragon series.
