The Minecraft creators from Mojang and a team of developers called Game Mode One have teamed up with Dreamworks for a special How to Train Your Dragon DLC, which is available from the in-game Minecraft Marketplace right now.


Although the main How to Train Your Dragon film series appeared to reach a natural conclusion in 2019's How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, Dreamworks has kept the franchise alive with small-screen spinoffs, video games and other multimedia expansions. So it shouldn't come as a massive surprise that Minecraft is now getting a slice of the dragon-riding action.

With the Dragons franchise and Minecraft itself both being very popular with younger audiences, this seems like a perfect match, and you can read on to learn everything about the brand-new Minecraft: How to Train Your Dragon DLC.
