The Hidden World is the third and final installment in the successful How To Train Your Dragon series. The series about a guy (Hiccup) who rescues dragons with his fellow dragon riders grossed over 1 billion dollars worldwide. The score features the film's original written by the Academy Award-nominated composer John Powell, who has previously scored the first two installments in the How to Train Your Dragon series. He composed the scores to over fifty feature films, including the award wining The Bourne trilogy, Shrek, and Kung Fu Panda. Powell was a member of Hans Zimmer's music studio and collaborated several times with both Harry Gregson-Williams and Zimmer himself.
Also included in this soundtrack release is the exclusive “Together from Afar”, performed by Jónsi (Sigur Rós). The Icelandic musician also recorded two tracks for the second HTTYD movie. As a bonus “The Hidden World Suite” is added on side D.
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is directed by Dean DeBlois and features the voices of Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Kit Harrington, Craig Ferguson and others. The album is available as a limited edition of 1000 individually numbered copies on dragon-green colored vinyl. The package includes a 4-page booklet + exclusive postcard.
