Filipino fans bade a heartfelt farewell to the “How to Train Your Dragon” franchise as its last chapter “The Hidden World” opened at No.1 at the Philippine box-office with a soaring P91.5-million in a five-day opening weekend (Feb. 20-24).

“The Hidden World” bested the P85-million bow of 2014’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” the previous highest opening for the beloved franchise.

Local moviegoers fittingly sent off beloved hero Hiccup and his dragon, Toothless, in a big way, as evidenced by positive post-screening reactions and emotional tributes in social media.

In the U.S., the finale in the animated trilogy opened with $55.5 million, a franchise-best debut. It now also holds the distinction as the biggest opening weekend of the year to date.

The animated adventure is also dominating internationally. Propelled by glowing word of mouth, “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” has ruled the international box office, swooping up $216 million since beginning its international rollout in January.

Now playing in Philippine cinemas and IMAX, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
