How to Train Your Dragon 3 has been delayed to 2018.

The move comes as DreamWorks Animation announced that it is reducing its output of feature films from three per year to two.

"The number one priority for DreamWorks Animation's core film business is to deliver consistent, creative and financial success," said CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.

"I am confident that this strategic plan will deliver great films, better box office results, and growing profitability across our complementary businesses."

Around 500 jobs are also being cut as a result.

DreamWorks Animation's new release schedule sees Kung Fu Panda 3 and Trolls launch in 2016, and Boss Baby and The Croods 2 land in 2017.

How to Train Your Dragon 3's new launch date is June 29, 2018, with Larrikins releasing in the same year.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 recently won the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature Film. It is also nominated for an Academy Award.
