Humans dwell on imagination. Ever since we were kids, we loved to hear the stories of dragons and dragon slayers, of witches and monsters, of kings and queens. It was the tales of the imaginary world that attracted us. No one wanted to hear about what’s going on with the politics on the other side of the world. The world was a smaller place back then. It had only two places in it — the place where we lived and the place where the stories, we were told thrived. Realists can argue all they want, but without the grand imaginations and far-fetched tales, the world would have never moved forward. Everyone loves the world where the Dragon Queen lives, or the one in the far future where humans co-exist with the other species (that mostly resemble the mythical creatures we have heard about so much!)
There is a reason that stories like ‘Lord of the Rings’, ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ are so popular amongst the audience. Everyone wants to escape this world that entraps them in their mundane life. In fact, pretty sure, everyone has concocted a place in their mind, a world where, if given the chance, they would like to travel to. The future of cinema holds a lot of promise when it comes to fantasy movies. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what are the new Fantasy movies releasing in 2019 and 2020? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of the upcoming Fantasy films scheduled to release in 2019 and beyond. We hope that these latest fantasy movies are as good as some of the recent ones.
20. The Kid Who Would Be King (January 25, 2019)

19. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (February 22, 2019)
‘How to Train Your Dragon’ is a book series written by Cressida Cowell. The series formed the basis for the film that told the story of a young Viking who befriends a dragon when the rest of his clans are enemies to them! The film was widely loved, in both critical and commercial circles, and at first, it appeared to be the end of the story. But that was never the plan of the filmmakers. There are twelve books in total (in case you wanted to read them!), which points towards the fact that there is a ton of material that can be used to create a whole franchise. The story of Hiccup and Toothless was meant to come out as a trilogy and with ‘The Hidden World’, it will come to its proper conclusion. It will start sometime after the events of the second film. Old secrets were revealed and new characters were introduced in the second film which set the stage for the things that will happen in the final part. Just when Hiccup thinks that he has set everything straight for his clan which has learned to happily live with their dragons, a new danger lurks on the horizon. Hiccup and Toothless must travel to a place that had only existed in myths and face a new, worse enemy and save the ones they love from it.
