It’s official: people really want to learn how to train their dragons.

Congrats, How to Train Your Dragon 3: you’re number one at the box office, and number one in our hearts. Variety says the animated sequel took in $55.5 million during its opening weekend, making it the biggest opening weekend of the year to date.
