Very disappointing

I loved the original 3 and this sort of just ruined how vikings now love dragons

Hi so I love the how to train your dragon movie series but was a little disappointed about this one because I feel like it could've been longer since it was basically a ten year gap . I feel like I got left hanging a little bit. I'm in love with the story line and was really hoping for more I'm hoping to see another part at least since it ended sooner than expected.
