Canadian-born DEAN DEBLOIS (Written and Directed by/Executive Producer) is equally at home in the worlds of live-action and animation filmmaking. Although already an accomplished animator and writer at the time the film became a worldwide hit, he became well known for writing and directing Walt Disney Animation Studios' Lilo & Stitch with Chris Sanders.

DeBlois later stepped behind the live-action camera to direct the indie critical darling Heima, which documents alternative/post-rock band Sigur Rós' series of free, unannounced concerts performed in their home country of Iceland. He also previously served as head of story on the Disney hit Mulan.

DeBlois once again collaborated with Sanders to write and direct his first film for DreamWorks Animation, How to Train Your Dragon. In addition, DeBlois is set to write, produce and direct the live-action comedy The Banshee and Fin Magee. He also has several live-action projects in development at Universal Pictures and The Walt Disney Studios, on which he is serving as writer, director and producer.

The writer/director of How to Train Your Dragon 2 and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World began his career at Hinton Animation Studios and worked as animator on the television series The Raccoons. He next joined Don Bluth's Sullivan Bluth Studios in Ireland and worked on the animated features Thumbelina and A Troll in Central Park.
