How To Train Your Dragon 2 has had its Comic-Con panel, which included what’s been described as an ‘awesome’ clip from the movie, along with the news that Cate Blanchett and Djimon Hounsou will be part of the voice cast of the film.
Cinemablend reports that more was revealed about Kit Harington’s previously announced role in the movie. He’ll be “a self-declared world’s greatest dragon trapper. He’s very brazen,” according to DreamWorks.
Harington’s villain will be joined by Hounsou on the evil side of things, as he’ll be playing a character with the suitably dangerous name of Drago Bloodfist. Blanchett meanwhile will be somebody called Volca. Director Dean DeBlois describes her as, “A feral recluse vigilante that’s been out there rescuing dragons from traps.”
Here’s the synopsis: ‘The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.’
The film is currently due out June 20th, 2014.
