As we reported back in October, Jay Baruchel, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, and Kristen Wiig will reprise their roles in DreamWorks Animation’s sequel to How to Train Your Dragon. Empire now reports that Gerard Butler, who played Hiccup’s father, Stoick the Vast, will return as well. Dean DeBlois, who co-directed the first film, will go solo on the sequel. Also, in his recent interview with Steve, cinematographer Roger Deakins (True Grit) revealed that he would be consulting on the picture.
Not much is known about the new film other than it will be “epic” and go far beyond the tiny Viking island of Berk. The sequel to How to Train Your Dragon is set for release in 2013.
