During today’s DreamWorks Animation panel at Comic-Con, the roles of some of the new voice-casting additions were revealed for How to Train Your Dragon 2. Previously-reported star Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) will voice “Eret, a cocky dragon trapper complete with swagger and a London accent.” He’ll work for Djimon Hounsou’s character, who turns those captured dragons into an army. Newcomer Cate Blanchett (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) joins the cast as “Valka, a stealthy vigilante type set on rescuing as many of the dragons as possible.” (Thanks to BleedingCool for the casting update!) Be sure to check out our panel recap for DreamWorks Animation later today.
The film also features the voices of Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller, Kristen Wiig and Gerard Butler. How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens in 3D on June 20, 2014.
